Loud, snotty, and fully loaded, the Hemingers carry the trash-rock torch like a fistful of dynamite. Fronted by rock-cult illustrator Ben Lyon, the trio adds scuzzy freakshow alchemy to atomic-era tittyshakers and frat rock. Their debut EP WHAT’S A HEMINGER? is a party platter of reckless thrills that will leave you with sticky mysteries to savor long after the pie’s been had.
In the beer-soaked tradition of garage punk ala the Mummies, the Oblivians, and Thee Milkshakes, the Hemingers play ROCKnROLL stripped down to its primitive pulse. Add to that vicious guitar rips, rattletrap rhythms, and a face-diving, lucha libre performance style.
“What’s A Heminger?” is a wild jungle rocker beat out on some pawn shop skins and covered in all manner of teen-beast screams. “Cmon Shake” mixes Link Wray’s clucky strut with shit-storming punk. “Junkie Jane” is pure guts. And as a closer, the Hemingers put “GTO” into overdrive for a hotwired joyride, toy piano and all.
The Hemingers finished the EP and a case of Hamm’s all in a day’s work at Magnetic South recording studio, which captured onto tape for first time the savage energy of their legendary live performances.
