|Released July 2012|
OK, back to some fresh offerings! ‘So Bad’ is the new LP from Nashville’s Cy Barkley And The Way Outsiders. Released on Nashville powerhouse Infinity Cat Records, ‘So Bad’ is like a blueprint for 21st Century rock ‘n’ roll. It’s pure punk trash from start to stop. When I say ‘trash’, that’s a good adjective in my view of rock ‘n’ roll. You know, like how ‘bad’ means ‘good’. I don’t think it’s a coincidence that Cy and Co. (fellow Outsiders Josh Shearon and Cam Sarret) named the album ‘So Bad’ because it is sooooo bad! Head bobbing sing-alongs give way to SST inspired mayhem, just to slide back into a fuzz induced melodic arena. The LP spins at 45rpm, which is another bonus. This is a full-length, but the dudes aren’t wasting anyone’s time. Wanna rock? OK, play this record and in less than half an hour you can do something else. Like play it again. Cy Barkley And The Way Outsiders are carrying the dirty rock ‘n’ roll torch along with the likes of Ty Segall and their label bosses, Jeff The Brotherhood. It’s a diverse landscape out there for garage and punk inspired tunes and Cy and Co. are blazing a trail that people need to follow. If this record is your cup o' tea be sure to catch up with the few 7”s they did before this LP. Cy Barkley has a bunch of things going on, but let’s hope The Way Outsiders are his priority uno!
