HITS! AN ALL TIME LOW compiles the HOLLYWOOD lads’ first two singles with seven new cuts from their final days as a freebasing teen trio (a two guitar and drum assault — 100% bass free!). Twelve ragers in all, including a Pretty Things cover that is less than… pretty. Packing enough slimy-swagger to fill your speakers and leave a rotgut residue that you won’t ever wanna wipe after. With songs concerning the Middle East (“Human B.B.Q”), your mom (“Momma”), neighborhood creeps (“Toucher”), pretty boys (“Girl?”), and Ione Skye (“Ione Skye”) there’s something for literally EVERYONE living OR breathing. That’s why Big Neck Records, longtime purveyors of all things sonically ROCK, have shelled out for 500 of these fuggers in both beautiful LP and portable CD formats. So DON’T MISS OUT. There simply aren’t enough to go around.
YESorNODC came through with a great review, and a resounding YES for the album:
“From here on in the riffs only snowball in swagger. “Sixteen” through “Girl?” (also available on 7″) are pretty much classics. If you’re not at least half head banging by now, go check your record collection and make sure you like rock n roll. If you can stand up to the relentless pounding the drums are dishing out, you might be handy in a fight. You might also want to check Hollywood out live, though this would normally mean a trip up 95 to Charm City. They don’t really mess with us DC ussies.”
