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

Editorial Reviews

Garage rock veterans, The Black Lips will following up the widely successful Good Bad Not Evil with the release of 200 Million Thousand. Simple, straightforward songwriting mesh perfectly with the Black Lips distinctive howl to create a
time capsule rife with nods to simple pleasures and a world of worry.

Critics darlings, The Black Lips have received previous acclaim from Rolling Stone, Spin, Filter, Magnet, Stop Smiling, The Fader, Anthem, Paste, and The NY Times to name a few.

Heralded by Rolling Stone as "one of the best live
bands in America," there will be ample opportunity to see Black Lips do what they do best - whip a crowd into a pure ball of drunk, unpredictable energy. After a release week show
in their hometown of Atlanta, GA, the band will embark on a month long tour in March presented by Myspace Music, which will bring them to the Northeast, Midwest, SXSW and the
Southeast. They hit the West Coast for the last two weeks of April.

well i will admit i think this cd is really good and hope years to come the black lips will continue as a band.if you are new to these guys i would start with one of their other cds,this one is a little slower than some of their other records-let it bloom is probably their best record.

The Black Lips are not for looking over the rainbow or beyond the horizon or over the next hill; the Black Lips are for looking back. This is true enough for their latest release, 200 Million Thousand, and if you are cursorily familiar with their older work then you know what to expect here: flower punk (their term) played with sloppy abandon and lyrics about cruising around in cluttered cars, taking drugs, drinking, and other miscellaneous fun. A strain of nostalgia runs throughout the album. For the Black Lips nostalgia is most easily distilled in the time of their late teens, when the novelty of owning a car hasn't worn off and the appropriate response to screwing up is to "drink some more beers."

The Black Lips's sense of nostalgia has never been a drawback for the band, and if anything it has been their reason for existing. Everything from their easily recognizable influences to flat mono sounding production values help transport the listener back a few decades. Some of the songs do this beautifully, such as the bluntly titled "Drugs," about picking up women and driving around aimlessly while, you guessed it, on drugs. Many decry the Black Lips's snot nosed brat personas, but with lyrics that begin with the line, "my nose is a-runny" the Lips have little qualms over this guise. And why should they, it's worked well so far? "Starting Over" melds the easy sentiments of beginning anew sung over the jangly guitars of the Byrds. Like many of the high points on this album, and there are quite a few, these songs give the appearance of an old classic, now forgotten, that has serendipitously made its way onto the radio DJs mix.

If you've never heard these guys, this is not the record you should start with. They're a great band, check out "Let it Bloom" or "Arabia Mountain", it'll give you a better idea of how phenomenal this band is

this group is great. if you like them, you will like this. i suggest you listen to snipets before buying blind, but if you give it any chance at all, it will grow on you. see them live, if possible, and be prepared to be trampled. they drive their crowds berserk
