• bad for lazarus Life's a Carnival, Bang! Bang! Bang! (CD, £12.50)

    label: 1234

    Pitted as the South's most bombastic and vicious live act, it's a bold outfit that tries matching Bad For Lazarus' attitudinal and aural sucker punch. Five-piece BFL are tacitly rescuing dispirited music lovers from a mire of one-dimensional pop vomit, half-baked rock cut outs and have-a-goes that all too readily litter the floor of the UK's music scene. Completing their line up back in November with garage ghoul, Andrew Knightley fronting keys and samples, the boys casually enlisted a few industry heavyweights for the making of their upcoming album, 'Life's A Carnival, Bang! Bang! Bang!' enter the likes of Darren Beale (Kosheen) and the legendary Chris Goss (Queens of The Stone Age, UNKLE) whose respective black magic give tracks such as Billiards and Disco Biscuits (For Breakfast) their throaty gloss. The band's gloriously frenetic LP features BFL's first single, My Muddle, which scaled NME's video poll to hit the No.2 position back in November 2012. “An adrenalin shot straight into rock’s heart” - Q Magazine. “A stunning self-produced debut LP, a hot-blooded psych-rock assault on the senses” - Music News. "With an impressive disregard for sounding like anything thats been released this decade, Bad For Lazarus just want to bring the rock and bring it hard. Harder than us and harder than you" – FHM. “So, so, so cool” - Craig Charles, BBC 6 Music. Tracks: Tos And Fros/ Caught In The Twist / My Muddle / No Cigar / Disco Biscuits (For Breakfast) / Got Your Nose / Bad Stallion / 7 Minute Itch / Old Rats On A New Ship / D For Conversation / The Twenty Four / Billiards
