English Punk: The Hip Priests – “Scene Is A Crime”

The Hip Priests

“Scene Is A Crime” (split single with Pagans)

What a great punk band.  The Hip Priests know how to rock out, and “Scene Is A Crime” is a tremendous punk song.  Coming from the Nottingham/Lincoln area, these guys should the English know how to kill it.  The Hip Priest are comprised of (and I quote):  ” NATHAN VON CRUZ – YELLING, MOANING;  LEE LOVE – SQUEALING, FILTHY BOTTOM END…;  AUSTIN ROCKET – GROANING, LICKING, FURIOUS FINGERING; and  JOE BLOW – BEATING, BANGING.  Their biography states, and I can’t say it any better than these literal punks can say:

The inbred, oversexed, white trash bastard sons of Iggy P, Johnny T, Lemmy & Handsome Dick.
An awesome, glorious mess of Rampantly sexual, Souped up, Lubed up, Fucked up, Low Rent, Hot Assed Anthemic (s)Punk Rock ‘n’ Roll to make the little girls weep and big girls wet. A sweet ‘n’ sweaty sonic tonic to accompany your recreational drinkin, druggin and fuckin’.
Wasn’t ‘Rock ‘n’ Roll’ originally a term for fucking anyway? Wasn’t it fun? Provocative? Sexualised? Weren’t parents meant to say ‘Turn that noise down’? Yeah, they were…So get down, get dirty and hail The Breakneck Babylon Babies, The spleen exploding Sermonisers of the Sacred Sexualsonic Psalms, the Crazed messiahs of deep-fried bone rattling rock ‘n’ roll! The Righteous King Rockers of in your face Rock ‘n’ roll Bukkake.
Ladies and Gentlemen, Hot girls and pretty boys…
the biggest Dicks in Rock ‘n’ Roll… The Sonic Reproducers….The Hip Priests.
Any band that claims Handsome Dick Manitoba and the Dead Boys is alright in my book.  These is my new favorite punk band.  These guys get it.
