It’s a rare treat to welcome the BLACK LIPS back to our little old room, but we’re mighty excited to have them back for TWO NIGHTS to celebrate #EB25. The BLACK LIPS have been called many things - garage, revival, goofballs, bad kids, outlaws, flower punks - and since their first release back in 2003 on Bomp! the band has toyed with all of these influences and reputations. Their last two LPs on Vice Records, 2011's Arabia Mountain and 2014's Underneath the Rainbow, were their first with producer's on hand and included the likes of MARK RONSON (DURAN DURAN, AMY WINEHOUSE, LILY ALLEN, KAISER CHIEFS) and PATRICK CARNEY of THE BLACK KEYS. For their ninth studio album, the BLACK LIPS have teamed up with Sean Lennon, who got on board to produce Satan’s graffiti or god’s art?, out May 5th, in 2016. They were also joined by Saul Adamczewski of FAT WHITE FAMILY, who helped co-produce, plus another rather magical guest: YOKO ONO. The final product reflects the growth the BLACK LIPS have experienced since bursting onto the scene, but it’s also true to their original blistering, careening take on rock n’ roll: fuzzy, dirty, and rife with three and four part harmonies.

It's round two of our EB25 series, where we bring back bands of Bottle's past for an EB25 series throughout the year. Come one, come all - let's party like it's 1992.

    Black Lips

    Alternative Rock

    Playing garage-flavored punk rock with a Southern accent, a messed-up and bluesy undertow, and the gleefully destructive impact of a 15-year-old with a bag of firecrackers, the Black Lips are an Atlanta-based combo who after their debut in 2000 soon developed a reputation as one of the Peach State's wildest bands. The Black Lips consisted of Cole Alexander on lead vocals, guitar, and harmonica, Ben Eberbaugh on lead guitar, Jared Swilley on bass, and Joe Bradley on drums when they released their first single. After a second single and a handful of out-of-control live shows that led to them being banned from several Georgia venues, they caught the attention of Greg Shaw at Bomp! Records, who signed the band to a recording deal. The Black Lips cut their self-titled first album in mid-2002, but before it could be released, Ederbaugh was killed in a freak auto accident when a driver going the wrong way crashed into his car at a toll booth. The death occurred only a few days before the Black Lips were to set out on an East Coast and Midwest tour; believing Ederbaugh would have wanted them to continue, the band set out as a three-piece and made plans to add a new lead guitarist for a more extensive tour in 2003, scheduled to support the release of the album. The Black Lips jumped to In the Red for the 2005 effort Let It Bloom. Since that time, the band put out Los Valientes del Mundo Nuevo -- the band's first release for Vice -- and Good Bad Not Evil, both in 2007. 200 Million Thousand followed in 2009, also on Vice. In early 2010, the band hit the studio with producer Mark Ronson and began work on their sixth album, Arabia Mountain, which was slated for release in the summer of 2011. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

    Fed up with sheeple polluting the airways and submitting to easy listening and passive ideals.

    The Sueves

    Garage Punk

    Here is an expert from his 2013 rock.doc titled ‘Eternal verses/beyond meat space/count zero interrupt’

    “Through mystic rock’n’roll music and the power of sound, the Sueves intend to bring all listeners into the flock of the Yog-Sothoth. Their verses intend to worship the coming of the son. Like sigils made from pure sound, the Sueves ancient tunes reignite the primal and true self. Our reverence to their chorus is focused into a laser like knifepoint all in the name of the great deceiver. They’re cool tho, the Sueves will rock you. The Sueves will guide you. The Sueves are past, present and forever and ever. Happynocops2013."
