Starting in a small basement in Richmond, VA LJ & The Sleeze is a punk rock outfit
heavily influenced by New York and LA music out of the 70s and 80s. Combining
distorted guitars, driven drums, and groovy bass lines LJ & The Sleeze have been
cultivating a sound you’ve been looking for. Max Gottesman writes all of these parts with
a fury that’ll surely have you hooked immediately.
LJ & The Sleeze’s debut LP ‘Keepin’ It Sleezy’ came out summer of 2020 turning heads
even with no live performances in sight. With marks of rock & roll, punk, and hip-hop LJ
& The Sleeze created something truly unique while still fitting into a realm of comfort.
LJ & The Sleeze’s follow up 7” ‘Put Something Sleezy Between Your Legs’ was
released early summer 2021 on Eight Ball Record$. Leaning heavily on rock & roll these
4 songs all bring something different to the table while still maintaining the raw, tongue
in cheek style Gottesman had cultivated prior.
As the world has opened back up from the pandemic LJ & The Sleeze, backed by Eli
Gray (lead guitar), Gray Stephenson (Rhythm Guitar), Caroline Hill (Bass), and Ben
Rosenstock (Drums) have been packing out venues and putting on intense in your face
performances only leaving people wanting more. LJ & The Sleeze returned to the
studio to rerecord all of the songs from Keepin’ It Sleezy and PSSBYL with the backing
band. With a tightness and power that had been unheard in prior recordings the songs
were elevated to another level. Stay Sleezy was released on cassette by Eight Ball
Record$ on 02/12/22.
After a 6 month break to get into writing and recording LJ & The Sleeze gear up to
release a new single on August 28th. Ain’t Easy Bein Sleezy will be released via Eight
Ball Record$ and will be part of a mini rock opera featuring other songs I’m Bad and
