On August 30, Tulsa punk outfit Broncho will release its debut LP Can’t Get Past the Lips on vinyl through CQ Records and Guestroom Records. Bug Digital will release the album digitally on iTunes, Amazon, Spotify and digital stores worldwide.
Broncho has garnered early praise for its take-no-prisoners live performances and its studio debut is an appropriately aggressive companion. Harkening back to punk rock’s glory days of the 70s, Lips captures the aggression, DIY authenticity and youthful exhilaration of a bygone era and then drags it by the hair into the Here and Now. With echoes of The Replacements, Iggy and the Stooges and The Ramones, it’s a blisteringly cathartic 20 minute flash of Ben King’s gritty, crunching guitar work supported by an assaultive rhythm section (Johnathon Ford on bass, Nathan Price on drums) and made whole by frontman Ryan Lindsey’s yelping vocals that morph moment-to-moment from sardonic to vicious, humorous to pleading.
