bAd bAd - Bad Bad LP
After a year or so of playing hyperactive spaghetti western instrumentals and now based in Oakland, bAd bAd started incorporating other influences: the pop-infused punk of Jay Reatard, one-chord Hawkwind power jams, Soft Boys-style psych, and the highbrowed playfulness of the Suburban Lawns. Disparate sounds, yes, but bAd bAd turns them into exciting buzzsaw pop with Barrett/Floyd interludes. bAd bAd started recording their debut album in 2015, perfecting it until it became a seamless psychedelic pop piece of punk energy. This is addictive stuff!
bAd bAd has released a couple cassettes and a 7” on Grabbing Clouds. They’ve played with everyone from Guantanamo Baywatch to The Men, and play regularly with their pals CCR Headcleaner, The World, and Terry Malts. Already with a strong local following, bAd bAd will be touring the West Coast in November 2016 and the US in Spring of 2016.
