Side A of the split features a gnarly RPB original, "Boyfriend in a Coma," about a territorial young lady whose incapacitated beau is causing some drama in the ward, followed by a cover of late '70s Belgian punks The Kids' "Money Is All I Need," which is a little more manic than the original, in a totally appropriate way. Side B features an awesomely sludgy, horror-flick-moody cut from the Joos; in keeping with the duo's trademark sense of humor, this warning against evil spirits is titled "Hungry for Souls and Funyuns," and in keeping with their stockpile of skills, its invisible-orange-hoisting riffage and nimble, powerhouse percussion make it perfect for blasting on a sunny afternoon.
In any case, the dance party/hangout starts at 8 p.m. at The Boro in the 'Boro tonight, where you can grab a copy of the single for only $5. If that doesn't fit your plans, a few copies of the special limited-edition clear 7-inch are available, which each come with a copy of a comic book called The Sleeze, drawn by Dakota Jernigan and starring Megajoos. If you miss that, there's a black copy; all copies include a correction kit to fix the misprint on the label, should you so choose, as well as a cut-out title strip for your jukebox, should you happen to own one (and if you do, feel free to invite me to your dance party).
Culture Cringe's masked honcho Cringey tells us to look for copies in your neighborhood friendly record stores next week. For now, you can stream the three tracks after the jump.
