habe vor ca. 2 Wochen den deutschen Vertrieb mal angemailt, jedoch keine Antwort erhalten.

das Album habe ich mir dann über itunes gekauft ...

& es sind sicherlich einige Highlights drauf vertreten, aber für ne Top Wertung reicht es nicht.

so hab jetzt auch die "good bad not evil". natürlich wieder viele hits drauf, aber kommt meines erachtens nicht ganz die "let it bloom" heran.

ich dachte mir immer, dass die black lips das potential haben um das nächste große ding werden. aber irgendwie ist daraus nichts geworden. tja schade. vielleicht bei der nächsten platte. außerdem wurden die ersten beiden platten wiederveröffentlicht (rotes und pinkes vinyl - hübsch).

Also ich bin von Good Bad Not Evil total begeistert. Kenn sie erst seit dem Album, fand es irgendwie komisch dass die im NME Album des Jahres geworden sind. Aber war so ne ganz nette Endeckung.

Pascal
15.07.2008 - 17:19 Uhr
Wenn Dir ihr neuestes Werk am meisten zusagt, würde ich eher empfehlen, mich rückwärts durch die Band-Diskographie zu schlängeln;) Das erste Album bspw. hat die Surf-Anleihen noch nicht derart ausgeprägt wie das 2005er Let It Bloom oder eben die letzte Platte und ist noch deutlich punkiger.

Fern ab würde ich Dir aber auf jeden Fall die Strange Boys empfehlen, die Anfang nächsten Jahres ihr Debut vorlegen. Darauf bin ich mal verdammt gespannt.

15.07.2008 - 18:17 Uhr
die let it bloom ist bei weitem die beste. nur hits drauf.

Ich hab mit jetzt mal bei amazon das Album ( jeden Song leider nur 30 sek. ) angehört, würde es aber gern nochmal ganz hören, bevor ich mir das Orginal kaufe. Habt ihr ne Ahnung wo man ein paar Songs downloaden könnte, ausser bei Itunes usw.?

Die Sachen von den Strange Boys auf deren Myspace Seite haben auf jeden Fall potenzial! BIn ich auch mal gespannt!

Stylus fasst den Unterschied zwischen Let it bloom und God bad not evil in meinen Augen sehr gut zusammen.

....that very spirit of teenage rebellion that made this year’s live LP Los Valientes del Mundo Nuevo engaging, and it’s all over Good Bad Not Evil, an album whose character is similarly infectious even as it’s simultaneously less forceful. That lack of bite, the snarl and hiss and yowl that ensconced Let It Bloom, the Lips’ 2005 masterpiece of swamp-gurgling voodoo, is also why hardcore enthusiasts could see this as a small disappointment. Though they haven’t lost their charm, the lo-fi experimentalism of their earlier output is behind them. (.....)It would be a stretch to say that the Lips are now a pop band, but it also goes without saying that they’re not doing anything new, which Let It Bloom undoubtedly was. Its genius was taking the sound of the ‘60s, its production trademarks, song structures, and topical concerns, and pushing their boundaries. Vocals would slur beyond recognition, the grime of the rhythm guitar was so murky and all-encompassing that it achieved near-shoegaze levels of atmosphere, and so when that chiming lead came through, oh so small but crystal clear, it was that much more resonant.....

Hi guys, how is the new album going?

It’s gonna be a bit more ‘lo-fi’ than our last album and less polished

http://www.blacklips.co.uk/interview.html

Da kann man ja nur hoffen das sich die alte Black lips Magie und die vom Stylusmagazin so gut zusammengefasste fantastische Atmosphäre wieder einstellt.

Das neue Album erscheint übrigens am 24.02

Neue Single steht online.

Wenn das neue Album diese Qualität erreicht, kann man sich über die nicht schlechte aber im Black lips Kontext etwas zu konventionelle, glattpolierte Platte hinwegtrösten.

Der Song reiht sich nahtlos in die Qualität der anderern grandiosen Opener (MIA-->Der beste Black lips Song überhaupt/ Throw it away / Sea of blasphemy) früherer Platten ein.

The Black Lips vs. India: 1-0


Dear fans,

Unfortunately, we have had to flee the country of India due to
having our whole tour canceled and having to escape being held by
police for indecent exposure during our most rawkus set in Chennai at
the Campus Rock Idol showcase.

After the fiasco, which the kids seemed to like, the financial
backers of the event were furious and threw us off the tour. They tried
to get security to restrain us until the Tamil police arrived. We
locked the door while they were kicking and banging on it. Meanwhile,
we slipped out the other emergency exit.

When we got to the hotel our tour guide informed us that the that
the Campus Rock Idols sponsors were pressing charges and that the
police would make their arrest. At that point our tour driver informed
us we would have to drive six hours to get to the next town and cross
state lines where we would be out of the Tamil authorities
jurisdiction, because apparently the jail in Chennai is no joke. Word
on the street said that it was teeming with tuberculosis, violence and
live maggots so instead of risking going there we fled the scene. ....

Where are you guys holed up right now?
We're at King Khan's house in Berlin. We caught the next flight outta there as soon as the shit hit the fan. Like, we literally left Chennai at 2:30 in the morning and drove 10 hours to Bangalore.

What happened in Chennai? Well, we hadn't had a chance to get even the slightest bit drunk the entire time we were in India, so Jared bought a bunch of whisky before the show. The venue was some weird, shitty auditorium at a college. Things were uncomfortable to begin with; no eating inside, no smoking outside or anywhere really. The show was sponsered by Nokia, Honda, and VH1 and they had these crappy production projections on advert screens on either side of the stage. The college had these wireless mics though, so Jared got jazzed up on whisky and started pumping up the crowd by cursing at them, getting them to repeat things like "When I say 'weak-ass', you say 'bitch'! Weak ass?" "BITCH!" "Weak ass?" "BITCH!" The crowd was eating it up but I think we only ended up playing like, seven songs. Eventually things got really energetic and Cole mooned the crowd then proceeded to kiss Ian while Jared continued ramping up the crowd, which eventually led to him taking a running dive into the audience. Really, our tour manager was the only one freaking out. No one tried to put a stop to the show. We even told the crowd "Remember! there's only four of them (security) and 150 of you." Nice. We tried to get everyone on stage too, but they weren't too happy about that either. In any case, everyone was into it except our manager and his production company Only Much Louder—which I will go on record suggesting that no band go through for a tour. I haven't been on such a disorganized and disfunctional tour in a long time, though in their defense, they are one of the first independent, non-Bollywood promoters in India. But they've got a lot to learn about the biz, like getting contracts from your sponsors and such.

Yeah, that seems pretty fundamental. Do you think that's just India, or you just got a bum deal?
'm sure metal bands, hardcore bands, nu-metal bands, and crap-pop like Creed would do just fine. I would like to think there are punk kids there. There must be. It's a country of 1.3 billion people. We heard about a punk band called Tripwire that kinda sounds like the Ramones but we didn't get a chance to check them out. It must exist somewhere in India though. It's not possible they missed out on 40 years worth of Western music.

No joke. How were the rest of the shows? Pitchfork claimed you were "visibly shaken" after one where people threw bottles at you.
We're not concerned with plastic bottles, it was more the scene at the show. It was in the middle of this dirt field and then all of a sudden you see plush green grass and a red carpet and all this sponsorship bullshit everywhere. There was even some family living in a shack close to the backstage. Ian and Jared had to stay there to judge the "competition," which consisted mostly of metal bands and alterna-rock. Imagine an audience member sitting through six hours of that and then having to listen to us, something completely different.

Were they into it or just like fed up with all the junk-rock?
Oh no, kids were moshing and dancing. There's footage of it on its way to you guys right now.

That sounds awesome, but was it that weird sort of jock-moshing, where it's slightly too aggressive and nowhere near in sync with the music?
Basically yeah. The dudes kinda just run into each other, like how jocks bump chests.

So what happened after the show with your passports?
Well, our tour manager came up to the hotel room and grabbed his luggage (this was after hours of arguing with him about the lost money from the rest of the dates and how they were going to recover it) and he said, "I'm going to go hang out downstairs for awhile." We left the room to shoot some stuff outside for VBS and Cole starting to get a little sketched out about his passport, so we went to the reception desk to get our passports and they told us they had already been collected by our tour manager. I saw him standing outside with this unknown third man and when we approached him for our passports he said, "Oh, they're in this car." They were locked in a car outside and the tour manager was about to leave with this third-party guy who apparently worked with Only Much Louder productions as their "accountant."

Jesus.
So, Rob from VBS bucked up on him and all of us surrounded the car and got our passports back. He got up in his face and was like, "Are you a lawyer? No? Then shut the fuck up. This is only between us and [president of Only Much Louder] Vijay Nair, and you are not him. Now give me my fucking passport." He also said, "I'm not saying this to be a dickhead American but if you want to get into a legal battle over this, we will crush you. Their lawyer is Britney Spears's lawyer. You can't match that!"

Good one.
Now, one might dismiss this as an ordinary miscommunication, but minutes later, we had a phone conversation with Vijay about the money and out of nowhere, third-party accountant man mentions to Vijay, "We gave them their passports back." Which would lead us to believe a scheme had been hatched.

Wow, no joke.
I confronted them about it and why he would have made such a statement. Of course, he denied everything and assured me that "If we wanted to take your passports, we would have done it a long time ago. This is OUR country." He refused to admit that Vijay Nair at Only Much Louder Productions had anything to do with our passports being locked in a car outside, even know he had just informed him that he gave us our passports back. We knew we had to get outta of there as soon as possible. They tried to say we owed them $10,000 at first and finally after hours of having to sit with this third-party accountant guy and our tour manager, going over receipts, the actual number came out to around $3,000. But, in fact, we don't owe them anything because there was no contract.

That's unreal. So was it them who threatened you guys with jail or the cops?
They were paranoid about the Tamil police. I suppose it's a more conservative part of the country.They kept saying if it had happened in Delhi it would have not been such a big deal, but since we were in Chennai they told us that if anyone filed a complaint with the police the festival people would inform the authorities of our location and it would have been about a week dealing with jails and embassies and so on. It's really hard to say what was going on, it certainly wasn't a calm atmosphere. I would like to think that we would have been OK in Chennai and we could have gone on to finish the shows in Calcutta the next day, but the company was so paranoid they booked us overnight cars to drive out of the state. Who knows what the right decision was. Either way, we're outta harm's way now. We were so happy to arrive in Germany, you have no idea

I'd probably be kissing the tarmac after all that.
Basically, yeah
