About Us

The Sleazoids are a blistering garage punk 3-piece band from Sheffield, and are a bit like if The Cramps and The Fall merged with Bikini Kill! The band features Missy Tassles on trash guitar and vocals, Paul Dorrington on hi-tension bass and vocals with Mitch Genner beating primitive rhythms. We love playing loud music, drinking beer, and having a good time. We try to keep all our songs as short and fast as possible.

Our debut album ‘INSANE ESCAPADES’ is OUT NOW, and has been reviewed by Shindig magazine (issue #84, Oct 2018) as:
“a whole heap o’ terror-ific rockin’ sounds from the 50s, 60s and 70s…provocatively cool… are performed with all-out, often giddy abandon… all demonstrating some properly fine punk potential, as well as showing off a wicked sense of fun.” – SHINDIG MAGAZINE

‘INSANE ESCAPADES’, released by Thee Sheffield Phonographic Corporation is available NOW from our Bandcamp page or at gigs! We have other merch available like tshirts, badges and stickers also!

The band’s stage performances are an electrifying mix of rock solid musicianship and joyously shambolic punk attitude. A machine gun delivery of 2-minute garage punk songs are fired out in quick succession leaving audiences shell-shocked and aching for more.

Check out our gigs page for upcoming events and other pages for other cool stuff and how to contact us! You can ‘like’ us on Facebook also to stay up to date with our shenanigans!
