Once upon a time there was a DIY punk rock and soul band called the BellRays. They did it all themselves and that made for a lot of very hard work. One day Lisa said “I’m so tired of doing all of this very hard work. I need a way to make it easier.” Bob said “I know a way to make it easier. Let’s do a funk rock and soul band with 8 people. Six of which will be in a completely different country than we are and speak a different language.” Lisa said “Okay.” That is how Lisa and the LIPS were made.
