Cretin Stompers

As discussed, former Reatards/Wavves member Billy Hayes, current Wavves member Alex Gates, and R. Stevie Moore collaborator BIG MUFF have formed the new garage rock trio Cretin Stompers. The band have since signed to HoZac Records (once home to Black Lips and Dum Dum Girls), who will release their debut LP, Looking Forward To Being Attacked, this fall/winter. The psychedelic video for the first single, "Eye of the Storm," makes its premiere in this post. Check it out, along with the album artwork (which the band say was "contributed personally" by William Eggleston, whose work has graced the covers of Big Star's Radio City and Jimmy Eat World's Bleed American) and tracklist, below.

The band don't have a tour scheduled yet, but Alex will be in NYC soon when Wavves' tour with King Tuff and Jacuzzi Boys hits Irving Plaza on October 3. Tickets for that show are still available.

Video, artwork, and tracklist, below...

All because Nathan Williams wouldn't let them in the band. Hey, gotta get songwriting credits somewhere I suppose! (even if nobody's gonna buy your fucking music!)

Are Waaves the left over members of Jay Reatards band? Or is that another band?

2:11 he sucked at playing the drums, which it turns out was his job (not babbling into the microphone about how stoned he was, although he did excel at that)

I think you sound pretty good Oh Yea! People like to sing along, Oh Yea! Please post where you're going to be playing both in NYC area & Out of Town. If you very need a Farm for a location shoot look @ Hi-Brow Horse Farm Upstate NY near Bethel Woods, NY where Woodstock Festival was. Regards. [Posted not by, Ball-less SB called Anonymous.

Billy was in Jay Reatard's band not The Reatards. And he's in the Barbaras, one of the greatest bands of the 22nd century

Despite whatever derision people like to believe about the word "hipster" and its application to this band, it ultimately means nothing if you find enjoyment in the music. The word has become a catch-all for anything someone might not like. This song is hella catchy, end of story. It doesn't need to aspire to be anything more than what Wavves set out for it to be. Not to mention, this will always remind me of "I Just Want My Pants Back," which was a show at least 2-3 years ahead of its time, with some of the wittiest banter I've heard in ages. It's a shame it didn't last more than a season. It did a great job at pointing out that trends are just trends but being true to who you are is more important. This song will always remain with me for that reason.´╗┐
