Crybabys are ready to set to woo a new generation with their Mott The Hoople, Rolling Stones, Humble Pie, Faces inspired brand of rock 'n' roll. Formed in London in the early summer of 1990 the band quickly built a substantial live following securing a record deal with Receiver and were voted "Best New Band of 1991" by Kerrang Magazine. In 1995 Plain and Bath were chose by the living legend Ian Hunter (Mott The Hoople) to write, perform and even share vocal duties on his 1995 Dirty Laundry. In 2015 the band decide to record a new version of “Scars”, song they penned for the “Dirty Laundry” record, with Bath on main vocals and to revisit Jagger, Richards timeless classic “Tell Me”.
Lester Greenowski (Lester and the Landslide Ladies, Honest John Plain, The Crybabys) is back with two brand new songs written and recorded on the road in between tours. After almost 15 years on the scene, gigs, releases, collaborations and overall the seal of approval of both critics and audience Greenowski confirmed himself, among his generation, as one of the best in what he does: rock and roll. So if it's rock and roll what you looking for that's exactly what you’ll get with “On The Autobahn” and “Again”, the new numbers you will find on this split, get ready for a good time.
