Introducing >>> The Cigarette Bums

The Cigarette Bums are described as “a Dylan-meets-Daniel Johnston–meets-Replacements-meets-Beefheart smash-up”, which, upon a couple of spins of debut single Rude Dude would seem as accurate as anything we might have come up with.

Less frenzied or raw than you might expect, there is nothing sloppy about these fellas and real, honest-to-goodness songwriting chops are hard at work here. It channels its undeniable energy into delivering an infectiously catchy slab of garage pop, propelled by frenetic but never out of control guitars, dynamic percussion and laced with a vocal that sounds like it comes straight off of a slab of classic 60s Detroit vinyl.

Have a listen. You can also pick up their Holy Smokes EP on a name-your-price digital deal or limited cassette for $6 from their Bandcamp page here.
