In Session With Girth…Black Lips
Published on: July 9 2015
“What’s More Punk Than Pissing Off The Punks?”
As an interviewer I didn’t ask that question; it sill came up in my conversation with Black Lips.
This conversation held in the back of the Horseshoe Tavern went off the rails quickly. That’s a good thing. An interviewer will bring questions, maybe some analysis…a pattern worth exploring to the table. Thing is you can’t get stuck or rigid totally determined to stick to the script.
If you’re ever interviewed don’t “answer” the questions you are asked…tell the stories and share the observations you want to share. That’s what the Black Lips did. Smart, in yo face, sass…a breathtaking range of topics all filtered through punk rock. I didn’t stand a chance.
When it was all done…I wanted to do it again!
