They’re rock & roll. Wild, drunken rock & roll garage style. They’re the 60′s, 70′s and today all wrapped into one gruff and sexy package I wouldn’t mind unwrapping on Christmas morning.
Compared to the Sonics, the Mummies and the Swingin’ Neckbreakers, but at times they remind of a more 60′s Ramones, and sometimes they remind me of the Stooges (listen to the fuzzy “Kick Out Of You”). The Coffin Lids play rock & roll stripped down to the bare essentials: amazing vocals, powerful buzzing guitars, sexy men and whiskey.
The band adds just enough punk rock attitude in most of the songs but especially with songs like “I’m Going To Have My Way (with 5, 6, 7, 8′s)”, “Teenage Shakedown”
When it comes down to it, it’s simple: they’re fun to listen to. They make you want to get up and do something, pump your fists in the air, break some bottles, anything as long as it’s reckless, loud and a good time – which is exacly what the Coffin Lids are.
Be sure to turn the volume way up when listening to “Teenage Shakedown”, “Whiskey Drinkin’ Woman” (my new theme song of the moment, thanks), “Action” and “Kick Out Of You”.
