Stream New Big D / Doped Up Dollies Split

Today, Big D and the Kids Table and Doped Up Dollies released the digital version of a 7-inch split on their own Strictly Rude Records. The two new songs are available for streaming on Spotify and for purchase from iTunes and Amazon. The physical 7-inch will be available at the bands’ upcoming Halloween shows.

The first track, “Oi DJ,” sounds like a B-side from The New Way Out. It’s just as much a Big D song as it is a Doped Up Dollies tune, but it heavily features vocalist David McWane, where as the New Way Out was almost entirely the Doped Up Dollies singing. The track features a chat from vocalist Maddie Ruthless. Coolie Ranx is also credited on Spotify but I couldn’t pick him out on the track.

Track two is a cover of Hepcat’s classic “Earthquake and Fire,” except thrash, because Big D. Fans of Big D sing-a-longs will click immediately. The second half of the tune goes dub and is a more recognizable take on the Hepcat jam.
