Black Lips

Bad Kids (Vice)

Black Lips

Black Lips are Johnny Cash for the noughties, in that they perfectly define what it is to be a cold-hearted son of a bitch, and ‘Bad Kids’ is their anthem. It’s the sing-song taunt of a scoundrel who can trace the lineage of both sides of his family back to the devil, delivered with a retro charm that always stays just the right side of kitsch.
