In the late ’70s, The Avengers burst out of San Francisco, establishing themselves as one of the US’s preeminent punk bands. Fusing incisive guitar hooks, explosive rhythms and adolescent venom, the group forged some of the most in-your-face songs of the era. Their live shows were legendary, playing up and down the West Coast and even blowing Sex Pistols off the stage at the latter’s final performance. Byron Coley would reflect that in 1977; “The Avengers were by far the coolest and youngest sounding. They roared without irony, as though this were indeed Year Zero (and, for a moment, it was), with history being overwritten by the new. The honesty of their belief was carried by their sound. And it was convincing!” https://digital.penelope.net/album/avengers
Toronto based garage punk psych rockers, Wine Lips hit the stage for the first time in the fall of 2015. Initially a part time project between songwriter/guitar player, Cam Hilborn and drummer Aurora Evans, the band began playing clubs in Toronto, stretching organically to surrounding Ontario cities, and then Quebec. Wine Lips released their self-titled debut LP on indie label Fried Records in 2017. Never letting the dust settle, the band released their follow up LP “Stressor” in March 2019 and toured North America relentlessly until early 2020. The band spent most of their free time in 2020 writing and recording their third full length record “Mushroom Death Sex Bummer Party” at The Sugar Shack in London, Ontario with Simon Larochette. Wine Lips consists of Cam Hilborn on Guitar and Vocals with Aurora Evans on Drums and Charlie Weare on Bass. “Fuzzy, loud and fast, Wine Lips are a garage/ punk/ psychedelic band whose music feels like a shot of adrenaline to the heart. A no holds barred kind of rock n roll that’ll make you want to buy a motorcycle, just to crash it.” –-Sled Island https://winelips.bandcamp.com/
