Single Review

'Dirty Psychedelic Flower Punks'? Please - how long did that piece of descriptive drivel take to come up with? Black Lips sound like the mutant, bastard offspring of the Velvet Underground, The Stones and the Stooges. Great you say, sounds amazing. Sadly if there are offspring of this unholy trinity, then Black Lips are the retard child that should be kept locked in that little attic room.

This would be a prime example of style over content if there were any obvious style to be had here. Playing the guitar badly, for example, is not an artistic statement in any corner of the real world. You're only allowed to go out of time and out of key in Patagonian Tribal Jazz or other such freeform genres.

To wrongly paraphrase the old KitKat chocolate advert 'You can't sing, you can't play, you look terrible - the only reason I'm not telling you to where to go is that I need someone around to look down on'
