11:05 Marty Duda's Artist of the Week - The Bads
The Bads consist of Brett Adams and Dianne Swann who currently base themselves in West Auckland. The couple has been making music as The Bads since 2003, but their history reaches back a decade earlier. In the early 1990s they were based in London, and calling themselves The Julie Dolphin, recorded an album full of edgy, indie-rock. Their musical direction has shifted to a mellower folk-rock style, but they still can make quite a noise when they want to. Their latest album is Travel Light.
1. Still Life – The Julie Dolphin taken from 1994 album “Lit” (Timbuktu)
2. Arguments And Alcohol – Boom Boom Mancini (unreleased)
3. So Alive – The Bads taken from 2008 album “So Alive” (Warner)
