BAD INFLUENCE


BAD INFLUENCE draw as much from early 80s political anarcho punk as they do from late 80s UK thrash, and the end result doesn't sound like either - but totally rules. Personally I prefer the female vocals, and it seems that she is not a part of the reformed, modern version of BAD INFLUENCE (too bad), but these tracks will power you through your doldrums regardless of the vocalist's gender. Nearly 45 minutes of late 80s political Belgian hardcore that will power you through your day and then some.  You are thinking to yourself "I don't need this...whatever, this shit ain't really all that good and besides, I got enough punk." And I am thinking that you are foolish, and that this is your loss.

Cool post! Seen it, heard it but never owned it. Seen them live with this line-up & the male vocalist who still plays with the band. Different sound indeed!

80's BAD INFLUENCH sounds much better than the recent stuff they made.have you got something from BRUTAL SOCIETY The band before BAD INFLUENCE ca. 1983-1984.
