Valentine's Day Hickey

You know that Cosmic Hearse doesn't really go for holiday posts, and I especially don't care for the pseudo-romantic pablum of Valentine's day, but this relic was too good to pass up. Seems that the awesome Scotty Luv (younger brother of Matty Luv) was sitting on this rare recording of Hickey doing their thing on Valentine's day way back in '97. Steve Stevenson of 1-2-3-4 Go Records cleaned it up a bit and now it goes in your earholes. Also this is as good a place to mention that 1-2-3-4 Go Records is on the verge of releasing a massive gatefold double LP edition of Hickey's Various States of Disrepair with extra tracks and shit. The image I used is the Valentine's day card I made for my girlfriend using nothing but porn and an Indian takeout menu.

Got this from Steve yesterday and have listened to it a couple times already. I miss Hickey. Can't wait for that LP.

The best thing about listening to old Hickey sets is hearing Matty ranting. And the fucking sweet variations on songs. Wish I was there.

It's not my usual kinda thing, but Hickey fucking rocks. I think the awesome noise rock elements cancel out the sense of melody that would usually turn me off in a punk band. Cheers!

wow, it's great to hear this since i don't actually remember those days too well... can't help but get a little choked up hearing matty's voice coming through my speakers...


oh hey aesop earlier today i was in aquarius and they have this book of "american 7" record" art and "art, messianism and crime" is on the cover, however i flipped through and inside it wrongly lists hickey as a southern california band. i think some dude just scanned all his old records and made a book. have you seen that yet?

I have the book. It is sorted by label and the label, Last Resort, was from Southern California.
