One of the best punk songs are done as a joke by a non punk band. How great and ironic is that? Church has ONE great moment and that’s when Willie Braun sings “…and most of you will get punished” the puffing sound on “punished” into the microphone is worth a few spins.
I think Church will appeal to Erich/Good Bad since it has that retarded hard rock feel to it that I know he loves.
Bummer Bitch don’t need any words to describe how great it is. Everything is perfect: sound, arrangement, lyrics and the awesome vocals. “The thing is….. is that it was a joke! We were making fun of the PUNK movement and it was taken seriously!”
And yes here’s the test press. Bummer Bitch suck my dick!!
Bummer Bitch is a killer song, the other one starts interesting but gets a bit dumbish.
But as long as you’re not posting ULTRAVOX, everything’s fine with me!

Heard Bummer Bitch before on KBD and loved it, b-sides sucks really hard, wtf is that?
I miss my test press already.

Isn’t this the site about Punk, powerpop, mod, hard core music?
Church isn’t bad at all. never has been. whats the matter with you?
Drzeke, didn’t you listen to bummer bitch? one of the best punk songs you’ll ever hear. well for church… maybe good bad hard rock sounding a little bit punk?

Get rid of that barn smell!
How could I????
An unforgettable masterpiece.
Conster Mock used to play in Fear Of Soap!
I think the lyrics on “Church” are pretty funny, the music sucks though.
“Church” sounds like a song SPINAL TAP passed on, but was too good to go unheard. Both sides of this EP are good in my book.
“Bummer Bitch” is such a dirty, raw classic. It’s kind of like a companion of other X-rated tunes like the Angry Samoans’ hilarious “The Ballad of Jerry Curlan”. I was floored when I first heard “Bummer Bitch” on KBD#2 many years ago. Then I almost threw up a few years later when I heard the flipside “Church” because it was so bad to my ears. Yuck, yuck, yuck! “Bummer Bitch” is a classic case of accidental greatness like so many other beloved KBD-type records. Best use of a piano in a punk song, I think.
I recognize “Bummer Bitch” as an old band from my area used to cover it, The Epiletix.
They did a live recording of it and play it a little faster so therefore I think I like the cover version a little more.
Pretty funny shit. It was meant to be a joke, and lo and behold it became a classic “punk” record. I wonder if “Spinal Tap” goes punk, in ten years, their music will be classic? Go figure.
What about Mikes mate Noel Edmonds and his Brown Sauce record. Theres some real punk for ya, Trainspotters HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
