Album: The Love Me Nots – Sucker
Label: Bad Reputation
Sucker (2014 Bad Reputation Records / Atomic A Go Go Records) is the latest release from Phoenix garage act The Love Me Nots. The album title is a dedication to all those poor souls who have been – or still are – suckers in love. For the first time in five years, these new recordings feature all of the original band members: Nicole Laurenne (vocals/organ), Michael Johnny Walker (guitar), Christina Nunez (bass), and Jay Lien (drums). Sucker, recorded by Bob Hoag in Phoenix and mastered by Jim Diamond in Detroit, represents a full-blown return to the raw, pounding, blues-influenced garage sound of 2007’s In Black & White and 2008’s DETROIT.
THE LOVE ME NOTS are a fuzz-and-farfisa rock n roll band. The quartet formed in Phoenix in 2006 with vocalist/organist Nicole Laurenne, guitarist Michael Johnny Walker, bassist Christina Nunez, and drummer Jay Lien. The band has released four full-length albums on its own label, Atomic A Go Go Records, all produced by Detroit’s Jim Diamond (The White Stripes, Electric Six, Dirtbombs), and have a fifth album ready for September 2014 release. Tracks are currently in regular rotation on Sirius/XM Radio and are airing on syndicated radio and television shows (Rescue Me, Fairly Legal, Being Human), more), and the band has been the subject of multiple feature stories in Rolling Stone, starred in Fender Guitar’s 2014 promo videos, charted in the CMJ Top 100, aired on an official NASCAR television ad, have appeared on notable compilations worldwide, performed live on radio stations across the United States, saw the European re-release of its entire discography plus a remix album on Bad Reputation Records (Paris), self-produced three official music videos, and have been included in many annual “Top 10” lists including The Village Voice, The Austin Chronicle, The Phoenix New Times, RockPress (Brazil), and more. Laurenne was named “Best Frontperson of 2010” by The Arizona Republic, Walker was personally featured in Fender Guitar’s video The Soul of Tone with Dweezil Zappa, and the band’s single “Demons” was awarded “Best Garage Song of 2011” by KWSS (93.9 FM Phoenix). The band has toured the United States, Canada, and Europe, and recently signed with Twisted Rico Management (Pittsburgh).
