Weird Lovemakers

As much as I hate to admit it, the Weird Lovemakers were a band I took a chance on simply because of the name. I mean, how could I resist? Most of the time these gambles don't pay off, but this one was a definite score. Tucson's Weird Lovemakers play high energy, high speed songs that are short, catchy, and sometimes just downright strange. Between 1994 and 2000 these guys released 5 albums of adolescent geek rock, two of which I didn't know existed until I began researching this post. Guitarist Jason Willis and drummer Gerard Schumacher are currently keeping time with the very cool Knockout Pills. Enjoy
