Listeners to X107.5’s The X-Effect, 10p-Midnight on Sunday nights are used to hearing Vegas artists showcased in the Local Effect. But how familiar are you with the bands themselves? Time to change all of that with the Local Effect Spotlight! Today, I’m featuring Vegas’ Leather Bound Crooks…
Made up of 2 Vegas natives and a drummer from the Bay Area, “LBC” is doing what they love with no pseudo bohemian appearance or hidden agenda seen by some panel of judges.
Originally a quartet, when the band was started in ’11, Dylan, Jawaun & Richie now have the sound they want. Rugged, Unique… Honest!
PK – Why is it better to be a band in Vegas than anywhere else?
J&D – Well Vegas is home for LBC so we don’t really know if it’s better or not… It’s the entertainment capitol of the world still right? It’s practically a city full of talent w/ a unique type of shine. We also owe it to organizations & individuals like Pauly Kover with X107.5’s Local Effect on Sunday nights that make it possible for almost anyone & everyone to be heard or made aware of.
PK – Getting some brownie points there. Thanks! ha How would you describe the sound of your band & what went into your new track “Spread the Love,” which is now available on iTunes?
J – Our sound is OUR sound. Friends & family always pull like 4 or 5 bands off the top off their head but fans really say it’s something else.
D – We’ve got a whole lot of influence & a certain rock sound to us that’s delivered in everything we do, live or recorded.
J) I would say experience and patience went into this track most. We lost 2 members during the recording process of this track. The bridge was rewritten & some guitar parts which lead to also renaming the track. The lyrics are real & hopefully I can hear some of you sing them back.
