BAD PEOPLE: The First Seven Inches: Cassette

This cassette, as you might’ve guessed, combines two seven-inch singles. Both are straight-ahead, no-frills punk bashers, with a smattering of background keys and maybe a little bit more fuzz in the mix on side one—the band’s earlier stuff. The most noteworthy, and awesome, bit of this tape is the vocalist, who, depending on your ears, a) is singing actual words in a fake British accent b) is singing complete gibberish in a fake British accent interspersed with an occasional cuss or three, or c) has invented a new language specifically to be sung in this band. Me, I hope it’s “c.”
