Wiens Numero Uno Blitzpop-Gruppe BAD WEED spielen mitreißenden Powerpop-Punk mit Schlagseite zum early UK-Sound der Siebziger-Jahre. Das Publikum erwarten mitreißende, energiegeladene Songs, die wohl irgendwo zwischen Alex Chilton, GG Allin und den Shangri La’s durch den Fleischwolf gedreht wurden, dabei weder abgelutscht noch aufgewärmt klingen und sich gegenseitig die dreckigen Haare von David Peel in den Mund stecken.
This album is constantly jumping back and forth through different and sometimes contradictory sounds, sometimes in the same song. Throughout the entire experience, though, some naughty drums are getting beaten, and dirty, dirty guitars are getting strangled. This is high-energy, high aggression music with layers on layers on layers of vocals. “Neighbourhood” is an exemplary track that really shows the band’s range, with an indie dance music feel and angelic vocals giving way to muddy guitars and strained-vocal-chords-style shout-singing. It manages to be menacing and inviting at the same time. “Kickflip” is some skate punk that really makes you feel like it’s going to break into ska at any moment without ever actually doing it. The line “I wish you / Would get swine flu” on “Stay at Home” is maybe my favorite “fuck you” I’ve heard in a song in a while. GOOD COP is a very tight trio that really seems to be having fun while engaging in some good-times mockery of the power structures around them. World Piss shows that you can sound pissed-off any way that you damn please.
