  • 15/06/2011: No Front Teeth Records release Cute Lepers - Tribute To Charlie single

From the No Front Teeth website:

"The Cute Lepers are back spitting out power pop gems at high speed and they continue to navigate the same territory pioneered by bands like The Buzzcocks, The Beat, The Jam, and The Boys pioneered a generation before, but with the quirks and crooked teeth you'd expect from two guys who used to be in The Briefs. "Tribute To Charlie" is the opening track from the brand new 'Adventure Time' LP, and in addition to the usual Cute Lepers formula this is the best saxophone use in a punk song since The Saints "Know Your Product". This song is an ode to UK Subs frontman Charlie Harper by name and a number of other die-hards in spirit. The exclusive B-Side is a demo version of "Misdirected" - also from the 'Adventure Time' LP - a faster, raw practice room recording that rocks like crazy. Like everything this leper colony spits out, this 7" is an undeniable ear worm. I defy you to not wake up tomorrow after hearing "Tribute To Charlie" in your head first thing.
There are two cover designs for this 7". The regular version is the black sleeve and the limited version (150 only) is the white sleeve. Email if you want a limited version as they cost a litte more and will fly.
Tracks: Tribute To Charlie / Misdirected (Raw Demo Version)"
