7" single The Freeze "I Hate Tourists" / "Don't Forget Me Tommy".
First pressing, Mint condition. Bought from original owner who got it at The Freeze record release show in Dennis, MA on Cape Cod. "Didn't like it, only listened once." In dry storage ever since. It is like brand new. This is one of the first hardcore punk records in America.
"The Freeze were one of the original hardcore bands in America. Cape Cod is crawling with tourists so it makes sense that The Freeze’s most memorable song was “I hate tourists”. The decidedly negative song featuring the immortal couplet “I hate tourists, tourists suck, it’s only their daughters i want to f***” was featured on Killed By Death #2."
"I Hate Tourists on the other hand is classic in every sense of the word. Clif Hanger's voice is one of the best both in HC and here when they sound more like good ol’ punk."
Clif Hanger: ”The song became a novelty “hit” that summer on Boston radio. Cape Cod kids singing a profanity-laden song about hating tourists” was too funny a premise for Boston radio to ignore.”
Only 500 printed in this original pressing.
