The Funs - Nitetrotter Session

"All you want to do is bring me down," sings The Funs male half Phillip Lesicko. This band does everything but bring me down though. Crunchy driving guitar backed with beat bopping drums with some 80's punk vocals and you have a nasty mix that is The Funs. Even more interesting his how the duo switch from drums and guitar. The guitar reminds me of a sped up Joy Division. Resident Chicago rockers create the boy girl duo of The Funs. Lesicko also runs his own label called Manic Static. Catch The Funs playing around town and really enjoy these tunes.
