Raised during the 80’s debauchery on the Sunset Strip and still going strong in 2022, JIZZY PEARL’S LOVE/HATE have released their brand-new and long-awaited album, Hell, CA, out now on CD and digital through Golden Robot Records.
The album’s release was preceded by three absolutely cracking singles, ‘Gonna Take You Higher’, ‘Wanna Be Somebody’ and ‘Soul Mama’, which show Jizzy in fine form and gives a strong indication as to what to expect from Hell, CA.
HELL, CA. is a collection of 10 hard-hitting rock anthems, all with that distinctive Love/Hate style, with Jizzy Pearl’s trademark vocals taking the songs up and beyond and the heavy guitars doing the rest.
ALBUM TRACK BY TRACK
One Hot Minute
This lead-off song has all the hallmarks of the classic Love/Hate sound, loud guitars driving drums and Jizzy Pearl’s trademark vocals—a scorcher from beginning to end!
This is a love song in the best tradition! Sunset strip hard rockin’ anthem with Jizzy baring his soul! Drums and loud guitars seal the deal! Love is alive!
Gonna Take You Higher
A psychedelic journey through the mind of rocket engineer/occultist Jack Parsons, it’s the Book of the Law spelled out in a hard rock anthem! Acoustic guitars and a drone-like guitar chorus bring this one home!
Jizzy Pearl cranks out his love for the band AC/DC in this rock anthem reminiscent of ‘Back in Black’—heavy guitars and screeching vocals make for a hit tune for sure!
Hard to Say Goodbye
A homage to Jizzy Pearl’s late brother Bill who passed away in 2018 Hard to Say Goodbye is a heart-felt song that captures all the emotions of loss and regret.
When You Gonna Come Home
Girls who try too hard and get too crazy is the subject of this hard-hitting tune. An epic journey from hard rock beginning to psychedelic Beatle-like ending this one is a gem!
A ballad in true Love/Hate fashion LAST CHANCE takes the listener on a humorous and sarcastic journey through the trappings of love and loss. Another hit!
Bruised And Battered
A cautionary tale of drinking too much and not remembering the morning after BRUISED AND BATTERED is a song in the tradition of Love/Hate drinking songs like ‘Fuel to Run’ and ‘One More Round’—when you play you gotta pay!
Wanna Be Somebody
Girls who come out to Hollywood to seek fame and fortune often end up on the wrong side and this song captures it brilliantly. This one delivers a solid groove and a bad-ass chorus–A heavy hitter for sure!
Lonely Days Are Gone
Another personal Jizzy Pearl song about love and relationships in 2022—reminiscent of Ted Nugent ‘Stranglehold’ it’s a seven-minute non-stop heavy hitter with a crazy ending!
