Last year Melbourne band Cuntz toured the United States of America. They named the tour ‘Cuntz Across America’ and it involved a lot of cheap beer, a lot of yellow colored food and some killer shows with bands like the Gary Wrong Group, Pop. 1280 and GG King.
Chunklet Industries have just released Here Come the Real Boys…Live in the USA a collection of the band’s live tour recordings taken from radio station WFMU, Brooklyn’s Death By Audio, Gonerfest and the Earl in Atlanta.
Featuring classics like “Never Felt Better”and“Casual Drinker” the record captures the booziness and belligerence of a typical Cuntz show with vocalist Ben Mackie’s between song banter/baiting and blown out guitars.
The band also have an upcoming 7” on Florida label Total Punk records.
Their Melbourne buddy/roadie/tour manager Stephen Fischer who now calls New York City home snapped some quality tour moments. The band wrote the captions.
