'Best Of'   

-  Label: 'Stolen Body'
-  Genre: 'Indie' -  Release Date: '2nd March 2018'-  Catalogue No: 'SBR045'

Our Rating:
Bad Pelicans are a "Svrf Pvnk" 3 piece from Paris and this first full length release compiles the best songs from demo cassettes of the last three years, all of which have been re-recorded.

They weave elements of slacker punk, lo-fi garage pop and even horror surf into their sound to maximum effect. It seems to me that the French are doing this DIY garage stuff better than most at the minute and while most people in Britain remain ignorant of this, Stolen Body Records are on to it and are making sure we get to hear it!

The sound of Bad Pelicans is not dissimilar to Dr Chan although they are capable of being even more noisy ("Svrf Your Coffin" and "Pavline Mc Shit") and even more poppy ("Svmmertime" and "Covch Pizza").

Axl Rose once told me living vicariously was a "fvcking waste of time" but seeing as I never have been nor ever will be as cool as Bad Pelicans, I have no choice but to continue listening to this record and living that way.
