  •  BAND: SIT N SPIN

      Sit N Spin
    Here comes the spun

    Sit N Spin is a four-woman band that started out in New Brunswick, N.J., with its own crunchily melodic sound and a special devotion to a certain Who album.

    If The Who's "My Generation" is one of your favorite albums, and you know that the chances of seeing The Who perform it in its entirety are slim to nil, then treat yourself to checking out Sit N Spin as they perform all the songs from that landmark album this Sunday (Dec. 16, 2001) at Arlene Grocery.

    Sit N Spin is a four-woman garage pop band that got its start in New Brunswick, N.J., where there was a good venue, a good record store and a college radio station to nurse their nascent rock ideas. Crisply melding a sense of fun with focus, they put forth pop with edge and substance, deftly commingling crunch and melody.

    Their current lineup consists of Monica "Mony" Falcone on guitar and vocals, Maria "Poot" McKenna on drums/ vocals, Monica "Mimi" Vincent (whom you may remember from her '90s band Our American Cousins) on bass/vocals and band founder Heidi "Heidi" Lieb on guitar and lead vocals. They've toured the U.S., Canada and Europe and have played with the likes of the Kinks' Dave Davies, Link Wray, Alex Chilton and Ween and have a new CD on Cargo Music called "Enjoy The Ride."
