The new Queen of punk and The Black Halos frontman release a limited edition 7" of two songs.
Remember duets? Of course you do: I Got You, Islands In The Stream, Stop Draggin’ My Heart Around, Don’t Go Breakin’ My Heart, Wendy O Williams and Lemmy blasting through Stand By Your Man. Duets ruled the airwaves and remain karaoke classics to this day.
Suzi Moon, dubbed “the new Queen of punk” by Vive Le Rock Magazine, and Billy Hopeless, frontman of The Black Halos, met years ago while touring with their respective bands. When Billy reached out to Suzi about a duet project, she jumped at the chance to work with someone whose work she greatly admires.
The result of their collaboration is “Love Is A Stranger,” a gut-wrenching “pirate ghost waltz” about unrequited love that showcases both Suzi and Billy’s strengths as lead singers. The spooky organ played by Moon guitarist Drew Champion adds another layer of haunting beauty to the song. On the B-side, “Communicado,” a short but sweet catchy blast of pop aware punk written by Billy, shows off the duo’s playful side.
Duets can be a challenging task, but Suzi and Billy’s mutual respect and love for rock and roll made the process a joy. The limited edition 7″ is out now on white vinyl through Yeah Right! Records. Get ready to add “Nothing Left To Lose” to your collection and immerse yourself in the haunting beauty of these two talented musicians.
