HIP PRIESTS, THE: Those Fuckin’ Boys—A Decade of Disdain: CD

Holy fucking tear-my-face-off awesome! I’ve never heard Nottingham’s the Hip Priests before this graced my mailbox, but I’m completely sold. This is a CD of the band’s singles from the last ten years, and not one of the twenty-seven songs left me disappointed. It’s seventy-six minutes of high-octane punk with hints of barroom rock the likes of the B-Movie Rats, but the lyrics throw in a heavy dose of Catholic debauchery. Fantastic. –The Lord Kveldulfr (Ghost Highway)
