The Freeze – I Hate Tourists 7″

freeze_tourist_front.jpgThe first and notorious The Freeze 7inch that given many a record collector some headache. Is it really THAT good? Well Don’t Forget Me Tommy is a really bad bad “new wave” song. There’s good new wave but this isn’t. It’s a good laugh but nothing else.


I Hate Tourists on the other hand is classic in every sense of the word. Cliff Hangers voice is one of the best both in HC and here when they sound more like good ol’ punk.


From Cliffs liner notes included in a limited re-issue of this by Canadas Schizoprenic Records(Still some copies left so hurry up!):”The song became a novelty “hit” that summer on Boston radio;”Cape Cod kids singing a profanity laden song about hating tourists” was too funny a premise for Boston radio to ignore.”

    I really like “Don’t forget me Tommy”.The synth on that song is great and kinda spooky giving the song a special feel.

    Good to see a classic still appreciated. Freeze Favorite: I Hate Tourists, second: Refrigerator Heaven (such a great song). Cliff is wild front man.

    Back ’80 (’81?) I was friends with a friend/near neighbor of Cliff’s and was able to videotape the Freeze doing IHT for the local public access cable channel. Lousy video, great music =)

    I still have 45 of IHT somewhere too.
