Divinyls: How Ya Gonna Keep Em Down On The Lip Farm?

Laura Fissinger, Creem, September 1983

THERE'S A new entry in the Battle of the Australian bands; they're called the Divinyls and they stand some chance of winning the war. There's also a new entry in the Battle of the Celebrity Lips, a clash which Divinyl Christina Amphlett stands a superb chance of winning. Kinski, get ye back to your bad movies. If the Divinyls ultimately fail to do-be as good they could be, Christina will at least be remembered for her oral pulchritude. Oh, yeah. The one with the LIPS.
