Inspired by American bands such as the Ramones and the New York Dolls, the British beat boom of the sixties and Glam Rock acts like Slade and Sweet, THE LURKERS formed in West London in mid 1976 and quickly forged their own identity with their own brand of punk tunes and lyrics encompassing subjects such as social unacceptability and personal politics.

A garage punk band from London, playing 3 chord songs like their lives depend on it. Songs of love and fury, sex and hate, disgrace and drugs, Old Spice and Benylin – and they used to be such nice boys!
