original sinner

well i hope the weeks worth of previewing next weeks sxsw lineup helps a few of you out with your planning. today we're turning back to my neck of the woods. co-founder of la punk legends X, Exene Cervenka, will be in denver this saturday at the Hi Dive with her backing band, the Original Sinners and in support of a new album entitled SEV7EN. as a side note, the Sinners are in fact members of the band 7 Shot Screamers, who are opening and mark a change in the line-up since the Sinners debut in 2002. Exene has partaken in several side-projects, but this one retained the interest of most X fans because it strayed the least from that bands signature sound. the new album may catch a few of those people off guard. Exene has penned the familar punk laden, sad love songs with collaborator Jason Edge, but the new Sinners line-up brings a pedigree that seemlessly meshes everything from psychobilly to glam with their own band. as a final note, it's worth mentioning that in a recent interview Exene hinted that she's working on new material with John Doe, which may or may not lead to the first proper X album in over a decade..??
