Fake Eyelashes is the latest release by long-time psychedelic soul garage rockers THE CRACK PIPES from Austin,Texas. And with it they've forged another link in a long chain of outsider American rock and roll. Much like underground lifers like Dead Moon or The Flamin' Groovies the band keeps marching to it's own unique beat bucking the current trends and tropes of contemporary music. Veterans of the late-90s early 2000s garage wave The Crack Pipes have remained active in the vibrant Austin club scene overcoming boomtown venue closures, failed labels, the loss due to fire of their studio home base (this is the first album not recorded at Sweatbox Studios) and guitarist BILLYSTEVE's cancer diagnosis in 2007. The first batch of songs for Fake Eyelashes started to take shape in those chaotic years with the final numbers composed earlier this year. The influences range from noise rock icons like Gun Club and Grant Hart to modern garage rock acts Viva L'American Death Ray Music, Reigning Sound, The Golden Boys and back to mid-60s groove and R&B like The Grassroots, T.K. Hulin, Johnny Rivers, Tommy James and then off into the funky kraut rock territory of Miles Davis and Traffic—and while that may sound over the top and the record may sound more polished than past endeavors the band claims that if anything, after 2005's Beauty School, this is a back to basics record.
