leg up cut up is a band from the quad cities of illinois.. our music has been described by William Townsend Harris as "in your face, agressive post-vulcan grunge". we're not tough.
Why this name?
none of use seem to know, it just sounded cool.
Do you play live?
yes, we play house shows and other small venues suck as legion halls.
How, do you think, does the internet (or mp3) change the music industry?
it has helped.. artists can now spread their music and get their word out faster and cheaper than ever before. its amazing.
Would you sign a record contract with a major label?
the base for leg up cut up was founded in the summer of 2003, when scottie and carl began jamming and writing songs together. back then we were known as "f*** everything that isn't fun". we just wanted to cut the sh*** and make fun music. there were a few drummers on and off, most notably jake schulte, who played with us for a couple months around the time we changed our name to leg up cut up, and played with us for our first show (october 2004). shortly after that show jake got really busy with work and had to quit the band. in november we found another drummer. his name was dylan and we knew he was the perfect dude for the job.
we are influenced by: born against, (young) pioneers, the breeders, sonic youth, nirvana, mudhoney, melvins, liars, xbxrx, and more..
