The Black Lips are set to release second album 200 Million Thousand (isn’t that the name of a terrible Bon Jovi best of? Well something like that). The album is due on February 24th in the US, so 20th here. From first indications, it could well be better than their REM-infused earlier records. I live in hope. (Thanks to a reader for clarification, I better check out those other two albums!)
Also, if you look closely at the cover art, you can see a face between the lines. Read between the lines or somesuch, no doubt.
