Folk-Punk: God's Little Monkeys - Lip


Some people consider much of punk rock just cruder, less-developed heavy metal but to me a lot of the best punk sounds like amped-up, sped-up, riled-up folk music.

God's Little Monkeys (more here), the English folk-punk band previously known as Malcolm's Interview (more here) bade farewell to the world with the 1991 album Lip, a slightly more contemporary (read: commercially palatable) version of their sound.



It's a nice little record with hummable songs like "Hollywood or The Humber" and some more bass-centric tunes, like a cover of The Temptations "Ball of Confusion".



If you appreciate the music the bloggers you visit regularly post, then I would exhort you to comment - such feedback is the very oxygen of the blogosphere.

Speaking of comments, that is the section wherein you will find the Lip link.

(Since I have been unable to fix track four on the Malcolm's Interview album, I have added a link to the original .flac file in the comments.)
