The oldest and most stylish Black Lip, Ian St. Pe, has got himself a side project called theFixedFocus.
The band’s first demo “Movin’ On Up” has a slick “Big Black Baby Jesus of Today” heavy guitar rhythm on top of a light reverb laced guitar. And features lyrics you’d expect from St. Pe like:
“Needed peace of mind/Oh hell yeah I got more than a lot/Laying back, feeling good/Doing like I’ve always done.”
“Can you hear that sound?/ Can you move it around?”
“Am I ready? Ready as I always was.”
“Question, am I all right? All right? In fact, I’m doing gooood.”
