Been a band for 10 years still nobody knows what to make of Lame Drivers: “a young Replacements or Guided By Voices?“ “like the Buzzcocks getting a reacharound from the Descendents?” “Pell Mell?” “Jesus & Mary Chain?” ”the Clean as a girl group doing a talkie?” “Member of Home Blitz...”
WFMU's Terre T calls it “all my favorite rock elements." Led by fellow WFMU DJ Jason Sigal, Lame Drivers treat the band like a freeform radio show, channeling an array of influences thru the classic power trio lineup. "Teenline power pop is their natural fighting weight," KFJC's Thurston Hunger writes in a review that picks up on everything from Graham Parker to krautrock to Jay Reatard, "but they'll weird it up!"
* in 2011, Lame Drivers released Cruisin' Classics 2003-2010, a 27-song mp3 sampler, for free online right here. It's since had 10,000+ downloads and airplay on WFMU (heavy airplay!), WNYU, WPRB, WMBR, WZBC, WAIF, KXLU, KDVS, KUSF, KFJC, East Village Radio and beyond.
