ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
“Straight up - No frills rock and roll!”
 

The Bad Somethings are a classic era sounding rock band with influences from some of the 70’s and 80’s greats! Growing up listening to such albums as KISS ALIVE!, Highway To Hell, Pyromania and Dream Police you can tell what styles they use to formulate their retro sounds. 


Longtime friends, Kenny Richie and Leo Davidson assembled the band with crazy glue and duct tape... (cause all bands need duct tape.) All kidding aside, and quite honestly the boring truth: it’s just a band who likes writing and recording songs in the style they grew up with. It’s nothing too serious, nor anything too complicated. It’s just THE BAD SOMETHINGS!

*REVIEWS* : THE BAD SOMETHINGS - (self titled) - Squib Kick Records

“Be the voice of the New Generation!” exclaims The Bad Somethings’ Kenny Richie in a big anthem like closing, to end their debut album in fine fashion. From the opening riff of “Yeah,Yeah,Yeah” to the final chorus of “New Generation”, this album oozes seventies attitude and swagger, with just a hint of that eighties style hard rock thrown in for good measure.


Signed to upstart label Squib Kick Records, The Bad Somethings released a single last year called “Along For The Ride” which got some notable airplay on many indie and small radio stations worldwide. Moving forward the label decided to give them a full LP to get more of their music out in circulation. It’s easy to hear the influences on the album which obviously circle around that old KISS sound. I get a good vintage vibe from their debut and it’s easy to hear the band’s style right from the onset. It’s a modern vintage sound. It feels old and at the same time it feels new! Sprinkle a little Zeppelin, Stones and Cheap Trick in the mix and it seems they found the formula to create a modern style, classic rock album!


If you want harmonies, guitar riffs and big choruses along with the ability to hum these tunes in your head for days afterwards...this could be your new favorite band! Admittedly, the vocals are a little rough around the edges but that adds to the distinct flavor of the album. The production is decent. It’s definitely not a big budget, expensive studio sound. (but no matter, it works.) I was surprised to find a nice ditty of a cover song on the album too. “Let It Roll” from Albatross (1975 U.K. band). It fits in well with the whole vibe of the album and it’s great to get an obscure cover in there like this included. If you’ve never heard the original version, check it out it’s worth a listen. The Bad Somethings show some humor in a lot of their songs and “My Bike” is a fine example. “I’m being chased by a chihuahua, it bit my ankle, ow!” reads one lyric line. Rock and roll is all about fun, isn’t it? Why yes, I’ll have another beer and another listen! If classic hard rock is your thing and you’re looking for an exciting new band to scope out, I’d easily recommend giving the The Bad Somethings a spin or three. It’s infectious, it’s gritty, and by all means...it’s rock and roll! (JC)
