Hip Priests, The – Fulltilt Bullshit LP
Ghost Highway Recordings
From the album title, the garish bright red n black splatter vinyl to the excellent (read rude) sleeve that contains it, you can tell that the dictionary owned by Nottingham’s The Hip Priests is missing the word “subtle”. They have, however, underlined heavily the words “raw”, “catchy” and “loud” a lot though.
This is the sort of music that Iggy should still be making; it’s the direct descendent of The Stooges Raw Power, with a smidge of Stiv Bator’s Dead Boys and a healthy dose of New York Dolls. All played with the ferocity of Motorhead.
