If Sheena is a punk rocker, then Cheena is her cool older sister. Â When Sheena was just a kid, she could hear Cheena blasting The New York Dolls in her bedroom. Â Posters of The Stooges, T. Rex and Hawkwind adorned Cheena’sÂ walls, and even though Sheena didn’t understand it all just yet…she knew it sounded better than her David Cassidy 8-tracks.
Sacred Bones Records’ newest inductee is Cheena, a New York-based AND inspired band with a penchant for the sounds creeping out of East Village’s sewers before there was a name for it yet. Â As soon as the first deep-fried, crackling guitar riff hits your eardrums onÂ Did I Tell You Last Night?, you’ll know where they’re coming from. Â It’s lip-snarling, cheeky and androgynous, and it’ll stick its tongue down your throat just as fast as it’ll smash your face into the curb,Â so grab your eyeliner and your brass knuckles. Â It’s gonna be a bumpy ride.
