Bad Guys are Stuart (vocals), PJ (baritone guitar), Dave (guitar) and Mark (drums) and they’ve been going for about two years. Their first gig was a ‘pop-up’ show in a packed chalet at ATP and as PJ says, “We didn’t really have any songs back then but just wanted to make a racket and show everyone a good time, it went surprisingly well, one of the Melvins’ drummers was even trying to get in through a chalet window coz it was too rammed to get in through the door”
‘SUP met up with them at the Supernormal festival in Oxfordshire where they were discussing the unsuitability of their 2 p.m. show time. It was unsuitable because of their lack of sleep, but mainly because they’re the type of band who get a crowd excited and dancing and look good under stage lighting. By 2 p.m. more drinks had been drunk, brains were beginning to frazzle with hallucinogenics and Dave was naked.
The following film is what unfolded during that confusing, lost weekend.
The band have just finished recording their first full-length record – to be called Bad Guynecology, which as Stuart informed me, was a name he came up with right after they decided on the name Bad Guys. They’ve been sitting on that pot of gold for two years.
Other releases include the Hips 7-inch from 2009 (Everyone We Know Records) and they’ve just had some killer shirts printed designed by Victoria Sin, on her Victory label.
