Back before Hastings and the revolving door of record stores in the South Plains Mall, there was Lips Records and Tapes.

Lips was in the shopping center across from Coronado High School, accompanying the space with TG&Y.

FMX used to do all kinds of promotions for concerts over there. I remember we did a "Best Lips" contest and a "Rat Race" where Hot Wheels distinguished as rats were raced for tickets to see...Ratt.  I also remember that we had a Billy Idol look-a-like contest.

This picture is actually myself, Loris Lane and Nat Lamp going through the entries or something. We had a lot of hair.
