Steve E. Nix And The Famous Lizards

Motorcade EP

    Steve E. Nix and The Famous Lizards are a new four-piece group led by guitarist/singer Steve E. Nix (from legendary Seattle punk band The Briefs). Accompanying him as The Famous Lizards are bassist Kicks (also from The Briefs), guitarist Emi Pop and drummer Miles Freeborn. The Motorcade EP is the band’s debut release. Available on a limited edition black vinyl 7”, it features four killer pop-punk tracks, just what you’d expect from the prolific pen of Steve E. Nix. “I’m a punk rocker who loves guitars and interesting songs. I really like The Godfathers” says Steve. Steve has been putting out quality underground music since 2000 when The Briefs released their first single ‘Poor And Weird’. After four albums, a slew of singles and relentless touring, The Briefs took a well-earned hiatus. Never one to stay still for long Steve almost immediately formed and fronted The Cute Lepers. With Briefs’ bassist Kicks on board and a rotating cast of drummers, guitarists and back-up singers The Cute Lepers continued to tour across the US and Europe and released three albums, all on Damaged Goods Records, along with a bunch of 7” singles. In 2014 The Briefs started touring again and also began work on an album, Platinum Rats, which was eventually released by Damaged Goods Records in 2019.

    The Nix

    Sausage Studio Sessions

      The Nix is a new project from Nick McCarthy (ex Franz Ferdinand) and Seb Kellig.

      Nick McCarthy says of the album, which features Laetitia Sadier, KT Tunstall and Basement Jaxx vocalist Vula Malinga:

      "This is an album I always had in mind to record after leaving Franz Ferdinand. I wanted to make something that felt at the same time like a farewell and a new start party incorporating all the amazing musicians and people I’ve met around the world.

      I wanted the record to have the same ethos as the parties I used to organise growing up in Munich and Glasgow, so with this in mind myself and Seb Kellig, one of my best friends and a great musician and producer, set up Sausage Studios in Hackney Lane

      Our studio is open 24 hours, musicians and singers would show up and each song was written collectively and very spontaneously with the artists and the whole record was recorded with a backing band, Motown style on party nights. Seb worked his dub production magic and ‘boom’ the record was finished.

      Like so many things in my life, it all started out as a protest record. There are definitely still some arseholes out there who need to be stopped but now the virus has hit. Like any other real party, we’re all in this together. And we’ll get over this together."
