Black Lips – “Drive By Buddy”

blaI 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.”

Okay.

Bet nobody pissed or threw up in the making of those records.
