I try to stay current. I don’t do a very good job, but I try. Black Lips are a rock band out of Atlanta. I was pleased to read that they are known for “provocative theatrics” including, wait for it, “vomiting, urination, fireworks, a chicken, and flaming guitars.”
Having read that, I though it odd that one of their tunes, “Drive By Buddy,” struck me as not entirely dissimilar to two very decidedly unprovocative songs of a bygone era.” Maybe it’s all in my head, but I heard strains of The Monkees “Last Train to Clarksville” and the Statler Brothers “Counting Flower on the Wall.”
Bet nobody pissed or threw up in the making of those records.
