Church Police-Gilligan's Wings 7" & 5 Song EP 7"

Mostly known for their cut on the seminal Not So Quiet on the Western Front compilation, the Church Police left behind a unfortunately slim body of work. Both of these 7"s came out well after their demise, and I've had a hard time finding much info on the on line. But really, do you need a band biography or are you here for the tunes? So I guess the easy comparison is to fellow San Fran sludge merchants, Flipper but that might be a little too easy. These tracks stumble and lurch with the best of them. I'm sure it pissed off a lot of punks at the time. Good. Sebadoh even covered these guys, which I always thought was kinda odd.
