The paths of New Jersey piano-pounding hell-raiser Adam Weiner and Birmingham UK’s hit machine Dan “Swampmeat” Finnemore collided one fateful night in a gnarly warehouse in the Digbeth district of Birmingham. After being stuck in a freight elevator for 4 hours with nothing but guitars and a duffel bag of booze, they emerged as brothers from across the pond. They both shared a deep love for Jerry Lee Lewis, James Brown’s hair, the genius of Chevy Chase, and a plate of well-seasoned chops. Each with a huge bag of hits, they decided to ambush the rock n roll scene like a pair of songwriting panthers. With tracks such as “Boozophilia”, “Sister Mary”, “Don’t Cry Baby Blue”, and “(No More) Wet T-shirt Contests”, the boys really paint a rainbow of human emotion. With a hot-blooded troupe of gutterpups behind them, Adam and Dan formed Low Cut Connie with a desire to titillate and massage the throbbing cultural masses in unknown ways.
If you allow it into your life, Call Me Sylvia will touch your heart and caress your flesh. This is an album that will be there for you the morning after.
Low Cut Connie….a new boogie for all mankind.
Recent quotes about the Connie boys:
Rolling Stone: “Chugging scuzzbucket boogie…equipped with whiskey breath and a satchel full of filthy jokes.”
NPR/Fresh Air: “It startles you with just how much juice, passion and wit has gone into making this sound”
AllMusic Guide: “Like the best rock & roll of any era, this lives passionately and messily for the moment, and as Call Me Sylvia spills forth, it’s hard not to get swept into its giddy, filthy joy.”
Dave Marsh: “One of the most important American bands to come along in years.”
Robert Christgau: “Low Cut Connie rips shit up”…”Resolute rock n roll.”
