Jeffrey Lewis & Los Bolts
Jeffrey Lewis & Los Bolts (NYC, Rough Trade Records) play a crazy, original mix of scuzzy urban indie-rock, literate lyrics and comic book punk, like a 21st Century mash-up of Sonic Youth, Pete Seeger and R. Crumb. Jeffrey has done tours in Europe and America and Australia and Asia and elsewhere, a few tours every year since 2001, as well as sometimes playing as the opening act for bands like the Mountain Goats, Daniel Johnston, Stephen Malkmus & The Jicks, The Fall, Pulp, Roky Erickson, The Vaselines and other luminaries. Jeffrey has released seven critically acclaimed albums on Rough Trade Records, in addition to occasional self-releases and projects on other labels (like K Records and Don Giovanni), and Jeffrey continues to self-publish his art and writing in an ongoing underground comic book series called Fuff. Current Los Bolts bandmates Brent (Moldy Peaches) Cole on drums and Mem (Cat Tatt) Pahl on bass are sometimes joined by Jeffrey’s brother and longtime collaborator Jack Lewis, filling the band out from a 3-piece to a 4-piece for certain tours. Recent band projects include a covers album called “Works by Tuli Kupferberg (1923-2010)” on Don Giovanni Records, plus a deluxe vinyl reissue of the 2005 Rough Trade album “Jeffrey & Jack Lewis: City & Eastern Songs.” In March 2018 Jeffrey Lewis & Los Bolts recorded a brand new full-length original album in Nashville with producer Roger Moutenot (Yo La Tengo), with title and release date tba!
