LIPSTICK PICKUPS/BIKINI BUMPS: Split 7″

Lipstick Pickups start off on side one and you feel the snot shooting out from the noses of their dual female vocal attack. The music is a garage-soaked rock’n’roll fun time. I flip the platter of vinyl to listen to the Bikini Bumps. They play a raw, early ’80s OC surf style of punk that is snotty and edgy. The stripped down recording does them justice. Two unknowns (at least to me) put out a great sample of their music, which is worthy of your hard earned dollars.
