Hip Priests/Billy Hopeless- Split 7". Fist up is Billy Hopeless, formerly of the amazing Black Halos. Billy has been writing the best punk songs for 20+ years now! Its wild! When I first threw this on my jaw drops as its without a doubt the heaviest shit Billy has ever done. “Gutterball” suggests that the Black Halos’ frontman never needed punk to develop much beyond the Dead Boys. He makes a convincing argument with as snarling, drawling, mostly incomprehensible vocals about being “down in the gutter” rip along over Cheetah Chrome–style guitars, climaxing in a near-perfect solo from Black Halos cofounder Rich Jones. On the flip the Hip Priests deliver again. The ‘Priests are an awesome, gloriously tangled mess of Rock N Roll. I had high hopes for their side as their last LP was a killer and definatley don’t disappont. "Wired Amped Skulled" is so badass and the recording sounds fucking unbelievable. Fans of Zeke, Candy Snatchers, Puffball and the Hookers nead to hear this beast. ONLY 500 COPIES OF THIS WERE PRESSED ON SPLIT BLACK WHITE MARBLE WAX!
