PRISSY WHIP + Alternative Press

Prissy Whip
“Los Angeles-based no-wave crew Prissy Whip have spent the last four years of their existence making a glorious racket with alien melodies and stuttering rhythms, the kind of tracks that are in regular rotation on some unknown planet you’d be afraid to visit.”
-Alternative Press

Watch the video for “Dr. Jessup,” animated and directed by Eric Livingston, via Alternative Press, here.

Prissy Whip wields a shrill and utterly disorienting brand of noise rock, somewhere in the league of dynamic and confrontational acts such as Daughters, Throbbing Gristle, Butthole Surfers, and Melt-Banana. Vocalist Crow Jane (Egrets on Ergot) provokes the audience with alarming wails and a convulsing strut. Effects-drunk guitars and pummeling drums collide and careen happily off the rails. Hailing from Los Angeles, Prissy Whip exudes a reckless energy rarely felt since the heyday of its punk scene, and has shared the stage with abrasive, chaotic bands of the same breed including Clipping, Deerhoof, Head Wound City, Retox, Hot Nerds, Psychic Graveyard, Planet B, and The Primals.

Swallow will be released September 21st digitally and on clear vinyl, limited to 250.
Pre-order vinyl, here.
