Cripple Creek Fairies The Fist

Even if their music was completely un-listenable, The Fist might still be worth the price of purchase because of the hilariously original comic book that accompanies it. Following the story of a very bad dude called "the Fist,” the comic illustrates the band’s battle, and subsequent victory, over evil. The music isn’t half bad itself, mixing an old-school organ sound with the driving punk energy of MC5 and the Stooges. Fun songs like "Choppin’ Blocks and Breakin’ Hearts in the Shin Pow Clan!” are insanely catchy, while tracks like "Rock Your Panties Off!” quite literally do. (Catch and Release)
