***“HELLO SHITTY PEOPLE from Chattanooga left this world in 2001, leaving behind a 7-inch on This Here Records and an LP recorded but never released. I bought that 7” based on their band name alone almost 9 years ago. How could a band called ‘Hello Shitty People’ not be good? Anyway I’ve honestly treasured that little record ever since. The true early Crimpshriney spirit of East Bay Pop punk had been picked up, kicked in the side and made weirder by these southern gents in a way I honestly don’t think has been done better by anyone claiming to do the same thing. It’s dark, it’s positive, it has bass lines that make Matt Freeman look like a rank amateur. I’m only half joking about that last one. These guys came from and went on to be in bands like LOS CANADIANS, RADON, CORTEZ THE KILLER and a million others.”—1-2-3-4 Go.
