we have here is pretty much old-school hard rock from the 80s
club era, though the band is very much alive in the "now",
according to press clips from sources such as L.A.'s Rock City News,
Ingenous Rock, KLOS 95.5 FM, and others. The essential sound of
Slippery Lip is not too far off the beaten path pioneered by the
likes of Motley Crue or Poison. It's evident right from the
beginning, on this 3 song EP... first track, "Chain
echos the past in the reincarnation of vocalist Vince Neil, executed
and channeled by a female singer named Stacy Lip. On the other side
of the vocal coin, however, Stacy Lip also has much in common with
the likes of Beth Hart. Mostly because of the bluesy, nasal
deliverance, especially on last track "Breathe".
Excellent musicianship and high octane rhythms throughout
this CD is true evidence of what all the press is saying about their
live performances... "The sound is dynamic, whole and strong.
Stacy Lip puts her strong, sexy and versatile voice over blood
pumping beats" reports Celebrity News Magazine at a past
pre-release party at the Whiskey A Go-Go in Hollywood. Lead vocalist
Lip definitely has loads of energy and a real passion for the music
throughout "Rock Hard". Track 2, "Bad"
sustains the energy with a hardline beat and full throttle axmanship
by guitarist, Lacy Action. J.C. Nelson is also well equipt to hold
the foundation down with steady powerful percussion and added cymbal
magic and charm.
Speaking of charm, that seems to be the main ingredient most
talked about in the press. Especially the stage presence of Stacy
Lip. Track 3's "Breathe"
is my favorite song on this disc. The collective accomplishments of
a throbbing bass from Larry Anderson, a mesmerizing guitar by Lacy,
Nelson's hard drum assault, and a stellar vocal performance by Lip.
Rock and roll may change it's face through the course of time, but
some..., frequently in the L.A. club scene, hold on to it's 80's
roots with pride, at this moment, it's being played out by Slippery
