Record Of The Day – ROYAL PAINS ‘Get Punched’

This is a scarce and somewhat overlooked single by Seattle’s ROYAL PAINS on Jonny Cat Records out of Portland, Oregon. It came out in 2005. It’s worth noting that it was produced by Billy Childish. Royal Pains was a fella named and Owen and Tiffany Lee Linnes who is most known for her band The Stuck Ups. She was also in the Buff Medways tribute band known as The Buffets with Bongo Debbie of Thee Headcoatees and Nurse Julie (MBE / Stuck-Ups). Tiffany is currently in a band called The Paper Dolls. There might be other members of Royal Pain but those are the two vocalists. They bring to mind a kind of rough n tumble budget rock version of The Rezillos and they site The Saints as an influence as well. Without further ado here are THE ROYAL PAINS! ENJOY!
