Black Lips

Niezrównani pionierzy kwiecistego punka z Atlanty, Black Lips powracają ze swoim pierwszym albumem od trzech lat: Satan’s graffiti or God’s art? Album został wyprodukowany przez Seana Lennona w jego studiu/pracowni w północnej części stanu Nowy Jork w przeciągu 2016 roku. Album jest najbardziej muzycznie zaawansowaną płytą grupy, a zarazem pozostają oni wierni swemu oryginalnemu, płomiennemu podejściu do brudnego rock n’ rolla.

Podczas nagrywania albumu zespół odizolował się od świata zewnętrznego, napełniając album skoncentrowaną na muzyce żywiołowością, podobną do ducha, który ich połączył gdy zaczynali grać. Na Satan’s graffiti or God’s art? członkowie założyciele Cole Alexander i Jared Swilley połączyli siły z byłym gitarzystą Jackiem Hinesem (który grał w grupie w latach 2002-2004) oraz nowymi nabytkami: Oakley Munson na perkusji i Zumi Rosow na saksofonie. Na albumie pojawiają się także Saul Adamczewski z Fat White Family oraz gościnnie na wokalu Yoko Ono.

Black Lips zrodziło się z etyki DIY, zaczynając od małych, “sweaty” koncertów w Georgii, by później grać dla ogromnych tłumów na międzynarodowych festiwalach muzycznych (jak na przykład występ na Fun Fun Fun Fest, który pojawia się w filmie Terrence'a Malicka Song to Song) i jeździć na trasy do tak odległych miejsc na ziemi jak Indie, Jordania, Cypr, Egipt, Liban, Irakijski Kurdystan, Zjednoczone Emiraty Arabskie. Satan’s graffiti or God’s art? dowodzi klasy Black Lips jako zespołu który przez wiele lat zmieniających się dookoła trendów i zajawek pozostał sobą. Dźwiękowo urzekający i precyzyjnie podany, jest jednym z prawdziwszych i bardziej urzekających albumów w historii zespołu.


Cocaine Piss

Nie możesz założyć zespołu Cocaine Piss i jednocześnie być zbyt poważnym, prawda? Byłoby to równoznaczne z nazwaniem twojego dziecka “Kick Me In The Head Throughout Life Whenever Possible Smith”. Nie jest to najlepszy pomysł z żadnej perspektywy. Ale odkąd w 2014 roku w belgijskim Liège zostało, w ramach żartu w złym guście, powołane do swojej pokręconej egzystencji Cocaine Piss, członkowie zespołu nigdy nie zdążyli się zastanowić nad drobnymi szczegółami, takimi jak posiadanie nazwy zespołu, którą można spokojnie wypowiedzieć publicznie, lub po prostu mieć z nią związane jakiekolwiek dalsze plany. Po prostu obrócili silnik rakiety z sikami i patrzyli, jak wystrzeliwuje, a zanim się zorientowali co i jak, leciała już wysoko.

Najpierw stali się ważnym elementem Walońskiej sceny alternatywnej muzyki, potem ruszyli w Europę i zagrali w jej wszystkich zakątkach ponad 400 koncertów. Potem dwie płyty nagrał im jeszcze Steve Albini i zanim się zorientowali minęło pięć lat. Gdzie teraz zaniesie ich niepowstrzymany żółty strumień? Tego nie wiemy, ale na pewno chcielibyśmy tam być! Bądźcie czujni, bądźcie mokrzy, bądźcie żywi!

Black Lips

Atlanta flower punk pioneers Black Lips have announced that their first album in three years, Satan’s graffiti or God’s art?, is set for release May 5on Vice Records. Produced by Sean Lennon at his studio compound in upstate New York throughout 2016, the album is the group’s most musically evolved to date, while still staying true to their original blistering take on fuzzy, dirty rock n’ roll.

During the recording the band isolated themselves from the outside world, infusing the album with a focused liveliness similar to the spirit that brought them together in the first place. On Satan’s graffiti or God’s art? founding members Cole Alexander and Jared Swilley teamed with former guitarist Jack Hines (who played in the group from 2002-2004) and recent additions Oakley Munson on drums and Zumi Rosow on saxophone. The album also features contributions by Saul Adamczewski of Fat White Family and guest vocals by Yoko Ono.

Black Lips were born of DIY ethic, working their way from sweaty basement shows in Georgia to huge crowds at international music festivals (including a performance at Fun Fun Fun Fest that appears in Terrence Malick’s forthcoming film Song to Song) to tours in such far flung locales as India, Jordan, Cyprus, Egypt, Lebanon, Iraqi Kurdistan, the United Arab Emirates, and many more. Satan’s graffiti or God’s art? vindicates Black Lips for sticking it out through many years of shifting trends and buzz bands; a sonically captivating document that is as creatively unhinged as it is precisely executed, one of the rawest and most expansive albums in the band’s storied history.


Cocaine Piss

You can't start a band called Cocaine Piss and be serious at the same time, can you? It would be the equivalent of naming your kid something like Kick Me In The Head Throughout Life Whenever Possible Smith. It's not exactly the best commercial boost to a new thing. But ever since coming into twisted existence in 2014 in the Belgian city of Liège, pretty much as a bad taste joke, Cocaine Piss never really had time to consider such fine details, like having a band name that you can safely say in public, or just having any kind of plan for anything. They just revved the engine of the piss rocket and watched it launch, and before they knew it, it was flying sky-high.

Pretty soon the band became an important name in the Walloon alternative rock scene. Not because they held serious meetings with important people, or because they meticulously traced a conquest schedule on their spreadsheets. No, the band's method has always been showing up and whipping up a chaotic mess with their high octane blend of punk and noise that's all over within 20/25 minutes. It's like Dead Kennedys, Bikini Kill and Melt Banana all playing at once while really high on their namesake substance, right up until the venue cuts the power and everything's suddenly over, leaving you euphoric, disoriented and punching walls just for fun. The atomic energy of their hit and run shows inevitably started to get some attention from bookers and press within the splash zone of Flanders and the Netherlands and so, like a crass joke that you can't stop from spreading, Cocaine Piss started to spread their fluffy wings across Europe too.

Those that were there when they were unleashing their first whirlwinds of snot and pee might have thought it was unlikely to get even more savage, but over 400 gigs all over Europe will have an effect on a band no matter how good they are to start with. Leaving stinkbombs from Norway to Portugal, from Lithuania to the UK, from enormous outdoor summer festivals to squats and tiny basements and everything in between, the Cocaine Piss live precision bomb is now fully refined and of greater impact than ever before. Not only that, but their own sound has also grown in the process. The initial boundless energy is still there and then some, but like toilet paper rolling across the floor, all kinds of other nasty things have started to stick to them. Strands of fast hardcore and 80s noise rock (think Mudhoney, Big Black) have rubbed their nasty little heads on the newer songs and made them all the more furious. Also, there is one fan in particular whose attention they've attracted that has turned out to be very important – a certain Steve Albini, with whom they have now recorded two full-length (which, for Cocaine Piss, means around twenty minutes) albums, The Dancer and Passionate And Tragic. We're sure that wearing their t-shirt while winning a World Series of Poker event worked as a lucky charm for him.

Cocaine Piss are also a great example of the many things you can accomplish while not being an asshole. Their music might be nasty, provocative, dirty and mean, but their message is always a positive one that should leave a mark as deep as their riffs will cut. Gender equality is the main thread in their work, and they always make it a point to collaborate with young and promising people. The art director chosen to take care of all the visual aspects of this latest release (album cover, photography, videos) is Laetitia Bica, who earned her stripes in the fashion business. As you could already see by the My Cake video, she has fully embraced the colourful rainbow, diving deep into the Cocaine Piss universe. Together with Thierry Tönnes she took care of all visuals that will accompany the sonic chaos.

All of this in just five years, and yet, it feels like they're just beginning. With an unwieldy bunch of dates already announced, where will Cocaine Piss point their unstoppable yellow stream next? We don't know, but we'll love being there when it happens. Stay tuned, stay wet, stay alive!
