The group from Georgia started out in the late 90s as a notorious, leathery version of The Kinks, with a kind of dislocated and strident twang-punk that ended up having a major impact on a whole generation of bands today that are fundamental to understanding the garage rock of the last decade (in our country, without going any further, we can see their influence in the Hinds, The Parrots and Los Nastys). The enfants terribles of the In the Red label were capable of combining all the impudence and eschatology of the late G.G. Allin with the deranged psych revolt of 13th Floor Elevators, and still manage to be one of a kind. Inevitably, their live shows soon became legendary invitations to physical engagement, a genuine sonic catharsis rife with antics, greasy riffs and spitting that recovered the lo-fi sound of legendary groups like The Raunch Hands and the Crypt Records label. With ten must-listen-to albums behind them, Black Lips ended up evolving towards a kind of dangerous and feral country-rock that has found its maximum manifestation in their latest album, the Stones-like ‘Sing in a World That’s Falling Apart‘, probably one of the best albums of the bleak and baleful 2020. #punk
