Badd Energy - How Do You Sleep

Badd Energy

How Do You Sleep

On the brink of releasing their anticipated second record ‘Underwater Pyramids’ local noize foursome Badd Energy are celebrating with their new single ‘How Do You Sleep’.

The surreal and unsettling video is the brainchild of Auckland director (a.k.a Moppy and Wilberforces band-member) Thom Burton.

Badd Energy are a psychedelic mix of guitars, drum machines and genres. Sam Moore, Coco Solid, Trixie Darko and J.Suave make up this trippy quartet that kick out motley jams blending stoner-swamp riffs with laid back 808 raps. Their single first ‘Third Eye’ hit #1 on both Bfm and Radio 1, Dunedin in 2011 and was followed by second track Ba-Zing which also reached #1 on Radio 1.

Underwater Pyramids is set for release in February 2013 on Flying Nun Records.

Upcoming Badd Energy shows:
December 1 - BOX: Revolution Girl Style Now, 10pm. $7/$10. 8 Wigan St, Wellington

Scoop Review Of Books: The Typewriter Factory

I finished reading Don’t Dream It’s Over not long after it came out last August. I even started writing a review, which took something of an ‘I’m sorry people, but it’s already over’ approach.

Howard Davis Review: Dick Frizzell At The Solander Gallery

One of the most influential and celebrated contemporary Pop artists working in New Zealand, Dick Frizzell is mostly known for his appropriation of kitsch Kiwiana icons, which he often incorporates into cartoon-like paintings and lithographs. Not content with adhering to one particular style, he likes to adopt consciously unfashionable styles of painting, in a manner reminiscent of Roy Lichtenstein. More>>

Scoop Review Of Books:
Looking Back

Writing a memoir that appeals to a broad readership is a difficult undertaking. As an experienced communicator, Lloyd Geering keeps the reader’s interest alive through ten chapters (or portholes) giving views of different aspects of his life in 20th-century New Zealand. More>>

Scoop Review Of Books: Purple (and Violet) Prose

This is the second recent conjoint publication by Reeve and Stapp; all to do with esoteric, arcane and obscure vocabulary – sesquipedalian, anyone – and so much more besides. Before I write further, I must stress that the book is an equal partnership between words and images and that one cannot thrive without the other. More>>
