"Lipstick Homicide, this is your life!"
Okay, most of you young'uns won't get that joke. And this isn't about their life so much as their music career. But I just couldn't past the chance to say that!
Seriously though, with Rachel leaving her hometown of Coralville for the bright lights of Minneapolis, it seem like a good time to look over the career of Lipstick Homicide.
So similiar to the show "This Is Your Life", this episode features friends and collaborators of Lipstick Homicide talking about the band. Part 1 featuring pretty much the work they did in 2009 and 2010. Just click here to see what the folks all said or on each song to see what they had to say there.
I hope you find a few surprises and treats you weren't expecting or didn't know about!
A big thanks to Trevor Treiber, long time friend of Rachel, Kate, and Luke, for all the help he gave me on getting this all together. Go check out his band, The Blendours!
Also, thanks to KRUI and Griffle TV for letting use their recordings of Lipstick Homicide live.
Finally, there will be a separate episode between each part of this retrospective. Not everyone is a fan of pop punk, and I want to still give them something to listen to. So Part 2 will be appearing around the end of July.
