Screamin’ Cyn Cyn and The Pons

Dressing like idiots fits these poppy punks perfectly

If you want to know what other bands think of Screamin’ Cyn Cyn and The Pons, just check the group’s MySpace page: “Your lead singer fucked up your entire set by dressing like such an idiot.” This review, from a band called President Fluid, is posted on Cyn Cyn’s site, along with pictures of the Madison foursome sporting everything from pink dresses (only one of them is female) to nautical-themed costumes (their pudgy drummer dons a vest and sailor’s hat). We’re hoping the group isn’t taking President Fluid’s words to heart, as the members’ kooky fashion sense is a perfect companion to their quirky pop punk ditties, which address important topics like setting the kitchen table, falling in love with a lesbian and slumber parties. Sounds pretty juvenile, but most of the members of Cyn Cyn are pushing 30. With lyrics like “You froze my panties / I froze your bra / Your brother went in for a Klondike bar / But I don’t think he saw,” you’ll either cringe or laugh, but with Cyn Cyn, chances are you’ll be tapping your toes all the while. Chim Charoo and the all-female rockers of Retro Spandex kick things off.
