The Hip Priests “Black Denim Blitz”

on

HipPriestsI think the last time I’ve heard a band using sirens as an intro was on the first TOWERS OF LONDON album! Well, The HIP PRIESTS hail from the UK too and also seem to have decided to carry the torch of sex, drinks and rock’n’roll come hell or high water. Musicwise, they are more into high-energy rock’n’roll/Scandinavian punk’n’roll, sometimes evoking early HELLACOPTERS/TURBONEGRO (“Motherfucker Superior”, “Flat Out ‘N’ Fucked Up”) ; names like ELECTRIC FRANKENSTEIN or GLUECIFER also logically come to mind while listening to these 13 amphetamine injected songs. A song like “Good Things Come To Those Who Hate” makes me think of Australian punk rock’n’roller SIMON CHAINSAW or American/German action rock warriors DUMBELL, and “20,000 Watts Of Lust” sounds like it was written for a jam with NASHVILLE PUSSY.
These guys seem to be quite active since they released a total of five 7″s last year (including a split with The DWARVES), and “Black Denim Blitz” is actually their third album!
This kind of rock’n’roll has always been more of a “live” one to me, but songs like “Instant Delinquent” or “Treat Me Like Dirt” show that it can sound as good on record.
Praying to the Saints of Excess, these Black Denim Demons probably have full support from Turbojugend worldwide already, and will probably rock your town sooner or later, get ready!… /Laurent C.
