Biography

Atlanta's beloved sons the Black Lips entered last year through a screaming cloud of sweat, smoke, blood, and beer mist, in front of a dangerously packed hall in New Orleans' French Quarter. If a band's bipolarity runs on a touring vs. recording-an-album spectrum, then the previous year was the mother of all manic spells.

After a spring and summer running the usual festival ... Read more in Amazon's Black Lips Store

Product Description

The Black Lips take Back from the grave style garage punk frenzy to such extremes of slavering cacophony that they border on experimental noise rock at times. Tossing musical decorum out the window while barreling down memory lane, this is the perfect album for Swamp rats fans who think The Sonics are too tame. Performed with far more gusto than finesse and recorded at several different locations to ensure lack of consistency in the tinny sound, We Did Not Know the Forest Spirit Made the Flowers Grow is an avalanche of distortion and fuzz, with occasional variety provided from touches such as the slower swamp blues of "Dawn of the Age of Tomorrow," the mock classicality of "Nothing at All/100 New Fears," and the pulsating organ on "Notown Blues." There are even a few hooks that manage to surface from the thunderous din, although this album is best appreciated if you don't expect the melodicism of a power pop band. The CD also includes a "hidden" track of experimental noodling, as well as a Quicktime video of "Fad."

Adrenal, revivalist garage punk 30 May 2004
By hyperbolium - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
The second helping from this Atlanta quartet follows a similar path charted by their debut: guitar-heavy garage punk, ala the revivalist sounds of The Salvation Army, Chesterfield Kings and early Pandoras. Vocalist Cole Alexander spits out lyrics like an early Mick Jagger, with a dash of the bluesy swagger Jim Sohns brought to the Shadows of Knight. Plenty of fuzz guitar, lo-fi drums and microphone distortion round out a compellingly adrenal sound. Enhanced CD includes a Quicktime video of "Fad."

the black lips 6 April 2008
By Brock Maganz - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This album rules im a metal fan but this is great rock and roll with the old school sound you will love this.This band has the sounds from the 70's if you like them you will like this.
At first I didn't love this album (or their first) 29 April 2015
By Jake - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I became a Black Lips fan after hearing Arabia Mountain, and then I explored their discography backwards. At first I didn't love this album (or their first); at the time it was probably the rawest album I'd ever heard. After several listens to sift through the extreme lo-fi recordings, some amazing songs are revealed. It still isn't their best album in my opinion, but if you are a Black Lips fan or a fan of lo fi psychedelic garage rock in general, it's worth it.
