Listen: The Coathangers – Merry Go Round
Atlanta, Georgia’s favorite raucous daughters, The Coathangers, return with the second installment in their series of four split 7″s on Suicide Squeeze Records. This time, The Coathangers’ effortless amalgam of garage rock righteousness, riot grrrl bad-ass-ness, and post-punk jaggedness is paired up with the propulsive proto-punk of their former tourmates in Nashville’s Heavy Cream.
With the first of The Coathangers’ split singles on Suicide Squeeze now out of print (the highly coveted pairing with Puerto Rican party rockers Davilla 666), it’s not hard to imagine the 750 copies of this 7″ (250 opaque red, 500) selling out fast. Grab it while you can.
The limited edition single will be available worldwide on October 2nd via Suicide Squeeze. The single features “Merry Go Round” as the A-side and Heavy Cream’s “Toasted” as the AA-side, along with artwork from Westin Glass of the Thermals.
