Named after a Spanish fairy tale, Wounded Lion are the latest addition to the In The Red stable of artists. Hailing from the East Side of Los Angeles, this quintet administers the perfect prescription for your raw pop addiction.

This new 7-inch features three heavily contagious songs--one original, "Friendly?," and two twisted covers, Wild Man Fischer's "Big Boots" and Creedence Clearwater Revival's "Bad Moon Rising." Imagine a hybrid of the Velvets, Cramps, Kiwi-pop, '70s punk and '80s post-punk and you start to get the picture...kinda. With songwriting and playing this effective, influences are secondary.

Watch for Wounded Lion's debut LP on In The Red in 2010.

"Wounded Lion's brand of charmingly timeless, lo-fi pop would fit nicely on a bill with Columbus bands like the Guinea Worms and Times New Viking.... [T]he band embodies the city's marvelously ass-backwards musical ideology, rejecting conventionally accepted aesthetics and approaches, to revel in an ecstatic indifference toward time, place, trend, and fashion. Wounded Lion's formula is relatively simple. The band writes shambling, alternately silly and poignant songs that bend and twist timeless pop hooks from the sixties onward."
