Once there was a band called the Gories, and there was a guy called Hasil Adkins, as well as a dude named Tav Falco, and they played like maniacs. If they weren’t sweating blood, it was only because someone else bled on them first. That’s what Death Hymn Number 9 do—punk stomp written and played by feral animals who don’t care about thumbs and fingers because they have paws and claws. Bonus: garage-monster King Louie just got added to this bill, and he makes the kind of Real Kids-style bubble grit that Burger Records uses to stay alive. So you got a family on Thanksgiving? No, this is your family now.
