Published Nov 03, 2014The Coathangers served up a batch of originals on their Suck My Shirt LP earlier in the year, but they'll be capping 2014 with a cover for a new split 7-inch with dismantled post-hardcore crew These Arms Are Snakes. The tributary track from the Atlanta trio is a revamp of the Gun Club's classic punk-blues stomp, "Sex Beat."
The Coathangers' version of the Fire of Love opener hits the same kind of marks as the original, with sleazed-up vocals placed high above a dirty power chords and a direct and derelict rhythm. A sex beat, if you will.
You'll find a stream of "Sex Beat" down below. Despite having broken up in 2010, These Arms Are Snakes, former tourmates of the Coathangers, contribute a cover of the Lost Sounds' "Energy Drink & The Long Walk Home." Suicide Squeeze issues the 7-inch single December 2.
