It's difficult to define the band's genre Lead Pipe Cinch.
In fact, LPC members have even described themselves at times as originators of a new musical genre:
due to the ska/punk, Latin and spaghetti-western
influences evidenced in their tunes.
Their new self-titled CD was recorded and produced
by Lenny Post at Hickory St. Studio in Blauvelt, N.Y.
One editor quotes:
"The NYC-based band has a sound that can only be
described as original and guitar driven, since the
sheer variety of styles utilized is mind-boggling.
Think Blondie meets Clapton, Joan Jett meets Allman
Brothers or even Spiderman meets Santana."
- SARAH WILLARD, EVENT MAGAZINE (SEP 24, 2008)
