Premiere: People's Temple, “Vice Grip”

After two LPs on HoZac and singles via Goodbye Boozy and Third Man, People's Temple joined the Tennessee label, Jeffery Drag, for Vol.2 of its single series. The band consisting of two pairs of brothers from Lansing, MI are a gang of shut-ins, stuck to the couch and leveled to the floor on "Vice Grip". Even the machine-gun percussion can't shake them from their malaise. For most of the band, it's tossing back beers since whatever it was never kicked in, while one man squirms on the floor. Even sunglasses can't hide the engorged pupils in the throes of a bad trip.

Vol.2 is out now on Jeffery Drag.
