Never thought way back in 04, when these dudes were freaking around Que Sera (or wherever it was), the possibilities for them would be truly endless. Now its 2011, and the Black Lips are the Blues Magoos of their day: hanging out at the top of the popular teenage consciousness, but still able to knock out some unreconstructed rock & roll. Mark Ronsons producing them, and they headline cruise ships, but they still sound like the Bomp! Records band they started asfuzz, snot, boom-boom-chk drumsand they still look pretty healthy, too! All these guys need to do is get Phil Spector to produce them, and they can retire with every box on the list checked off.
