Screaming Beneath the Waves

by Lo-Fi Nipple

Exploding from the speakers, lo-fi nipple offers a blistering set of modern day garage rock. Anthemic, rousing and inspired, this is the antidote to the antiseptic world of corporate rock.

Album Notes
Since 1998 Lo-Fi Nipple has been playing stripped-down, premium garage rock n roll to small packed bars located along the Olde Highway 101 in Southern California. With artwork, Go-Go girls, and an anything goes live show the boys of Lo-Fi Nipple boil their rawk n roll down to the basics.

Lo-Fi Nipple's release on EARTHLING RECORDS, 'Screaming Beneath the Waves' presents 10 songs that capture the live energy of the band. San Diego's indie rock wizard Mike Kamoo used an old 16 track analog tape machine to capture the energy and warm sound of Nipple's live shows. The album opens strong with YOU WERE JUST A GIRL and continues with songs that range from the surf rocking PHOEBE ST. (The Stooges meet Dick Dale) to the country punk sounding Hooker's Green (written after lead singer Finkbiner painted all the walls of his local dive bar that luscious color). WESTERBERG ends the CD with a rousing 1-live take, 2:OO A.M. rock n roll tribute to The Replacements (the only way a tribute to The Replacements should be recorded). This dirty little CD has captured the essence of one of San Diego's premier underground garage bands and proves once again that Garage rauk n roll is thriving in cities outside of Detroit and New York!

Kopper from The Wayback Machine on KDHX-FM 88.1, St. Louis, MO. says, "Honest, simple, jangly, uncomplicated power pop with just a touch of garage and surf rock to give it that all-important edge and to keep the critics guessing. Think early-Replacements meets The Barracudas with a touch of The Payolas, The Plimsouls, or Gary Myrick & The Figures. Really, similarities and labels aside, this is just some great, passionate, melodic rock'n'roll with songs about girls, California, fun in the sun, and, well, girls. Includes an interesting take on Redd Kross' "Annette's Got the Hits," too. Standouts include "You Were Just a Girl," "Phoebe St." and "Knives." Impressive! Can't wait to hear more from this San Diego band."

Recent review of a live show.
"Not content to be just another four guys on stage with their guitars and drum set, Lo-fi Nipple augments its shows with the glitz of go-go dancers and static visual art. Yet they offer a return to the simplicity of early rock 'n roll. Instead of complexity, the band relies on beat and emotional heat. Lo-fi features honest and relevant observations in their lyrics rather than overreaching themselves with inflated attempts at profundity. You get the impression, though, that they'll work up that mountain at a steady pace, with firm footholds all the way."

How the band formed. John Finkbiner left Nashville and his band The Vacancy to return to his West Coast roots. Finkbiner joined with Billy Rey on guitar, B.J. Scoff on bass, and Ian Scott an English ex-pat on drums. Months later they were opening for Agent Orange. Lo-Fi Nipple is part of the Earthling Records label.

Cruising through old Leucadia on the Coast Highway, Lo-Nipple provides a nice soundtrack for dodging yuppie soccer mom's listening to Dr. Laura in their SUV's.

I love this CD, I play it in the car tons!
When I want to get charged up I put in the Lo-Fi... Great CD, I want to get more of 'em.

Another pert Nipple release.
No fuss, no gimmicks, just great songs, played in the classic surf punk way. Guitars sound great, strong individual vocals and a back beat that keeps the album rocking along. True Love is a true classic, Westerburg must be seen live and the opening track, You Were Just A girl, with the bass and guitar start, could be out of the UK in '77. Garage music? No, take out of the garage and give it a good run down the freeway, you'll love it.

This is classsic Californian surf/punk music, well written and I'm positive this band will go far. The production is very good, and the musicianship very hot. I recommend this band and the company I used to get this CD. I live in the UK and California has found yet more talent. CD Baby were well priced and very fast on delivery as well. Thank you.
