Suicide Squeeze Records is proud to offer up One Way or the Highway, their latest installment in an ongoing series of split 7” singles, this time featuring Atlanta’s The Coathangers and Southern California’s L.A. Witch. For their contributions, both bands opted to reinterpret beloved songs by classic punk pioneers of their respective coasts.

The Coathangers do their spin on Blondie’s “One Way Or Another,” employing their trademark sweet-and-salty combination of scrappy punk and twee pop to highlight the song’s spikey riffage and gritty soul while retaining its beguiling hooks. L.A. Witch take on The Gun Club’s smoky punk blues with an exhilarating rendition of “Ghost on the Highway.” The trio harness all of the original’s propulsive energy and rockabilly swagger while adding a seductive element to the song’s tales of ominous temptations, draping it all in an extra coating of dusty tolex reverb to bolster its vintage ­avor.
