Atlanta's beloved sons the Black Lips were joined by none other than Boy George on Friday to perform a cover of T Rex's 'Bang A Gong (Get It On)'.
Both artists were peforming their own individual sessions at WXPN's Free At Noon concert and joined forces for a one-off performance.
The new Black Lips album ‘Underneath The Rainbow’ is out now on VICE Records. The album started life at Dunham Studios in New York to record initial tracks with Dap Kings music director Tommy Brenneck (Cee Lo, Charles Bradley). The group then decamped to Nashville to record several songs with Patrick Carney of The Black Keys producing, finally rounding out the album with a couple of songs co-produced with lifetime Lips recording collaborator, Ed Rawls. The resultant collection was mixed by Grammy winner Jimmy Douglass (Justin Timberlake, Snoop Dogg, Bjork) and features artwork shot by legendary photographer Mick Rock (David Bowie, Queen, Lou Reed). ‘Underneath The Rainbow’ is, without doubt, the group’s most cohesive effort yet, drawing on all of the wild abandon that makes the Black Lips so special and exciting and channelling the energy into twelve classic songs.
