The Cute Lepers: Can't Stand Modern Music
Buy! - (Blackheart)
The debut album from this Seattle band led by ex-Briefs guitarist Steve E. Nix is an energetic set of punkish power-pop rooted in the more melodic bands of Britain’s ‘70s punk movement (the Buzzcocks, Undertones, Vibrators, Generation X). In other words, they’re similar to the music of Nix’s former band, but with a bit less punk attitude and more unabashedly pop in approach, putting them closer to the sound of Portland’s late great Exploding Hearts (though not as deliberately lo-fi). 6/10/2008 - Don Yates
