The songs are moody, edgy, witty and sometimes even charmingly sassy. Where current rock acts rely on volume live, the LustKillers are more lured by improv.Adding yet to their mystery is why a band, unordinarily attractive by today's standards, has chosen to perform on only the darkest of dimly lit stages.Preaching the BlankGeneration/PostPunk Rock n Roll Gospel.
LustKillers features Adam Becvare, Lead Vocalist/Guitarist for LORDS OF THE NEW CHURCH 2003 Reformation.
A contributing member of such notable acts as The Heartdrops (NYC), American Heartbreak (SF), and The Black Halos, Adam Becvare has lived and died across North America to tour the earth, all the while revisiting the self indulgence of his own band The LustKillers.
As the frontman and guitarist for LK, Becvare revels in it's revolving cast of rogue friends and players stating,
"If all we leave this place with is memories, I'm filling mine with the best I can find."
The LustKillers songs stand as a testament to Becvare's influences and Rock 'n Roll life story.
Becvare moved to Hollywood at age 18 only to lose it all by 21 in Chicago.
"Everyone hears something different in The Lustkillers. Familiar but fresh, it’s really just Rock ’n Roll and that’s all the punks were trying to recreate in ’77. Everyone’s too fragile and suspicious now. The Lustkillers aren't afraid to be serious while letting go. It’s about being yourself, honouring your heroes and spreading that Blank Generation/Post Punk Gospel."
-Giselle Harvard (Harvard Journal of Rock)
The LustKillers songs are edgy, moody, witty and sometimes even charmingly sassy.
...Fast ‘n Deadly like The Damned,
...Cool ’n Creepy like The Cramps,
...Dark ‘n Lovely not unlike.... The Lords??
In 2003, a series of unreleased LK recordings The Black Sugar Sessions began circulating and Becvare was enlisted by founding members Brian James (The Damned) and Dave Tregunna (Sham69) to front their Lords of the New Church Reformation across Europe.

"Although, No One can ever replace Stiv Bators, for me this is a great honour to serve justice for a band I owe so much of my youth to." Lust n Daggers, Adam Becvare

Not afraid to get serious.
Not afraid of fun.

Damned, Dead Boys, Cramps, Lords of the New Church all showed us what rock n roll should do.
the end result is a rock n' roll statement not unlike Lou Reed, Iggy Pop, Jim Carroll, Joe Jackson and other dark rock storytellers of that era.
The LUSTKILLERS are often compared to DEADBOYS, JOHNNY THUNDERS, THE JAM, etc
