Praised by The Guardian newspaper as “punk-art prodigies” they are proud to represent London at its best. Active, attractive and witty, they exhibit all the charms of their forebears, with the added talent of actually being able to play their instruments really rather well.
Sugar ‘n’ spite lyrics, guitars ranging from the perversely pretty to downright disembowelling........and a drummer whose dad famously told The Beatles that they’d never get anywhere with a name like that.
Currently riding on three singles released on their own label Medical Records, they have residencies at a number of top London venues including a rather notorious lap dancing club. Equally content to play to 30 or 3,000 people, THE LEECHES continue their quest to be a complete fucking nuisance.
