The Queers are here and have been one of the most influential pop-punk bands of the last 25 years. Here, The Queers contribute two songs to this split 7” with Chris Barrows Band, leader of the legendary and now defunct Pink Lincolns. The Queers cover “Beat Your Heart Out” originally performed by The Zeros and they have re-recorded “Everything’s OK” which originally appeared on their 1998 album Punk Rock Confidential. Their side of the 7” serves as a preview of their re-recorded version of Punk Rock Confidential, which will come be out sometime in 2018. The Chris Barrows Band provides two new songs of the snotty and catchy punk that made the Pink Lincolns so popular. You can feel the franticness and rowdiness in front man Chris Barrows voice that accompany their live shows. These two bands, in some form, have been playing on each other’s records for years. Think of this record as the studio sequel to the 1994 split 7” “Live At Some Prick’s House” which featured The Queers and Pink Lincolns. This 7” is an essential addition to any Queers or Barrows collection.
