PRESENTED BY TOM MILLETT
Stagger Lee began 2007 with a debaucherous NYE gig and have since been preparing for the release of their debut single 'Bad Shoes' on Friday 13th April on their own label, Split Lip Records. The single comes with some tasty fetish artwork and includes the video for 'Bad Shoes' shot by the notorious Love Action. Their sound embodies the spirit of Robert Johnson's Devil-at-the-crossroads and Mavis Staples sultry gospel cry combined with the energy and attitude of The Stooges, The Cramps and Siouxsie Sioux.
Highlights to date have included appearances with The Kills, Jon Spencer Blues Xplosion, The Duke Spirit, Sleater Kinny, The Long Blondes, and Pink Grease in the notorious White Trash club in Berlin. Stagger Lee were also invited to play at the Irish launch night of the European MySpace Festival and the Fringe Festival's beautiful Speigeltent in 2006.
On Friday 13th April Stagger Lee play an in-store in Tower Records, Wicklow Street, to launch 'Bad Shoes' followed by an official launch party in Crawdaddy on Sat April 14th. This night promises to be the party to end all parties, with a video premier, some beautiful dancing ladies from the Tassel Club and more dirt, sleaze and rock n roll then you can handle!www.myspace.com/staggerleeband
