hank wood & the hammerheads - go home

watch out....cuz if you love yer garage punk mean, loud and fucking fierce, HANK WOOD AND THE HAMMERHEADS are gonna blow you away with their debut album GO HOME (released late last year on TOXIC STATE, purveyor of all things punk rock).......

blistering noise damaged garage punk sprinkled with grime and synth, HANK WOOD AND THE HAMMERHEADS are tilted full boar towards the back catalog of Crypt Records and man oh man if they aren't close to surpassing some of the classics..........
  
GO HOME has the vitriol of the Final Solutions, the house party spirit of The Spits, the drunken high speed chase of the Motards, the three chord budget punk of Supercharger and the angsty back alley fight of the Murder City Devils.... and that's just their jumping off point..... i haven't heard garage punk this riotous and hellbent on destruction since those first Pussy Galore, Cheater Slicks, Action Swingers and Chrome Cranks lps.....  

Those who like their punk Back From The Grave, scratched up with feedback and menacing as fuck need to introduce yourself to Hank Wood And The Hammerheads now.  i'm glad some young new yorkers are taking up their no wave / noise punk heritage and playing some of the best IN YER FACE FUCK YOU GARAGE PUNK SCREE AROUND.........

highly fucking recommended.  everyone who heard this lp when it came out, put GO HOME on the year end best of list......seriously it's that good.  just wish i was quicker on the uptake here cuz i'll be spinning HANK WOOD AND THE HAMMERHEADS OVER AND OVER AND OVER AGAIN AT FULL VOLUME........

listen to two tracks off GO HOME below.....
    and grab your copy from TOXIC STATE, HANK WOOD or PERMANENT RECORDS but the limited run is all gone......which it will be very very soon........




watch HANK WOOD & THE HAMMERHEADS live below......
