Join us for another edition of the Indie Cafe with Spencer Drate  with special cohost Jimmy McElligott!Steve Conte may be best known as the guitarist with New York Dolls, Willy DeVille, Michael Monroe and Company Of Wolves - or perhaps as the singer with Paul Simon, Yoko Kanno, Crown Jewels and The Contes. The bottom line is, Conte is no slouch - as a musician or a rock & roller. Shortly after his band "Steve Conte & The Crazy Truth" released their critically acclaimed debut album Conte went on tour in the USA and Europe, sharing stages with artists like Nashville P*ssy, Urban Voodoo Machine & Flamenco guitar legend Raimundo Amador. Working between records & tours as lead guitarist/backing singer and co-songwriter with the legendary New York Dolls, Conte produced his band's debut, a scorching 11 song rock & roll disc called simply "STEVE CONTE & THE CRAZY TRUTH" which features a guest performance by Dolls front man David Johansen on harmonica.

He is currently working on his first solo project, The Steve Conte NYC Album featuring members of Foo Fighters, The Wildhearts, New York Dolls, Ryan Adams & The Cardinals, Hanoi Rocks, Georgia Satellites, Alice Cooper, Mink DeVille, Hellacopters, The Urban Voodoo Machine, Mott The Hoople, Backyard Babies, The Wallflowers, Company Of Wolves, Southside Johnny & The Asbury Jukes, Ian Hunter, John Mellencamp, Bruce Springsteen and Patti Smith.
