“Smart Accessories” is the title track of the Cute Lepers latest album, who, as I’m sure you know, are a six/sometimes seven-piece band from Seattle, WA equally influenced by first wave punk, mod-revival, power pop, with the spirit of Johnny Thunders…together with occasional hints of doo-wop, early 60’s rock ‘n’ roll and a load of female back-up vocals. Led by chief songwriter Steve E. Nix & Kicks (Ex of The Briefs!).
EXCLUSIVE B-SIDE : YOU’RE GONNA LOSE THAT GIRL (Beatles cover)
After a couple sold out singles and lengthy tours of the United States and Europe, summer 2008 their debut album “Can’t Stand Modern Music” was released on DG in Europe and Blackheart Records (Joan Jett’s label!) in the US. It combined the attitude of punk rock, the style of mod, and the polished sound of pop. The album went on to win the Best Punk Album category in the 8th Annual Independent Music Awards. Now they’re back with their second album “Smart Accessories” which follows much the same path, 13 new tracks including the recent single ‘Berlin Girls’ along with 12 other punk-pop classics. The band head out on a lengthy European tour throughout May 2010 and will also be back for a bigger tour in the Fall.
