about

"It's refreshing to hear a band bring a raw new energy to this garage-gothic genre, like these cool, creepy cats have with this supersonic shot that will rock your socks off...and maybe scare your pants likewise. Their bare bones, hard-driving musical prowess is matched by their B-movie savvy with such tantalizing tunes as "Bad Girls Go to Hell" (inspired by sexploitation pioneer Doris Wishman) and "Vampire Lezbos". Other standouts include the title track, pure punk exotica, and the beatnik-bongo instrumental "Whiplash". Their take-no-prisoners cover of "Tainted Love" is downright twisted. This CD also has the coolest (if raunchiest) cover in many a moon, front and back, thanks to the participation of the vampy-campy Voodoo Dollz, making it an essential addition to any haunted hipster's collection." - Port Halcyon
