The Control Freaks - I Hate Your Face
One of the best releases from last year that I didn't feature on here (as it wasn't on youtube, hopefully the band don't mind me now rectifying that) was the Double Dose Of Hate single which was by The Control Freaks and came out in November on vinyl via Dirty Water Records. You can check it out here : https://thecontrolfreaksband.bandcamp.com/album/double-dose-of-hate
If you caught them last time they featured on this blog (https://justsomepunksongs.blogspot.com/2017/04/control-freaks-control-freaks.html) you'll know they're from San Francisco and feature Rip Off Records' boss Greg Lowery on bass and vocals. Alongside Greg are Sherrilynn Nelson (rhythm guitar/vocals), Tim Curry (drums) and Jeff Glave (lead guitar). As you might expect from a band featuring the man behind Supercharger, The Rip Offs, Infections and Zodiac Killers, The Control Freaks are a) a garage punk influenced powerhouse and b) fucking awesome!
I'm guessing it won't be too long before the band are featured again as they've a new album in the pipeline. Keep an eye on updates here : https://www.facebook.com/ControlFreaksSF/
From the single and written by guitarist (and former member of bands such as The Velveteen Loveseat, The Omens, The Hampton Wicks, The Satisfactions, The Krells etc) Sherrilynn Nelson, this is called I Hate Your Face....
