They’ve got it all: ‘70s attitude a-la New York Dolls, ‘80s fashion sense a-la Motley Crue and that stadium rock sound resounding all over the ‘90s thanks to the likes of Pearl Jam and Soundgarden, all wrapped together in a twister of energy ready to conquer today’s rock’n’roll scene.
Hailing from Milton Keynes, Lionsex are Jef Leppard (Vocals), Jakk Vanity (Guitar), JJ Lyons (Guitar), Davy Lyonz (Bass) and Matt Von Kouga (Drums). They compare themselves to Marmite – you either love them or hate them – and could tell you everything about eyeliner and Leather, but – as Nikki Sixx would say – that doesn’t mean they can’t kick your ass, and for sure their music will do just that. They cite among their influences Def Leppard, Maiden, Deep Purple, Motorhead, the Stones and the Pistols, for that typical, classic, Jagger/Rotten-esque lip curling dirty British rock’n’roll flavour.
LionSex have been taking their decadent rock ‘n’ roll across the UK and beyond, building a growing fan base thanks to their unforgettable live shows and their down-to-Earth, fun loving attitude. Unafraid to mesh their Seattle sound with Sunset Strip make-up and hairdos, Leppard & Co. are ready to be crowned Kings of the jungle by sticking to play what they like and being who they are, no boundaries.
