Low Cut Connie

Low Cut Connie began on a sweaty little tour of Portugal when New Jersey-born piano-pounder Adam Weiner (aka Ladyfingers) and Birmingham UK's favorite garage cat Dan Finnemore decided to join forces and form a rock n roll supergroup. That July, they met with frequent Weiner collaborator, guitarist/engineer Neil Duncan at the tiny analog studio in his garage in Gainesville Florida. Over the course of 4 scorching days, the boys tracked their first record, "Get Out the Lotion". Their brand of raw and raucous rock n roll was ecstatic and infectious and with the album' release in Jan 2011 immediately brought the band immense notice. In March 2011, the legendary rock critic Robert Christgau (aka "the Dean of American Rock Critics") gave the album a glowing review, which heralded an onslaught of major press and accolades generally unheard of for an unsigned artist's debut record. Rolling Stone gave the album a stellar review, which was soon followed by a major feature on NPR's top-rated national program "Fresh Air with Terry Gross". NPR's critic Ken Tucker (the editor-at-large for Entertainment Weekly) rhapsodized about the inspiring and bracing energy of Low Cut Connie. Legendary critic and Bruce Springsteen biographer Dave Marsh, on his popular Sirius XM radio show "Kick Out the Jams", called Low Cut Connie "the most important American band to come along in years." In the wake of all this press, the boys sold thousands of copies of their sexy little record and began buying designer jeans. At the end of 2011, the record made over a dozen "Best of 2011" lists, including NPR Fresh Air's top 10 albums of the year. In September of 2012 the Connies are releasing CALL ME SYLVIA, their sophomore album…and hitting the road with their stellar death-defying titillating rock n roll show.
