Popular music website has just posted an entertaining video interview with Batusis' frontmen Sylvain Sylvain and Cheetah Chrome. In addition to offering up plenty of music from their critically-acclaimed debut EP, the piece also features the two rock legends dishing on their pasts with the New York Dolls and the Dead Boys as well as the future of Batusis. Check it out! < oo5UqTIxiyj3fB4VJVD6laFfMGPOVnZMlE%3D>  The dynamic duo--who are backed by former Blackhearts bassist Sean Koos and drummer Lez Warner from The Cult--recently completed a 15-city east coast tour of the U.S. to resounding accolades from fans and press alike.    The Big Takeover  < oo5UqTIxiyj3fB4VJVD6laFfMGPOVnZMlE%3D>   reviewed their New York show, enthusing: "Guys like Syl Sylvain (New York Dolls) and Cheetah Chrome (Dead Boys, Rocket From The Tombs) are still playing and getting it done...all fuzztone guitar and nasty attitude."  Fans have been blowing up the band's Facebook page with comments like:  @Veronique Tucker: "I was so impressed with the 2 shows I caught in Cleveland and Erie that I have been getting everyone to listen to my iPod with the 4 songs from the EP."  @Bob Bonehead: "Catch them if you can! The DC show was great, my only regret is I could not make the Baltimore show the night before."  @Tim Stoklas: "UNBELIEVABLE, WONDERFUL SHOW!"  @Chassidy Chelsea: "I'm like a school girl, I'm so happy to get out and enjoy the music that has moved me for decades"  @Maureen Welsh: "Best show in Philadelphia! Most fun I had in a long time!!!"  Real Detroit Weekly wrote: "Batusis is the genre-warping brainchild of punk rock legends...They combine old school punk energy with surfy '60s vibes and finish it off with a nice crunch of fuzz." And summing up the enthusiastic response to the band's exciting live performances, Buzzbin proclaims: "Batusis prove punk is still alive!"  The band will be following up their successful East Coast run with a West Coast tour in October before starting work on a full-length album (of all new material) due to be released in early 2011 on Smog Veil Records. Stay tuned Bat-fans...more details will be following soon! < oo5UqTIxiyj3fB4VJVD6laFfMGPOVnZMlE%3D>
