Billy King & the Bad Bad Bad

Billy King & the Bad Bad Bad - Possession of Paul Revere

"Billy King & the Bad Bad Bad, like their name suggests, have a fascination with 50s grease and teenage lawlessness. Pegged as "surf rock from hell", the local's songbook is certainly populated with chthonic monsters: werewolves, reapers, and demons all make appearances. Like a band lifted from the screen of a malt shop horror, Billy King is a carnival of fun, evoking a bygone era of rebellion, Marlon Brando, and beach parties. While their acid-baked garage rock undoubtedly recalls bands like The Oh Sees and Ty Segall, Billy King & the Bad Bad Bad manage to emerge from the deluge of reverb n' overdrive as luminaries, using their unabashed appreciation of 50s kitsch to forge new pathways."
