LR CockLorgeB 100115-094325

Cock Lorge Band is back and he’s now in The Leading Role. An artist Indie911.com describes as “A pornographic Neil Young with heart and hilarity.” Cock Lorge has spent his career perfecting an unlikely combination of sexually explicit lyrics, heartfelt folk rock, and pop grandstanding.” Simultaneously skewering elements of romantic pop music while remaining endearing, imaginative, and catchy as all hell. He’s the bastard cousin of Ween and Tenacious D who grew up worshiping Dylan rather than Dio.

The Leading Role is the follow-up to 2008’s Rise, that which featured appearances by The War Eagles, reggae legend Gregory Isaacs, Langhorne Slim and Locksley. The album was produced by Sammy Oatts (Kiss Kiss), Tony Maimone (Pere Ubu, Frank Black, etc) and Cock Lorge.

For The Leading Role Cock Lorge found like-minded allies and developed the Cock Lorge Band, a group of talented musicians who share an equal love for stereo subversion. Joining Cock Lorge are Craig Bauer (Guitar), Georgia Haege (Vocals), Daniel Muhlenberg (Drums), Sammy Oatts (Bass, Horns) and Herbie Nickles (Keyboards). Guest musicians include Paul Defiglia (The War Eagles), Kiku Enomoto (The Roots, Jay-Z), and James Levy (LEVY).

Cock Lorge Band appears monthly as part of the “Thank Cock It’s Friday” variety show, which takes place on the first Friday of each month at Pianos in New York City. The band’s next show is February 5th.

“Folk hasn’t been this fun since Dylan went electric.” – PENTHOUSE

“Ween’s sense of ironic juxtaposition…threading their lovingly rehashed lowbrow humor with A-plus arrangements that impress with both their simplicity and their sheer addictiveness. These guys aren’t even serious about trying to make you laugh; the only thing they care about is getting a chord progression stuck in your head for weeks.” – SPLENDID

“Smart enough to not take himself seriously in the least, and instead devotes his material to poking fun at overheated pop metaphors and dick-swinging attitudes in general…His songs are also insidiously catchy, so be prepared to explain to your co-workers why you’ve been singing ‘Cock in the Pussy’ under your breath for the entire day.” – SLEAZEGRINDER

“Cock In The Pussy” is one of the 100 best songs of 2004 – BLENDER

“If you want to see the “Fuck Me, I’m Sensitive” school of balladeers torpedoed, you should dial up Cock Lorge’s “Cock in the Pussy,” which would be vile if it didn’t function as a giant wink/sneer at songs like “Your Body Is a Wonderland.” It’s affectingly hushed, gently strummed, deeply felt—it just so happens that the refrain goes, “My cock’s in your pussy, my cock’s in your pussy, baby.” (There’s also a killer synthesized steel-drum solo.)” – BROWBEAT / SLATE

“If you have not had the pleasure, and I do mean PLEAS-URE of listening to the release I WANT YOU from Cock Lorge, well you just haven’t experienced true sex, music and rock n roll… Cock Lorge is stylistic and on the cusp of something big… its easy to find yourself walking around singing the songs (and wanting sex!) because they are so ferociously likable, memorable and aggressively touching…this is a MUST HAVE in your CD collection.” – DIG THIS REAL
