Baddies launched themselves onto the unsuspecting public with their debut single ‘Battleship’ back in November 2008, a sound that can only be described as ‘Queens of the Stone Age wrestling The Hives on top of a locomotive’ (BBC). Hailing from Southend in the wake of acts as varied as the Horrors, These New Puritans, Scroobius Pip and Get Cape. Wear Cape. Fly… acts far too varied to be corralled into anything remotely resembling a homogeneous “scene”. Despite having only been around for 18 months, they have quickly gained a reputation for riveting live shows brimming with live energy.
