The Black Lips are a self-described "flower punk" band from Atlanta, Georgia. While still teenagers, they formed in 2000 after guitarist Cole Alexander and bassist Jared Swilley left the Renegades, and guitarist Ben Eberbaugh left the Reruns. Drummer Joe Bradley joined a few months later. They released their first 7-inch in late 2001/early 2002 on their own Die Slaughterhaus label. The Black Lips have a reputation for crazy live shows that have included vomiting, urinating, nudity, and fireworks. They have slowly built a fanbase that appreciates their energy and style that is a rough mishmash of blues, rock, doo-wop, country, and punk. Their cult following among the 20-somethings of Atlanta's hip community have no doubt been inspired by the reviews in such liberal publishings as Creative Loafing. They gained national attention in 2006 with features in Spin and Rolling Stone magazines. The Black Lips have released several full-length records, most recently a live album entitled " Los Valientes Del Mundo Nuevo." It was recorded in Tijuana, Mexico in late Summer 2006.

    Music

    Atlanta's beloved sons the Black Lips (Jared, Ian, Cole, and Joe) entered last year through a screaming cloud of sweat, smoke, blood, and beer mist. After a spring and summer of exciting audiences across the world, the Lips embarked on a month-long fall tour of the Middle East. They were tailed by Georgia rock-doc royalty Bill Cody, of Athens, GA - Inside/Out fame, who filmed the band playing for Egypt who had just overthrown their government, kids in Iraq who barely have a government, and kids in Dubai who finally get to see a band that isn't in the top 40. As Cody assembled his footage into the feature Kids Like You and Me, the band returned home from the New Year's maelstrom and began settling into album mode. 
    Recording for Underneath the Rainbow was split between New York with Thomas Brenneck, who was recommended by Arabia Mountain producer Mark Ronson, and Nashville with the the Black Keys' Patrick Carney, who offered to help produce in a Mexico city hotel room just before dawn. 

    "It was one of those super-late-night/super-early-morning drunk-talk sort of situations, so we weren't sure if he meant it," explains Jared. "People do that all the time."

    Early internet conjecture pegged Underneath the Rainbow's sound as a blend of southern rock with throwback C&W and blues, based on the lead single 'Boys in the Wood', which is a weird description for a record containing the first Black Lips' song with a prominent synth ("Funny"), and even less apt for an overall album that owes just as much to the kiwi pop of New Zealand's South Island and the Chicago South Side's Crucial Conflict as it does the standard American South. It never strays far from the traditional roots music that has always found a comfortable home with the Black Lips, but invites enough curiosity with its approach to attract even the most unlikely listener.

    'Underneath the Rainbow' can only guarantee one thing; that the kids will be Smiling, Waiting for the Dandelion Dust to make things Funny at the Dorner Party while the Boys in the Wood Make You Mine as they Do the Vibrate. The morning will break and the passenger will say, "Drive-By, Buddy… I don't wanna go home. Damn these dog years…"
