Dirty Lenin is Sexy Party Alterna-Pop!

Biography

Dirty Lenin creates what New York’s L Magazine calls “pop songs for the wry and witty.”

Their lyrics sparkle with cheeky observations about difficult break-ups and easy hook-ups, while their music warmly wraps each idea in jangling power pop.

Together since 2003, this co-ed foursome recently released their third EP, 2% Faster. Renée’s inventive guitar and Tate’s playful keys and sultry sax are driven by Metro’s rock and roll drumming and Cosmo’s melodic bass. Renée and Tate, taking turns on lead vocals and intricate backup harmonies, create lush, hook-laden lines reminiscent of bands like Weezer, X, the B-52’s, Blondie and The New Pornographers.

Live, Dirty Lenin is sincere, sexy fun.

While on tour in California this past January, LA.com stated, "The band's energy and enthusiasm are contagious."

More recently, their hometown AM New York wrote, “This energetic crew is entertaining to watch. Their frenetic sound and amusing onstage antics certainly demand attention.”

Tate explains, "When we started we were just playing for large groups of friends. We'd have everyone come up on stage and jump around and be crazy. When people we didn't know started coming to see us play, we just kept the same attitude. Like every show is a private party."

Lyrics

Candy Boy

Written By: Dirty Lenin

I see you in the candy store, you got a sweet tooth honey.
You see me blowing bubbles, I'm blowing them big for you baby.
Look for some money in your pants, whileI do a bubble gum dance.
I can give you some of mine it's bubbalicious lime, SO -
Put out, put out, put out, put out, put out your hand!
Put out, put out, put out, put out, put out your hand.

I know that you want, you want some of my candy.
I think you're really sweet, I just might give you all of my candy.
You don't have to be coy, I know you're a little boy.
I'll tell you what I'd like, I wanna ride on your trike, SO -
Put out, put out, put out, put out your hand!
Put out, put out, put out, put out your -

Mother warned you not to eat too much candy.
Mother warned you not to eat too much candy.
Mother warned you not to eat too much...
Caaaa-aaandy! Caaaa-aaandy!
Caaaa-aaandy!Caaaa-aaandy!

Sugar, sugar, sugar, ooh I want your sugar, baby.
Lick your lollipop, you taste so sweet sugar honey!
You're my sah-weet toy, you're my candy boy.
You don't have to be shy, you're just my flavor guy.

C'mon, c'mon, c'mon, I know you got more fun dip honey.
Ooo, it feels so good, it's like pop rocks for the first time baby.
Oh candy boy, I want more, more, more.
I'm not satisfied, take me on another ride, SO -
Put out, put out, put out, put out , put out your hand!
Put out, put out, put out, put out , put out your hand.

"Gimme, gimme, gimme" - that's all you ever say to me baby.
If you say "please" you might get some more candy.
I'm not being coy, I'm getting bored with my toy.
I told you what I like, so go down to the store and treat me right! SO -
Put out, put out, put out, put out, LIKE A MAN!
Put out, put out, put out, put out, LIKE A -

Mother warned you not to eat too much candy.
Mother warned you not to eat too much candy.
Mother warned you not to eat too much...
Caaaa-aaandy! Caaaa-aaandy!
Caaaa-aaandy! Caaaa-aaandy!
