Brothers and sisters, check out the new Black Lips web site! http://black-lips.com/ Here you can find news, tours, merch, and more! I found a video of Pete Doherty playing a cover of Elvis’ “Blue Suede Shoes,” with the Lips in Stockholm, Sweden from 2006. I hadn’t watched it in years. You can watch it below.
Today marks the year anniversery of the legendary Jay Reatard’s death. Looking back, I remember when Glen informed me of this tragedy, I couldn’t believe it. I thought it was just another one of his bullshit shenanigans, only to discover it was the truth. Sadly, I just started getting into Jay’s music in the six months before his passing. Luckily however, I had the privilege of seeing him live three times and particularly had the pleasure of attending a memorable show during the Shattered Records Tour. Now, a year later Jay still remains my favorite singer and my second overall favorite artist (second to the Black Lips!) and I don’t think that will change anytime soon.
Later today, Glen and I will make more Jay related posts. Stay tuned.
There’s no much content, but if you want to give “Peter” your e-mail address, he will follow up sometime with goodies.
In other news, he went to court for cocaine a few days ago.
“Time For Heroes” !!!!!!!!!
This song came up in a Black Lips playlist I had going on Pandora. While I typically wouldn’t consider the two bands to be of the same musical lineage, they both play with an incredible amount of energy.
