We Did Not Know The Forest Spirit Made The Flowers Grow
Released on May 18, 2004
Here is THE BLACK LIPS' second serving, and it really rocks! The album is packed with great songs, great noise and great fun. Dont miss this garage masterpiece by Georgia's favorite depraved sons! THE BLACK LIPS are one coagulated, drunken orgy of electric squawking and irresponsible, violent, existential jokes. They have tapped into that elusive vein in rock and roll that so many others can't seem to find: totally depraved mayhem which many forget rock and roll is supposed to be about. Rock and roll is fuck you and that glowering rocket ship ball of energy that is youth. Banned from the 40 Watt in Athens, GA, trashing their own equipment and setting the drums on fire, to rumble with high school punks and gutter punk squatter skunks, they toured the East Coast leaving a wake of chaos, destruction and Burger King wrappers, raging out their van and everything they own, consuming copious amounts of beer, beer, and more beer.
