Interview by The Cute Lepers
'77 punk might be the
jumping off point for Cute Lepers -- there's even a song called "'77" on
their latest album -- but they take that sound and run with it, taking
it to places that the Ramones and Heartbreakers never imagined. That new
album, Adventure Time (1-2-3-4-Go!/Damaged Goods), is chock-full
of catchy anthemic hits and is a cinch to place in the upper reaches of
efd's 2011 Best Of list. They're playing live on Thursday Sept. 1 at
the Knitting Factory in Brooklyn and are touring extensively across the
US; check cutelepers.com for a show near you, and tune in on Sept. 7 to
hear them live on WFMU! Check out a short video of the performance on Vimeo!
