Labretta Suede & the Motel 6
Labretta Suede & the Motel 6
Formed in 2005 in Auckland, New Zealand with influences wide throughout the decades before them of damn good music.
This band brings back the true essence of roots based rock n roll, punk and rockabilly blues.

Fronted by bad girl tease Labretta Suede, with her sexy gritty performances, full frontal outfits and irresistible, irreverent, deep rich vocals that simply
undress and unleash you. while, right-hand flesh eating Johnny Moondog makes you completely unhinged with his wild tone, crazed reverb and mind bending psychedelic distortion and sneer. These two unruly and insatiable founding members are the essence behind this world traveled jungle of juju strange.

Complimented by their original New Zealand counterparts, Chris 'Bumbo' Kemp (drums) and JayL Vodanovich (bass) who kept their heads cool to lay down the slosh, so as not to drown.

This melding of nostalgic, yet originally infused swagger was at the fore front of badass rock n roll car culture, b -grade art, cinema and burlesque in their faraway shores of Aotearoa (New Zealand). However, feeling the fever to spread the disease long and far from the way down under pools of volcanic laha, hey relocated to the other side of the planet. That's right, to New York City, a place where only the sick and depraved can truly survive.

Surviving on bare bones alone on their continuing journey of rock n roll debris, struggling in a big city filled with millions seeking to find just the
right kinda strange to fit their new line-up. Cue, Max Speed $1000 on bass. A man of 50's super hero physic and proportions yet with dainty ankles for high-heel wearing and stocking steeling. However, all this mind altering swooning, would not be complete without the pounds of dirt and intangible rhythms coming from the drummer region. Take a bow, Seanzie Dirtbags.

So, the new line-up of fiends was born. A now hotter then ever *Labretta Suede and The Motel 6* have been crowd maddening, swooning and sweeping from state to state. This lingerie wearin', bone pickin', leather clad, jungle groovin' USA line-up of Labretta Suede & The Motel 6 has made the band a rock 'n' roll blitzkrieg of fierce outcasts!

This infestation simply keeps evolving to tease, titillate and leave you, well, wet with all kinds of things. They will tear you to pieces.

Check it out, it's way out!..

Known for an anything goes live show with their tightly knit fan base in tow that will dance the night away like it is their last, it is definitely one worth checking out and is a constant mention in several online "must attend show of the week" from local media sources(Dallas Observer, DC9 at night, Central Track, D magazine,, Ft worth Weekly, Fort Live). At any given one of these gatherings of music, friends, and alcohol you could witness anything from an intimate, calm set, to having band members on the ground or in the air playing their instruments while the crowd dives into the drums. It's an experience everyone should be a part of and once you have, you cannot wait for the next.

Sealion pulls influences from bands such as The Pixies and The Nerves along with various punk bands from the 70's-90's, 60's garage & surf and 50's pop into a sound all their own.
