Idol Lips “Street Values”

Italian punk rock’n’rollers IDOL LIPS are back with a new album on German record label Wanda Records. Although the band still owes a lot to JOHNNY THUNDERS (“Too Loose”…), you’ll hear some obvious TURBONEGRO influences in “Don’t Need Your Love”, “Waiting To Die Around”, or “Too Loud For The Crowd”, and the band’s snotty spirit sometmes reminds me of The BRIEFS. The guitars are dirty, the choruses are catchy (“Feeling Blue”, “Out Of Control”), and “No One To Blame” brings GIUDA to mind, which isn’t a bad thing at all.
If you miss the 70s NYC punk sound, leopard print, pink suit jackets and safety pins, then don’t miss this album! /Laurent C.
