BAD SPORTS - BRAS LP (Alien Snatch!/ Dirtnap)
"Bras" is already the third full lenght by this Texas based trio featuring members of Wax Museums and OBN IIIs. Bad Sports play a kind of music, that sounds like they have remained lost in some long past time. Like the sound of 70s Bomp releases, they remain true to the highest standards of old fashioned rock'n'roll by recalling the spirit of the music from the '50s and '60s. The recordings captures a fresh, energetic approach to powerpop, hardrock and protopunk. Bad Sports fuse the intensity and power of early eastcoast punk groups with a sleazy groove, killer hooks and the ferocity of hardrock. This band definitely knows the gain to be had from a good, powerful guitar riff. For those who are addicted to the music of DMZ, The Dictators, The Stooges, MC5, The Flamin' Groovies, Television, Real Kids and The Dead Boys this album will be your perfect substitute drug! Alien Snatch! brings the European version, Dirtnap is responsible for the US version. (Listen to it here)
