Screamin’ Cyn Cyn and The Pons

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.
