Lipstickin' a Pig
1 girl - 2 guys - 3 chords. After a decade of blood, sweat & feedback, Blister, a Raleigh NC based garage punk trio, have become a fixture of the under, underground scene. The bands bare-knuckled delivery, gripping lyrics and lively performances garnered them early comparisons to a post-Nirvana version of the Ramones. But make no mistake, with the release of their new CD, Lipstickin' a Pig, Blister has clearly captured their own distinct sound. Blasting out 13 tracks in just over 30 minutes, they blister through (pun intended) a fist full of garage punk and hard rock anthems. Add to that a bone rattling rendition of the Ramones classic Rockaway Beach, and this CD not only defines what blister is but sheds light on where they might be going.
