Steve Conte & His Band The Crazy Truth To Play The Album, STEVE CONTE & THE CRAZY TRUTH In It’s Entirety!
Steve Conte & his band The Crazy Truth will play the album, STEVE CONTE & THE CRAZY TRUTH in it’s entirety!
FRIDAY SEPTEMBER 13th, 2019
@ LOLA (formerly CONEY ISLAND BABY) 169 Ave A, NYC
The show will be in honor of the 10th ANNIVERSARY of the album’s release. The setlist will be rounded out with songs Steve has covered and released on his INTERNATIONAL COVER-UP album as well as a few surprises. (Ticket link below.)
The Steve Conte & The Crazy Truth album was the first studio album released under Steve’s own name on a major label imprint, VARESE SARABANDE (UNIVERSAL MUSIC) and was the first to feature a true “band” backing Steve as a lead vocalist; Phil Stewart on drums and Lee Kostrinsky AKA “Leeko” on bass. It also marked Conte’s return to the raw rock & roll of his youth after a number of more introspective, singer-songwriter albums with his brother John, as the Crown Jewels and The Contes.
Released hot on the heels of ONE DAY IT WILL PLEASE US TO REMEMBER EVEN THIS, the 2006 comeback album by the legendary New York Dolls (of which Steve was a part of as a songwriter, guitarist and backing vocalist), STEVE CONTE & THE CRAZY TRUTH is a NYC-style garage/punk/ rock record with songs that reek of the dirty streets; This Is The End, Gypsy Cab, Texas T, The Good Are Odd, Get Off, The Truth Ain’t Pretty, Her Highness, Busload Of Hope, Strumpet-Hearted Monkey Girl, Indie Girl and Junk Planet.
“8 Stars Out Of 10. Music to instigate and soundtrack fighting, fucking, speeding, hurling abuse and waking up buck-naked in a stranger’s bathroom. This might even be better than the last Dolls album”
— Classic Rock Magazine (UK)
“There is very little genuine rock and roll out there at the moment – but Steve Conte has hit the nail on the head with this one!”
— Steve Lillywhite, Producer (Rolling Stones, Johnny Thunders, XTC, U2)
Don’t miss this very special show FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 13th at LOLA (formerly Coney Island Baby) in honor of the 10th ANNIVERSARY of the album’s release.
