The Sleazoids – The Cult of The Sleazoids (Spinout Nuggets)

imagine the heady thrills of The Cramps, The Stooges, Count Five, and The Monks, all rolled into one thrilling package. What do you get? Welcome to the electrifying world of The Sleazoids! This Sheffield-based, three-piece garage punk band features the dynamic Missy Tasles on Vox and Guitars, the hard-hitting Paul Dorrington on Bass and Vox, and the beat master, Mitch Genner, on the skins.

Their second album, The Cult of The Sleazoids, released by the Spinout Nuggets label, is an unmissable homage to underground Rock ‘n Roll. True to its roots, it’s a wild cocktail of shrieking vocals, raw guitars, and a rhythm section that hammers out a primal beat, beckoning you back to the era of stone-age rebellion.

Spread across twelve tracks, this album is a rollicking journey through late 70’s and early 80’s punk inspirations. The ominous opener, with its power-packed riffs and rhythms, evokes memories of the golden era of bands like The Partisans and Xray Spex.

But prepare yourselves, because the ride gets wilder as you journey further. Meet Otto’s Shrunken Head – a primitive garage rock anthem oozing with an irresistible groove. It’s an invitation to the wildest party in town, the Ooga-Booga bash you never knew you needed. Then, there’s ‘Soho Sleaze’. This song is a time machine, transporting you back to the height of The Who era. It’s undoubtedly one of the standout tracks of the album. And just when you thought things couldn’t get any more intense, along comes ‘Devil’s Rain vibe straight outta 1966, it’s a garage punk masterpiece that hits you right in the feels.

We can’t help but adore The Sleazoids. Their music stirs up wistfulness, reminding us about the primal and unadulterated love affair we all have with raw Rock ‘n Roll. So, why not join the cult and let the Sleazoids take you on a wild ride through the glory days of Garage Punk? Trust us; you’re in for an unforgettable journey.
