Mean Poppa Lean are a four-piece funk, soul and R n B based rock band who aim to re-invent all four genres and more at the same time. Recent comparisons have been made to The Kooks (specifically that they sound nothing like them and are far better) by none other than digital radio station TalkSport! The band have been touring their sensational live show across the country's sweatiest venues for two years now, and are beginning to resemble a very well-oiled but volatile machine, or possibly a beautiful but dangerous panther. Hundreds; nay, thousands have already registered their immense approval and nearly all of those who see the band are blown away, not hesitating to dub them the world's best live band. Here's a quote from one thrilled gig-goer: "I am blown away. I won't hesitate to dub them the world's best live band." -Sheryl Crow, Chorley, Lancs Mean Poppa Lean have recently been offered a publishing contract by Attagirls (formed of executives from Fairwood Publishing/Opal Management) and Bucks Music. With this sort of exposure, along with record labels and producers that are lined up, the band intends to launch a full attack on the music scene at large and give their skimpy costumes, choreographed dance moves and dirty, greasy pop-funk the exposure it needs and deserves.
