Idol Lips- Scene Repulisti LP. Wow this record is fuckin great. Just solid catchy vicious leads atop a wall of thundering bass, backed by some catchy dual vocal chorus. The Stitches took this brand of swaggering screw everything punk rock and made it a house hold name in the underground in the late 90’s. Well the Idol Lips are back to take over the throne with their own brand of spite filled, adrenaline fueled rock n roll. Think loud, raucous and drunkenly in-your-face punk rock in the Humpers, Thunders, Heartbreakers tradition. The songs are awesome but played loose and sloppy sorta way that bring to mind the Berlin Brats. “You Gotta Choose” drags you out of your seat and demands you to dance, and “More Than Fun” is bass-heavy and rollicking in a drunken stupor. “D.T.K.” nods to The Humpers’ “Zombie,” while the opening “Down by L.U.V.” owes a bit to The Candy Snatchers‘ and “Buzzsaw” rocks hard with a full-on Thunders sneer. Awesome record if you dig any of the aforementioned bands. Import from Italy.
