Interview: Kenny Livingston talks pedaling a beach cruiser from LA to Washington DC

If you can think way back to a couple of weeks ago, we brought you a story about Kenny Livingston, drummer for bands like Sugarcult and Lefty, who is in the planning stages of an effort to pedal a $400 beach cruiser from Los Angeles to Washington DC. Again. Yours truly recently had the privilege of catching up with Kenny to talk about his experiences in the music industry (including his involvement in the early years of SideOneDummy Recordings), what it took to pedal from coast-to-coast last time, what he’s doing differently this time, and how the whole idea is rooted in punk rock ethos. Click here to read our interview, and check out Kenny’s website here for more info on his cause.



Sugarcult drummer riding bicycle from Los Angeles to North Carolina…again

Two years ago, Kenny Livingston, drummer for California pop punk rockers Sugarcult, pedaled his three-speed beach cruiser from Hermosa Beach, CA, to Washington DC in the name of getting people to get off the couch and to change how they view their own health and nutrition. Now he’s getting geared up (pun obviously intended) again.

Later this summer, Livingston will embark on the jaunt that he entitles “Kenny Do It?”, this time pushing his pedals from Hermosa Beach to Kitty Hawk, North Carolina. He’ll be documenting his journey and meeting up with people to inspire them to become “the good kind of crazy.”

Livingston has put up a Kickstarter page to try to make the 2012 version of Kenny Do It? a reality. It includes a video composed of daily clips from the 2010 ride. Click here to check it out.



Random Cover Song: Sugarcult – “A Hard Day’s Night” (The Beatles)

Cover songs are like a box of chocolates; you never know what you’re going to get. We here at Dying Scene love hearing punk bands do their own take on other band’s songs. Sometimes they pull off amazing interpretations of old classics, sometimes they’re not much more than humble tributes to a fellow artist, and other times they’re just downright laughable renditions of otherwise great songs. Good or bad. Intriguing or mundane. We’ll let you be the judge.

Today, it’s occasionally-reunited California band Sugarcult covering one The Beatles’ “A Hard Days Night.” The original appears on The Beatles’ 1964 classic album of the same title, while the Sugarcult version appears on the band’s 2005 “A Hard Days Night” EP, which was released only in Japan. Check out the cover of “A Hard Days Night” and compare it to the original here.
