Podcast: Juicy Newt

By Jonathan McNamara

If you thought Phoenix rockers Juicy Newt gleaned their name from Juicy Newton, you'd be wrong. The name has nothing to do with the Grammy award-winning singer and guitar player. This band name has "a long and not very lady like story" says Juicy Newt drummer Sarah Bingham.

"Suffice it to say Juicy Newt is a nickname for an acquaintance who was very friendly with the boys. She would love you dirty and long but couldn't verbalize any of it. "Newt" is how she referred to her not so private area," she said.

You can hear Juicy Newt's track "To Be So Young" right here on Up on the Sun.

To hear Juicy Newt live, check out their Hollywood Alley show (and CD release party tomorrow night or catch them at The Ruby Room on August 23.
