Control Freaks- Double Dose Of Hate 7”.  Wait, Rip Off Records honcho Greg Lowery is back with a new single from his newest band The Control Freaks? How about that! Their last single just came out and next up is this new one and it really is a ‘Double Dose Of Hate’. Sherrilynn Nelson (formerly keyboardist for The Omens) loved The Control Freaks so much that she learned guitar just so she could join the band. "Time's Up" from the last single was her Control Freaks songwriting debut. ‘Double Dose Of Hate’ opens with another song she penned called "I Hate Your Face". That's a damn fine title and sure enough the song lives up to it’s name. I can never get enough of this sort of old-style catchy punk rock, and I really dig the back-and-forth exchange between Sherrilynn and Greg. For a song about hate, those lyrics are surprisingly profound. And about 99 out of 100 humans will fully relate to that line "I'm still in love with you/But I hate your face". On the flip, "Hatelist" has a nastier edge to it and brings to mind Greg's late, great band Zodiac Killers. This one will have you shouting along in fervent dedication to everyone who's ever wronged you. The lyrics are so hilariously scathing and make you wonder who the hell pissed Greg off so much? Another winner from the Control Freaks who fit right in with Gregs musical lineage of the Rip Offs, Infections, and Zodiac Killers. Import from the UK.
