Hickey Vs. Voodoo Glow Skulls
Back in the early '90s I saw the Fuckboyz in L.A. at the Coconut Teazer. They were AMAZING. I moved to S.F. 6 years later and saw Aesop and Matty's new band Hickey, and while I missed the Fuckboyz doughy frontman "Seaweed", they were also really good. Even though the Fuckboyz "Love American Gladiator Style" is my favorite thing those guys ever put out, one of the funniest things I've ever heard (outside a Scharpling and Wurster bit, or the prank calls on Wool's "Budspawn" vinyl ep) has been the Hickey & Voodoo Glow Skulls 7".
Instead of uploading the mp3s, the link is to mattyluv.com where you can download everything he's ever been on for FREE. However dear readers, I did the daunting task of converting the 28 PAGE insert/zine into a PDF (without the meth and heroin Hickey was fueled by when they made it). Anyways, now you can read the hilarious tale behind the record and many more ramblings.
Long story short: Voodoo Glow Skulls were douches to Hickey; Hickey stole their trumpet; the singer of VGS left crazy threatening messages on their machine. Confused? You won't be after this weeks episode of "Soap".
