Swingin’ Bitch - Swingin’ Bitch album review

The best Sleaze you can get this month

Cover art for Swingin’ Bitch - Swingin’ Bitch album

Remember back in ’83 when Tom Warrior played his Venom 45s at 33rpm and invented Hellhammer after hearing the Satanic sludge that oozed out of the speakers? I think these dudes did the same thing with their Screamin’ Jay Hawkins singles. This is an incredible display of doomy teenage dirtbag puke-blooze. Blood Weep is a fucking masterpiece.

Came from the sky like a 747. Classic Rock’s least-reputable byline-grabber since 2003. Several decades deep into the music industry. Got fired from an early incarnation of Anal C**t after one show. 30 years later, got fired from the New York Times after one week. Likes rock and hates everything else. Still believes in Zodiac Mindwarp and the Love Reaction, against all better judgment.
