FunFunFun Fest Artist: Black Lips

Written by on October 7, 2014


The Black Lips, a punk garage rock band formed in Georgia and going strong since 1999, will be performing in Austin Texas at FFFF.

The Black Lips think of themselves as entertainers more than musicians. Cole Alexander, singer and guitarist for the Black Lips, will gladly get a crowd dirty for shock value.

In the beginning of the band’s formation, Alexander says, “To make up for our lack of musical skills, we’d put on crazy shows. We’d get naked…pee in the crowd. That kept ’em entertained.”

The band even got expelled from India in 2009 for indecency including stripping nude and kissing each other. They were forced to leave the district of Chennai or risk being jailed, so they cancelled their tour and fled to Berlin.

Expect to see crazy antics at this year’s show.
