Agony Shorthand. With some intrepid detective work, I've found this explanation from Freestone member Billy DeMoya, who confirms that it was indeed meant to be "taking the piss", and yet for so many of us this is a high water mark for berzerk, revved-up dumb rock.
A total happy accident. Many a night I've lain awake wondering about that A-side "Church". What wonders or horrors would await me when I finally heard it? Well now that I have, it's Bummer Bitch - Klazo - Demo this San Francisco -based group really had their hearts set on prog -- make that really badly-played, pseudo-"Bats in the Belfry" Tull prog, albeit with some quite blasphemous lyrics which are always a treat. It's awful. In reading DeMoya's tales of free shows in Golden Gate Park, I have to wonder if they were bold enough to Bummer Bitch - Klazo - Demo out "Bummer Bitch" at top volume and instantly ruin the goodtime freak vibe.
I'm sure with various tellings the tales get taller by the year. On the evidence here, Freestone just happened to get lucky once, for two minutes flat, and created a monolith of Lower Species - Demo 2015, tasteless punk rock lunacy.
