THE STREETWALKIN' CHEETAHS
“The Streetwalkin Cheetahs will kick your ass and you will like it! Four stars."
- Rolling Stone
“The Cheetahs [are] a popular indie touring band and have developed a reputation for their ferocious live show.”
- MTV News
“Is there a better punk rock band than the Streetwalkin' Cheetahs? Is there a better rock & roll band than the Cheetahs? Is there a better band, period? Maybe, but they ain't anywhere on the music industry radar.”
- Austin Chronicle
“The Streetwalkin' Cheetahs operate with the sort of retro-hyperactive rock bravado that always makes for a lovely social occasion…Bombastic, brash and endlessly entertaining, this is a rock-and-roll bandwagon with breadth and girth you couldn't possibly anticipate.”
- Alternative Press
"I think the MC5 might be long gone, but the spirit is reborn in the Streetwalkin' Cheetahs. I'm passing the torch to them.”
- Wayne Kramer, MC5
"The Streetwalkin Cheetahs will get you laid. They are the best band I've seen in the last ten years.”
- Legs McNeil, Please Kill Me
After 12 years of hibernation, legendary Los Angeles rawk ‘n’ roll firebrands The Streetwalkin Cheetahs have reunited in 2013 to hit the road and take their beer-soaked, fist-pumpin’ hard rockin’ action to the people. Lead by founding members Frank Meyer (vocals, guitar), Dino Everett (bass), Mike Sessa (drums) and new guitarist Bruce Duff (ADZ, 45 Grave, Jeff Dahl), The Streetwalkin Cheetahs will be touring for the first time since their 2002 breakup, playing songs off their heralded albums Live on KXLU, Waiting For the Death of My Generation, Maximum Overdrive, Red Tape Diaries, and more.
Back in the day, the band toured the world, recorded over 10 albums for iconic indie labels such as Triple XXX and Bomp!/Alive, appeared on over 100 compilations, soundtracks and tribute albums, and were critical darlings, receiving rave press in Rolling Stone, Spin, Alternative Press, Flipside, LA Weekly, and all the hip ‘zines and weeklies. Along the way, they scooped up a slew of New Times awards, collaborated with punk legends such as Wayne Kramer (MC5), Cherie Currie (The Runaways), Sylvain Sylvain (New York Dolls), Jimmy Zero (Dead Boys) and Deniz Tek (Radio Birdman), and shared stages with such acts as The White Stripes, Queens of the Stone Age, Turbonegro, Supersuckers, Nashville Pussy, Reverend Horton Heat, Fishbone, Fear, John Frusciante, and countless others. And right before his untimely passing, Joey Ramone declared them his favorite band…ironic, considering a few years later Cheetahs frontman Meyer co-wrote the book On the Road with the Ramones.
In 2013/14 The Streetwalkin Cheetahs will bring back their sweat-drenched, high energy rock ‘n’ roll attack back to the stage to defend your right to rock. Be there.
