Mark RonsonAtlanta punk band Black Lips are known for embracing their hard-partying ways, but even they would probably balk at being remembered for accidentally killing super-producer Mark Ronson.

But that's almost what happened when their group hooked up with the mixing desk maestro to make their latest album, the NME reports (via Contactmusic)

Ronson teamed up with the garage rockers last year to work on the band's sixth album, 'Arabia Mountain,' but was apparently struck down with potentially deadly food poisoning after some ill-advised thematic catering decisions.

"To get in the mood to record [album track] 'Raw Meat' we started eating all this liver sashimi," Lips singer Cole Alexander explained. "Then we all started getting sick from it. Mark had to go to hospital because his fever was so high. His brain was cooking, man."
