CUTE LEPERS/ LURCHING LEPER, THE / DISCO LEPERS: Join the Lepers: 7″

If Cartman from South Park created a punk band, then it would resemble what the tunes from Disco Lepers sound like on this split. Consider the content found herein with track titles: “Nazi Tampons” and “Epileptic Sex.” What’s even more astounding is the vocal shrill you’ll find coming from the record player. I wouldn’t be surprised if one day we found out that the members of the Disco Lepers were actually the voice actors for Cartman. On the other side of the split there are basically two worthwhile pop punk tunes from The Briefs… coughcough… umm… I mean Steve E. Nix of the Cute Lepers and with him posing as some other band thingy called The Lurching Leper. The tune “Death by Magazine” is actually a surprisingly snappy lo-fi number with a new wave feel minus the keyboards. One day I hope I can join the Leper Enterprise as some street-wise gangsta rapper ‘cause I think it’d be cool to add a Leper-Con to the Leper ranks. Until then, I’ll just hold my breath while I keep spinning this 7”.
