"Tom Robinson's Fresh Faves - Review of "I Like It, I Like, I" (Single)"

David Lynch seems to get everywhere these days – recordings, films, designing champagne bottles, paintings and now band names. This song is due for release in September and is a little slice of Goth Rock Pop clad in a pair of cherry red DMs. It brought to mind a more punky version of Evanescence with a healthy dash of Veruca Salt. Back when Fresh On The Net was a radio show, Caz Hellbent and Jez Leather were regularly on the programme in their previous duo incarnation as Molloy. The launch party for this single is in Archway, North London on September 22nd at Dusk Till Dawn. - Tom Robinson

Yeah and She Has Red Lips - (Get Down And) Disconnect / We Don't Want To Have To Fight You

Last but by no means least, we finish off this month's round up with a double 'A' side release from a talented up and coming band from London. The Alt-Rock meets New Wave sound on both songs are sublime. (Get Down And) Disconnect is by far the harder and punchier of the two but that Is not to distract away from We Don't Have To Fight You as both show this band have talent, great vocalist and can produce quality music.

"Track Of The Day #229: Yeah And She Has Red Lips Too – We Don’t Want to Have to Fight You"

Taking their name from a David Lynch painting, London’s Yeah And She Has Red Lips Too are a sassy-female led-new-wave rock foursome, whom released a might fine new double single last week: (Get Down And) Disconnect and We Don’t Want To Have To Fight You. Our track of the day is that releases infectious ruminative flip-side: its bubbling synths, explosive drums and sinuous clambering guitar lines are punctuated by yelped ‘Heys’. This fire is lit by the lip curling attitude of flame haired singer Caz Hellbent’s dexterous vocal performance: her refrains are at one moment spat out then knowingly sung like there’s nothing left to lose reminiscent of the attitude of the much missed We Start Fires and at others of the melodic playfulness of Joan Jett.

Apparently Inspired by Francis Ford Coppola’s The Outsiders, it tells the story of misfits and runaways, inevitably drawn to the fight. “When there’s no hope, you’ll find us sleeping on the back seat”, Caz sings, reflecting the anger and despair of today’s lost generation, forced to fight constantly against their will against a society bent on keeping them down. While the marvelous crashing crescendos of the fist pumping chorus line encapsulates this feeling of it being US VS the rest of the world! Watch the video below! - God Is In The TV Zine


"Review of Yeah and She Has Red Lips Too – (Get Down and) Disconnect / We Don’t Want to Have To Fight You"

Quite a mouthful all that title but worth ploughing through to get to the music. Spritely, synthy, new wavey all at once ‘Get Down...’ is a sinewy prelude to the slightly more tender (though not a lot) ‘We Don’t Want to Have to Fight You.’ All is well. 7/10 - Tasty Fanzine

Yeah And She Has Red Lips Too - 'I Like It, I Like, I ', Single

Unlike stuttering title, this flows fluently from Gothic 'red' lips, grappling with ghosts in space and time machine, flitting, floating ,fading, but not quite forgotten, spirits lingering long, clinging to last light, history of place, before it grows too faint; shaken vibrantly awake by new reverberations, rousing revolution, dousing doleful veneration.

Like its video venue, worlds collide in an enticing mix of old and new, Siouxsie style Gothic Punk, edges rubbed off, meets deviant Devinyls sprayed with inky Blackheart jet; vocal twisted, tawdry but not torn to tatters, guitars skittering, sliding but not screeching off the track, drums rumble in the jungle, to sharply focused, but slightly polite poke; somehow doesn't shatter china but, delivered in doses of clean melodic lines, full of fighting spirit utterly engaging, like gorgeously luminous graffiti, adorns but doesn't deface. - Mudkiss


"Review of "We Don't Want To Have To Fight You"/"(Get Down And) Disconnect" - Twin singles"

London indie hopefuls and David Lynch fans Yeah And She Has Red Lips Too will be releasing not one, but two new singles next month.

Following up last August’s debut track ‘I Like It, I Like, I’, the band drop ‘We Don’t Want To Have To Fight You’ and ‘(Get Down And) Disconnect’ on March 7. The former is a contemplative. electro-rock mini-epic, contrasting nicely with the frenetic thrash of t’other tune. We’re sitting firmly on the fence as to which song is the best, but we’ll let you make up your own mind if you wrap your ears around said tracks below:

The band will also be launching both singles at Islington’s Hope & Anchor on March 7, supported by Cars Like Sharks. Tickets are on sale here for the exceedingly reasonable sum of £4.

"Review of "I Like It, I Like, I" (Single)"

Owners of the longest and most unusual band name the girls are has heard in donkey’s, London indie hopefuls Yeah And She Has Red Lips Too will be releasing their debut single next month.

‘I Like It, I Like, I‘ proves that the quartet not only have a knack with head-scratching titles, but can string together a hopelessly addictive rock song while they’re at it. Inspired by crumbling tower blocks and dystopian city landscapes, and with more than a touch of the more frantic moments of Blood Red Shoes about it, have a listen to ‘I Like It, I Like, I‘ below:

YEAH AND SHE HAS RED LIPS TOO – I Like It, I Like, I by yeahandshehasredlipstoo

The track is released to download on September 24, with a single release party that you’re exceedingly welcome to attend at London’s Dusk Till Dawn on September 22.

"Live Review - Yeah She Has Red Lips Too @ Bloody Ice Cream, The Grosvenor, London 5 July"

Bloody Ice Cream Present Annette Berlin + Cat Bear Tree + Yeah She Has Red Lips Too @ The Grosvenor, London 5 July

It’s a talent, the way underground promoters such as grrrl noise specialists Bloody Ice Cream, with limited resources and time, relentlessly come up with three bands or more that produce music that is so different. Another thing, the order of the billing does not always relate to Next Big Thing potential; it could be related to how far you travelled, how long you’ve been on the circuit or other. If you are reading this you probably know all that background already. Without you, the girls are would not be able to function in such a consistent, dynamic manner. You’re probably like Caz Hellbent, of tonight’s Yeah She Has Red Lips Too: in several bands, and play more than one instrument with confidence and flair.

Caz Hellbent, red doc martens, red lips, red hair, part of the twin guitar, vocal harmony wave that is YSHRLT, named after a David Lynch painting. Clearly a band personality that is driven by a will to be menacing yet a natural ability for harmonies and song writing. The two opposite characters don’t clash, simply ride the tunes, together. [In our heads, they are riding bare-backed, hanging on for dear life to each other, make-up and hair still perfect.] With time there will be a guitar swell, the confidence to let these melodies slow down, tonight one band member, bass player, is new. That said, the urgency could also be part of the band creature. They – or is it Caz? – has a lot to say, even the song titles are long, like current EP track ‘We Don’t Want To Have To Fight You’ or the last, ‘I Like It, I Like, I’. This is in total contrast with her other Top Tip band Desperate Journalist , who has a rule of sticking to one word song titles. - The Girls Are

Bio

“Eerie in your face analogue rock” (It’s All Happening)

Taking their name from a David Lynch painting, Yeah And She Has Red Lips Too’s post-apocalyptic new wave rock carries you away on a dark tide of what it is to be human.

In the corner, an old portable tv, flickering with static, shows images from a televised war – a delirious accompaniment to the girl / boy harmonies telling tales of nostalgia and the personal as political.

Their irresistibly surging twin guitar and vocal harmonies find beauty behind the broken heart beat of bass and drums, echoing rhythms of long forgotten factory machinery.

In the next room, a Joan Jett-fronted Smashing Pumpkins plays A Night At The Opera behind red velvet curtains. The door is locked. Here’s the key…

** Yeah and She Has Red Lips Too were formed in 2010 in London by ex-members of Molloy. After a couple of years spent writing, recording and gigging, they released their debut single "I Like It, I Like", I in September 2012. Following the launch of twin singles "(Get Down And) Disconnect" and We Don’t Want To Have To Fight You", they are due to release the Lost Generation Suite - an audacious suite featuring recurring musical and lyrical themes through six interlocking defiant new-wave rock songs- in winter 2013, before heading to the studio to record their first full-length album.
