Fuzzed up to the eyeballs and obviously fuelled on a love of all things 60s and lo-fi, Bad Cop don’t just play garage, they sound like they were born in one and are still living there.
Bad Cop: Harvest The Beast
Channelling the spirit of Blue Cheer.
Star of this particularly greasy psyche ’n’ roll show is vocalist Adam Anyone, whose reverb-drenched howling is perfectly complemented by some suitably unhinged, needles-in-the-red guitar work, topped with sound effects beamed in from the planet Freak Out.
Picking top tunes from the mayhem is a ridiculously futile task – it all sounds gloriously chaotic, everything teetering on the edge of catastrophe – but the choppy Judas The Snake and ultra-cool Time After Time do offer a distillation of what Bad Cop are capable of.
At just under half an hour, this is a furious and frantic set that leaves you wanting an encore.
