NYC Punk legend Sonny Vincent (The Testors, Sonny Vincent & Spite) is back with a brand new album full of gritty, grimy, take-no-prisoners Punk Rock’N'Roll–available only on Get Hip Recordings.
Bizarro Hymns features 15 raw, new cuts of fuzzed-out Blues Rock mayhem imbued with the rebellious attitude of ’77 Punk. From album opener “Don’t Give A Fuck”‘s “attitude-soaked, middle finger riff-a-rama” to “the garage stomp of ‘Voodoo Box’” and “the full-on fuzz of ‘Spin Out’,” Vincent continues to prove that the spirit of Punk Rock never dies. It just gets better–and more volatile–with age.
BLURT Online adds: “With song titles like ‘Don’t Give A Fuck,’ ‘Faster Pussycat’ and ‘Pushing Up Daisies’ you’re probably not going to expect a tender song cycle, eh? And that’s just fine with NYC Punk legend Sonny Vincent (The Testors, Sonny Vincent & Spite), who returns…with a brand new album full of gritty, grimy, take-no-prisoners Punk Rock’N’Roll.”
Bizarro Hymns is available now on 12″ LP and CD. The LP comes in three limited edition variants: Translucent Blue Color Vinyl (150 copies), Crystal Clear Color Vinyl (150 copies), and standard Black Vinyl (250 copies). All copies are pressed on 150-gram vinyl.

BLURT is helping The Cynics celebrate the 25th anniversary of their landmark album Rock’N'Roll (1990) with an in-depth feature detailing the record’s creation, reception, and lasting impact on the music industry.
“Pittsburgh, aka Steel City because of the once-dominant steel manufacturing industry, used to be one of America’s most polluted cities, sending industrial contaminants far and wide. Meanwhile, local garage outfit the Cynics, who formed in the mid ’80s and debuted in 1987 with Blue Train Station followed by 1988’s 12 Flights Up, were busy working on a legacy of a different sort, one which would ultimately provide a template for bands around the world to make their way in the cold cruel world of the music industry. The band, featuring core members Gregg Kostelich on guitar and Michael Kastelic on vocals, has gone through several incarnations since its inception. Along the way, the band’s label, Get Hip Records, established by Kostelich at the outset, has managed to keep alive a fiercely independent work ethos in the face of tremendous upheaval throughout the aforementioned industry…”
