Bad Sam – Alcoholic 7” (Armistice Records)

Spread the love

Long overdue three track release from South Wales’ resident reprobates and despite their hiatus, it’s a top notch bit of tuneage. The title track and it’s ‘A’ side neighbour Tag are at the speedier punk end of the Bad Sam register with Dean Beddis distinctive warble making the tracks instantly recognisable. Flipside track Looking Back is a much darker personal reflection sounding more akin to Subhumans Wake up Screaming or the Dead Kennedys Saturday Night Holocaust – alternating between a slow & brooding, almost Sabbathy riff and an angry outburst of  frustration; one of the bands strongest songs to date and the highlight of this release.
