Glasgow Musians' Biographies: Bad Bad Men

Photo: bad bad men. Bad Bad Men are a Glasgow based band consisting chiefly of vocals, guitar, piano, double bass and drums but also on occasion bringing in additional strings and brass. Drawing their musical influences from the worlds of country, rock and pop, their sound has evolved over their brief history into something wholly unique yet commercially viable. Comparisons have been drawn with Bruce Springsteen, Tom Waits, Johnny Cash and Arcade Fire to name but a few.

The band have played in a number of noteworthy venues (both as headliners and as support to such acts as Sparrow and the Workshop, Le Reno Amps, Cuddly Shark and Bruce Watson of Big Country) across Glasgow and Edinburgh, as well as venturing further afield, taking in Ayr and Aberdeen,.

Bad Bad Men successfully sold out EP launch nights for both their self-titled debut and their follow-up release "Bones, Bones, Bones". They have also played a live set as the featured artist on local radio station Sunny Govan Switchback, and have been played and interviewed on other local stations.

Towards the end of 2009 they featured highly in Glasgow's King Tut's monthly Your Sound Competition, placing 2nd in November. Bad Bad Men's latest EP, "Mr. Satan's Amorous Advances" will be out later in 2010.
