DeadSplinter Up! All Night: It’s Hard To Be Punk While Wearing A Skirt

Apologies for being M.I.A. this past week. Work and school (I teach high school English and am taking night classes for my credential) have been obscenely overwhelming as of late. Anyway on to tonight’s band, Diet Cig!

Diet Cig is an indie rock duo from New Paltz, New York consisting of singer/guitarist Alex Luciano and drummer Noah Bowman. As students of SUNY New Paltz, Luciano met drummer Bowman at a house show in 2014 when she interrupted his former band’s set to ask for a cigarette lighter. Bowman instead gave her a bottle of wine. Luciano had never played an electric guitar before forming Diet Cig with Bowman a few months later after their house show meeting. They released and EP, Over Easy in 2015 and their first album Swear I’m Good At This in 2017. Described by the New York Times as peppy, feminist, pop punk, Diet Cig released their latest single Night Terrors on January 27th and announced a spring tour of Europe and the US.

Thank you for your continued support of DeadSplinter.



  1. …it might be hard but it’s certainly a fine & venerable tradition…even if the likes of Poly Styrene & her X-ray Spex wore pants from time to time…but I couldn’t settle on “a” tune from those ladies so I figured maybe this might be appropriate?

      • A lot of “what was that song by that band we liked” goes on in our house. As in can’t remember either name. But a few lyric snippets into Google – and it all comes rushing back.

  2. I wonder what Lesley Woods is up to these days?
    Au Pairs – Come Again

    X – Riding With Mary
    Unfortunately we know what crackpot Exene Cervenka is doing – spreading conspiracy theories.
