Lesbian Grudge Match

I'm not the biggest fan of back-dated '60s-ish garage rock (shocking, I know), which made it all that more amusing when I somehow found my way onto the Get Hip promo list for a brief moment in 1997. Luckily, they sent me stuff that I mostly liked (a couple of Electric Frankenstein records and the Green Pajamas "Indian Winter" CD), until they wised up and stopped sending me free shit a couple of months later.

This one wasn't a freebie, however, having come out about 10 years before then. I probably bought it because it was only a couple of bucks and I thought the song title was funny; I tend to be goofy that way.

"Lesbian Grudge Match", despite having hit single potential written all over it, is actually the b-side to this gem, with the a-side being a cover of The Stooges' "Search and Destroy". Even with all of the garage rock trappings, "Lesbian Grudge Match" is pretty much a snarling Dead Boys-style punk rocker, with the added bonus that comes when you listen closely to the lyrics during the chorus and start giggling your eyeballs out, like I do.

Heretics -

Hey, sorry, but the mp3 file on this post is now a listen-only (non-downloadable) file. For those of you who came to the party late, I will do my best to respond to any e-mailed requests for the original file.
