Flip Tops/Yokohama Hooks- Split 7" ~RIP OFF RECORDS!

$ 5.99

Flip Tops/Yokohama Hooks- Split 7".  I had thought the Flip Tops were defunct along with the other 95% of the Rip Off roster, but here they are with some new vinyl. "Sick Dirty Mind" blasts the doors right off in true Flip Tops fury and than they simmer to a mid-tempo ripper on "Medication". Good enough that I spun the first tune a more couple times in a whim of Rip Off Records nostalgia before flipping it. Yokohama Hooks who were a real surprise to me on the flip. They play to a super cool sounding Au Pairs-esque minimal post-punk sounding groove. "Panic" and "James Yer Out" are both solid tunes with sharp guitar lines and driving bass/drum rhythms.  And the vocals are done well from a girl with a unique accent that matches up to the music really well.  A great single and the Yokohama Hooks really make this thing worth checking out!
