IDOL LIPS: Love Hurts: 7″

Here’s another high-energy, late-‘70s influenced pop punk EP. The sheer predictability of the choruses is enough to illustrate my point. Take the track “We’re Desperate” and guess what the lyrics to the chorus are… “desperate, desperate, desperate. We’re desperate.” Don’t get me wrong, these three tracks pack the fun. I’d say this 7” would fit nicely between The Briefs and The Stitches with all of the Idol Lips’ blues influenced guitar riffage they have going on.
