JEFFREY LEWIS & THE JUNKYARD  (new york city, usa)
jeffrey lewis was raised in new york city and is a maker of comic books, tragi-comic folk narratives, and lysergic garage rock. with brother jack on bass and david beauchamp on drums, the jeffrey lewis band mixes 60s acoustic psychedelia like pearls before swine with the experimental art-punk of the fall and the urban lyricism of lou reed, sounding a bit like if woody guthrie fronted sonic youth. live shows also incorporate "low budget videos", jeff’s large illustrations displayed to accompany certain songs.
