Sweet, little ten minute documentary on music in Memphis. At 4:30 you can check out more KLYAM oriented slime with Goner Records, Ex-Cult, Nots, and some good ole’ Jay Reatard.
Black Lips, this damn band needs no introduction around here. Fuck, the name of our site is a Black Lips reference! Boston Black Lips freaks, you’ve been waiting for this moment for three years… on Saturday, April 19 KLYAM’s #1 band is hitting up the Paradise and they’re bringing along their Southern garage punk brethren Natural Child! Been meaning to see those guys live for years!
As you probably know by now, the Lips are releasing a new album on March 18th entitled Underneath the Rainbow and they are voyaging on a big ass tour in support of it. Look below to see if they are playing your city (they probably are).

““A quote that really fucked up my mind is Cole from The Black Lips said, ‘If you have a backup plan, you’re gonna fall back on it.’”
I’m excited to see some local favorites being covered in Vice. Congrats dudes! The article is entitled “The New Highway Hymnal Isn’t Afreaid to Freak (You) Out” and it’s by Luke O’Neil
And if you haven’t heard already, The New Highway Hymnal are playing a single release show for “Out With The Lights” on Wednesday, July 11 at the glorious Great Scott. It’s a stacked line up with fellow rock ‘n’ rollers The Migs, MMOSS, and Creaturos. Damn, I hope to make it out, so should you!
