BAD SAM: EP: 7”

South Wales’ punk stalwarts Bad Sam, are back in action, initially with this single ahead of a new album which will hopefully see the light of day sooner rather than later. Nothing has changed from previous releases and Dean Beddis remains one of the best front persons around; his Biafra-like vocals are sounding even more powerful as he progresses in years. Of the three tracks “Alcoholic” and “Tag” feature the more breakneck approach that Bad Sam excels at, whereas “Looking Back” brings to mind the Jello Biafra/D.O.A. Last Screams of the Missing Neighbors collaboration in its more varied style and sound. Bring on the new album. –Rich Cocksedge (Armistice, [email protected])
