THE BLACK LIPS: [2003] The Black Lips [bomp]

Atlanta garage rock maniacs Black Lips have achieved a level of notoriety that's allowed them to be seen on Conan O'Brien's show and year-end "best of" lists everywhere. Their debut, BLACK LIPS!, finds them in the cocoon but growing their rock-&-roll ... Full Descriptionwings. "Stone Cold" is a drunken zombie swamp blues, "Steps" manages to evoke the title with choppy guitar and a beat, and "Crazy Girl" plays up the fuzzy punk aspect of their sound. Though the Lips played in a retro pond, they never once sounded like an oldies act.
Stripped down & dirty punk rock & roll that will suffice for the perfect soundtrack to a whiskey filled night of mischief. Youthful & deep dyed garage rock taken to the next level! 13 tracks. Bomp Records. 2003.
Contains an untitled hidden track following " You're Dumb".
Joe (vocals, piano, organ, drums); Jared (vocals, bass).
Recorded at Mobik, Zero Return, Atlanta, Georgia and Radium Studios, Athens, Georgia.
Black Lips: Cole (voocals, guitar, samples); Ben (vocals, guitar)
