A lofi Clean-sounding trio of native West Coasters weened on Dead Moon, the Wipers and the Neo Boys. Each member brings a distinct influence to the group; 60s garage rock and contemporary bands from Alex, whole-hearted rock and roll and classic song-craft from Lawton and DIY pop and post-punk from Raf (of the Polyps / Eggy Records & Tapes).

Been a band for 10 years still nobody knows what to make of Lame Drivers: “a young Replacements or Guided By Voices?“ “like the Buzzcocks getting a reacharound from the Descendents?” Pell Mell? Jesus & Mary Chain? Memb Home Blitz? Who cares?! “Filled with hooks, it’s got a punk influence, power-pop influence, indie rock, psychedelic, all my favorite rock elements.“
