The Loose Lips
This photo is of Shane White and his fairly short-lived band The Loose Lips from around 2000. Shane had previously been in a few bands like The Spoiled Brats, The Rip-Offs and The Infections and was writing a column for Maximum Rock'n'Roll around the time he started the band. The Loose Lips was a lot more rock'n'roll than his previous bands, which I think was a let down to a lot of his fans. They were very New York Dolls with a little Heartbreakers thrown in. I just put on their "Talkin' Trash" CD to listen to as I wrote this article and it still kinda fails to grab me, but I'm definitely one that like their garage rock to fall more onto the punk/garage side of things than the rock side. Still, live they put on a good show, White's a great frontman.
