The Cripplers were one of the finest, trashiest garage/punk/rock'n'roll bands to ever come out of the Midwest. Originally from Columbia, Missouri, the band relocated to St. Louis in the late 1990s. Their debut LP "One More for the Bad Guys" was released on the popular garage/retro rock label Dionysus Records in 2001. The Cripplers played what was thought to be their final live gig in early 2006; Jeff Sigmon went on the form The Kings of Pop while Tim Hopmeier joined the lineups of Long John Thomas and the Duffs and Chief. In late 2007, the band reformed for a shortened set at the Show-Me Blowout.
