The Hip Priests

Profile:
British Punk Rock band formed in May 2006 in Nottingham, England.
Original line up was Gary X-Ray (vocals), Lee Love (Bass), Fast JImmy (Guitar) and Skintight Tim (drums). Initially formed just for excuses to hang about and get pissed, the band's hastily recorded initial demo of six songs was snapped up by Sweden's esteemed Bootleg Booze record label - forcing the band to continue.
Jimmy/James left the band in 2009 claiming that the band partying and drug intake had become more important than their musical endeavours. By this time, new guitarist, Austin Rocket (recruited through Lee Loves over-zealous use of the gay sex liaison app, Grinder) had well taken predominant guitar and fingering duties. Gary X-Ray left the band in 2010 following a fatal midlife crisis and, although the band considered jacking it in, the recruitment of local panda-eyed kickboxing champion and Tom Cruise strippagram, Nathan Von Cruz, instantly injected the band with a new lease of life - despite being banned from glamorous Grimsby at their first gig with the new line up after altercations with Hell's Angels and 'exotic dancers' in attendance.
To cut a long story short, the band have put out a further two albums and approximately now eight singles (and counting) of genius post-turbonegro (when they were good)/new bomb turks (ditto) stooges/aussie influenced anthemic proto punk. The singles pretty much sell out in little time at all and they've amassed a pretty hard core fanbase of loon collectors and misfits. The music world at large doesn't give a fuck but neither, in the main, do they.
