Jeffrey Lewis & Los Bolts is the latest incarnation of cult indie-rocker/songwriter Jeffrey Lewis.  Called bizarre but brilliant by Uncut and weird but also downright inspiring by Rolling Stone, Jeffrey began recording homemade cassettes at home in New York City in 1998.  In 2001 he was spotted by Rough Trade Records (label of the Smiths, the Strokes, Belle & Sebastian, etc.) who have since released seven Jeffrey Lewis albums, alongside Jeffreys self-releases and side-projects (on labels like Don Giovanni and K Records). Lewis and his bandmates have toured regularly for years, performing an idiosyncratic blend of garage rock and contemplative folk, developing a devoted following from Los Angeles to London, Melbourne to Moscow, Chicago to Shanghai and beyond, a career that has also sometimes included sharing bills and tours with The Vaselines, The Fall, Stephen Malkmus & The Jicks, Roky Erickson, The Mountain Goats, Daniel Johnston, Pulp and other luminaries.Jeffrey is also a comic book writer/artist and includes his own illustrations and projections in concert to accompany certain songs (like "The History of Communism" or "The Creeping Brain").Jeffrey Lewis & Los Bolts currently features Mem (Cat Tatt, Fem Doms) Pahl on bass and Brent (Dufus, Moldy Peaches) Cole on drums. Sometimes his long-time collaborator (and brother) Jack Lewis makes a guest appearance at certain gigs, adding additional bass, keyboard, percussion, vocals and other sounds.Jeffrey has self-published twelve issues of his comic book series Fuff, and Jeffrey's writing, illustrations, comic books and music have been featured by NPR, The History Channel, The New York Times and other media outlets great and small.
