TUTU AND THE PIRATES / HOTLIPS MESSIAH: Get Weird: Split 7” EP

Tutu And The Pirates: Two new tracks from what is arguably Chicago’s first punk band. “Debbie Debbie Debbie (and Her Prison Baby)” is the Pick to Click here, with lyrics like “got knocked up while she was locked up/it’s like immaculate conception” that would make early Sloppy Seconds envious. Hotlips Messiah: No slouches themselves, these relative new-jacks more than hold their own here, with a couple o’ fun, punchy punk ditties that fit in nicely with what their vinyl mates have laid down.
