The Hippriests are a punrock band from Berlin, Germany.
Formed under the spell of Mark E.Smith in the late 80s this powerful Berlin based trio became the perpetuum mobile of Garage punk. Excessively touring Germany and Europe with bands that read like the encyclopaedia of rockandroll from Antiseen, New Bomb Turks, Rocket From The Crypt to zombies who no longer exist.
Unlike their contemporaries they never believe or rely on product, rather sticking a finger up the rear of a decaying industry and wrack havoc on stage. Although leaving a trace for the record collecting nerds and fiends of fetisch 5 vinyl 7"s on various labels (including their own: Anger Factory), one Cd on Amöbenklang, some compilation tracks and a flexi disc can be found in the vaults of oblivion. Dedicated followers of fashion love them for their extraordinary taste of crossing language and dressing code borders. Firm believers of the strict punkrockcode embrace them for their simplicity in chordchanges. As Adam Ant once said about music and knowledge:
"You may not like the things we do but only idiots ignore the truth".
To this day The Hippriests are the living proof that the truth is out there.
