Black Lips Good Bad Not Evil on LP
The Black Lips' 2007 breakout hit album, Good Bad Not Evil epitomizes all that's special about Atlanta's favorite flower-punk sons; their unconfined energy, undeniable songcraft and unrivaled showmanship are all on full display.
The material ranges from dirty psychedelic blues songs about Holy World War 3 (“Veni Vidi Vicci”), outright pop hits like “Katrina” (written the night the band found out that the Hurricane of the same name had devastated New Orleans) and “Bad Kids” (based around certain band members’ experiences with juvenile detention centers). There’s also the bruised, tender album closer “Transcendental Light.”
Good Bad Not Evil was produced by the Black Lips at The Living Room studios in their hometown of Atlanta, aided by the band’s friend Ed Rawls.
