Stagger Lee began 2007 with a debaucherous NYE gig and have since been preparing for the release of their debut single ‘Bad Shoes’ on April 13th, with artwork fetish photos by Ben Murphy and video by the notorious 'Love Action'. The Stagger Lee sound embodies the spirit of Robert Johnson’s Devil-at-the-crossroads and Mavis Staples gospel cry with the energy and attitude of The Stooges, The Cramps and Siouxsie Sioux.
Highlights to date have included appearances with Jon Spencer Blues Xplosion, The Kills, The Duke Spirit, The Grates, Sleater Kinny and Pink Grease in the notorious White Trash club in Berlin . Stagger Lee were also invited to play at the Irish launch night of the European MySpace Festival and the Fringe Festival's beautiful Speigeltent in 2006. On Friday 13th April Stagger Lee play an in-store in Tower Records, Wicklow Street, to launch ‘Bad Shoes’ followed by an official launch party in Crawdaddy on Sat April 14th. This night will include a video premier, some beautiful dancing ladies and more dirt, sleaze and rock n roll then you can handle! They play a warm up gig on the 21st March in the Belfast Limelight as part of the Imro Showcase tour 2007 and look forward to a show in the Ballroom of Romance supporting the Drones (Australia) on 21st April.
