Were drummerless and not playing out at the moment, there has been some other news I hadnt bothered to add. Trite Ditties and Meaningless Crap has finally made it to vinyl. Its on Rapid Pulse Records. And last year we recorded an Unnatural Axe song for a vinyl-only double LP tribute entitled Ruling the World From the Backseat. Lawless records. Check it out
Another comp appearance, on Bouncing Betty records out of Chicago. Its us (Hot Lunch, from the first record), Fang, Turbo ACs, Clit 45, Lower Class Brats, Naked Aggression, Rotten Fruits, Darkbuster, Street Brats, and lots more.
Weve finally released a new song. Only took two years. And its only one lousy song at that, as were a bunch of lazy ass drunks. The song is about the dangers of being a bunch of lazy ass drunks - its called Wild Turkey Is Not A Meat. Its on the new Rapid Pulse Records comp, Lets Have Some God Damn Fun! Its full of mostly NYC bands, namely: Little Killers, Andy G and the Roller Kings, the Plungers, Some Action, the Shemps, the Swaggerts, Electric Shadows, Shop Fronts, the Yams, DC Snipers, the Stags, World War IX, the Disruptors, Weekenders, and Mob Stereo.
We just put the finishing touches on the Chaos Kitchen theme song. Chaos Kitchen is a punk rock cooking tv show that will be unleashed on local RI cable this fall. There's a screening on 7/29 at the Providence A.L.H. with Cranked Up!, the Swaggerin' Growlers, the Flash Attackes, and Witches With Dicks. Should be a good time. CLICK HERE to have a listen.
Were a the new comp on No Front Teeth out of London, sharing CD space with the likes of Smogtown, the Skulls, Smut Peddlers, Duane Peters & the Hunns, the Ends, the Shocks, the Kickz, Sick Fits, Texas Terri, District, Jeffie Genetic and His Clones, Midnight Creeps, and a bunch more.

And there will be UK dates in May, including the Morcambe Wasted Festival.
Were on the new Lollipop sampler. The last one had some good company like the TSOL and the Stitches. This time around the company is a bit weaker, but our good friends Some Action from NYC are on there. So if it were a party instead of an MP3 CD sampler, wed at least have someone we know to drink with.
I dont think theres any danger of us being considered a very political band, but sheesh, this FCC crap has got to stop. Throw a digital stone through their window at www.stopfcc.com
Singing and guitar playing Sleazie Jami is filling in on guitar with our pals Midnight Creeps. There was going to be a US tour in April, but it has been canceled due to family health problems. The Creeps will be playing the Wasted Festival in Morecambe, UK in July, doing both a Creeps set and as TV Smiths back-up band. A European tour with the NY Rel-X and Deadline will follow after the festival. The Creeps will be covering a Sleazies song, which is the closest there will be to a Sleazies European tour any time soon. Well post dates when we have them.
Weve got some songs up on Mohawk Radio - they happen to be the same ones on this site, but go check out Mohawk Radio radio any way. Listen to the Skulls and the Ends if nothing else.
Gonna Operate On Myself is in its second pressing. It wont be around forever, so if youre the vinyl type, pick it up soon. Rapid Pulse Records
Were doing a giveaway contest thingamagigger on interpunk. Grand prize is this cool ass guitar deck that our talented and handsome young drummer whipped up. By guitar deck we actually mean three quarter scale bass deck, but its still really cool. Especially if youre a bass player with small fingers. Stop by www.interpunk.com and cough up your name and email address and youre entered to win free shit. Youre welcome to buy the album while youre at it.
Our first full-length album, TRITE DITTIES AND MEANINGLESS CRAP on Pelado Records, is coming out 1/24/04. Were playing a couple of record release shows as were told thats what youre supposed to do when you put out a record. Unfortunately, by record we mean CD - thus far this is a CD-only release so sorry to all you vinyl folks. Write angry letters to Alien Snatch or somebody demanding Sleazies vinyl. The CD is available online from www.punkrockmailorder.com
The Sleazies are now a four piece. With the addition of long time Providence rock guy Pete Burr, aka Complete Blur (ex. Mother Jefferson, current Suicide Liquors, and probably a bunch more) we are now twice as bristling with guitars as we were before.
John Darga is our new bass player (ex. Wrecking Crew, Hellcats from Outer Space, Ashley von Hurter & the Haters, the Applause, Sinners Club, Fast Actin Fuses, and some others Im forgetting)
