(all members play the melodica)
The Lisps tend to write songs about important ideas such as piety, forgiveness, destiny, reality, twins, documents, growing old, time, loving, and babies. They play songs that make you laugh and ponder and want to have sex and punch someone in the face, and be quiet sometimes. Many of their songs have a tremendous amount of words that go by extremely fast.
The Lisps are male, except for the girl, who, although she has a boy’s name, is female.
Two members went to boarding school together, and you know what that means. Two members, although from the same hometown, met each other three years ago and fell in love, friendship-wise. Two members, although they went to college together and maybe had a few conversations then, fell in love years later, romance-wise. At any given time, at least one member is in love with at least two other members.
Their influences vary widely. Their parents are big ones, though.
Their parents are:
Small Business Owners
All of The Lisps are Caucasian and American (one is "Latino") and two of them actually have lisps, though slight. One of the Lisps is Jewish and feels very strongly about raising his/her kids to be well aware of their religious/cultural heritage. The other Lisps totally respect that impulse.
