Cusses, Cement Stars
02/19/2013 08:00 PM EST
Cusses aren't easy to define. However, whether their guitar driven, fuzzed out brand of music reminds you of The Runaways meets The Ramones or Siouxsie and the Banshees meets Jet, or even Pat Benatar with some heavy handed riot grrrl sass, it is impossible to come away with any other conclusion than this: Cusses are bringing back real, effortless, speaker-blasting rock & roll. A band that would be right at home taking center stage at CBGB. Lead singer Angel Bond was introduced to drummer Brian Lackey through mutual friends, and they have not separated since. The two headed to Savannah, Georgia in 2009, and met up with Brian's long time friend, guitarist and past band mate, Bryan Harder (they opened for post-hardcore legends Fugazi in their last band together!). The three formed Cusses that summer and played their first show in February 2010. And now their debut album, Cusses. Cement Stars
Cement Stars creates a unique aural experience with familiar components, drawing influence from different genres, eras and musical styles. While Cement Stars saw its beginnings as a lo-fi bedroom recording project between the Chicago-born, Charlotte-based fraternal duo of Shaun and Bryan Olson in the fall of 2006, the band has recently expanded to a 5-piece.
