Review: Steve E. Nix and the Cute Lepers – Terminal Boredom b/w Prove It


Label: 1-2-3-4 Go! Records

Released: July 3, 2007

Steve E Nix and the Cute Lepers serve up a fun little slab of old-school punk and new wave on this EP. “Terminal Boredom” is ’77-style punk rock that borrows heavily from the Clash and Ramones, while “Prove It” could almost be a outtake from Elvis Costello’s “Armed Forces.” If you’re gonna borrow, borrow from the best and Steve E and company certainly do that with just the right amount of snotty punk rock swagger.

Rating: 6/10
