The Lovesores / Press

“As a huge fan of Flipside era punk socal punk, The Humpers were a huge band on favorites list and still are.So whenever the voice of The Humpers Scott "Deluxe" Drake has something new he's putting out I wanna hear it. The Lovesores based out of Portland Oregon have Mr.Drake kickin it on vox,along with Alex Fast, Eric Bennes, Jeff Fieldhouse,and Adam Kattau providing the face punch rock n roll.”

“This jagged gem sounds like Johnny Thunders up and resurrected himself long enough to commit the songs in his mouldering head to tape before dropping the lid to his pine box once more. Focke-Wulf vs. Spitfire is four songs you can set on repeat for a week before you might get tired of ‘em and then in three more days, you’ll get that itch in your brain. Like a drip in the back of your ear. And it’s ok. Admit it to yourself, the Lovesores will ease that ache”

“Portland's Lovesores - whom we haven't heard from since around this time last year - are back and killing it as always! Focke-Wulf Vs. Spitfire, out on Germany's Hound Gawd! Records, is the band's second ten-inch EP. That's a very underrated format, don't you think? Perhaps the only thing cooler than ten-inch vinyl is Scott "Deluxe" Drake himself - who continues to lead the greatest punk rock n' roll band on the planet. Lovesores welcome new guitarist Saul Koll and do not miss a beat - continuing to power out sweaty, high-energy rock n' roll with the snarl and sleaze of '70s punk”

“Did you ever own any of those three dollar Punk-o-Rama compilations? Remember the Humpers’ “Mutate With Me” and “Steel Toed Sneakers”? If you dug it, you’re in luck. Singer Scott Drake is back, this time fronting for The Lovesores. These guys bring all of the fun and fury of nineties-era garage-punk back from the grave (trust me, it was dead), playing a slew of songs that make you feel like driving fast with the windows open, seats jammed with buddies who are on the lookout for some trouble. Relatively new on the scene, the band has been playing up and down the I-5 strip and building its name throughout the region as an up-and-coming group to keep an eye on. ”

““Rock 'n Roll: The most brutal, ugly, desperate, vicious form of expression it has been my misfortune to hear. ””

Frank Sinatra - Brainy Quotes

““Scott is one of the most underrated front men living today, or in the past 20 years for that matter. All these young bands come and go, but Scott has stayed true and consistent throughout.””

Scottie Diablo - MTV

“Scott “Deluxe” Drake has been in many bands in his almost 25 year career, most notably Los Angeles’ the Humpers, who released six albums and a slew of EPs over the course of 10 years. He’s showing no sign of slowing down either!”

“I had heard that Scott Drake, one time singer of the Humpers (“Mutate With Me”), was fronting a new band called the Lovesores. Inside the Knife Shop, Scott Drake was racing back and forth across the room, jumping from the stage, howling in his distinctly recognizable tone. The Lovesores bring back that neo-garage-punk sound that, for a large part due to Drake and the Humpers’ contribution, took the West Coast by storm in the early 90’s. ”
