This is the band biography for Baddies. I?m sure you?d like to hear all about the band? how they started, what they?ve done, what people have said about them and what the band have said about themselves. That?s okay. That we can do.

Cast your minds back to January 2007? where were you? What were you doing? Well, if you?re name was Michael Webster (and let?s face it, your name probably isn?t that, but please? work with me okay) you were hatching a scheme, a fiendish plot, a devilish desire? to start DUN-DUN-DUUUUURRRGHHH? A BAND! Yes! A band with guitars and vocals and drums and bass. Holy mother of fucking shitballs! Mike had the guitar and vocals, so far so good? but where do you go from there? Well, if you were Mike you?d go to see your twin brother who just so happens to be a fricking awesome drummer and ask him and guess what? He said yes. Brilliant. But that?s not where the fantastic train stopped? no sirree bob, those Webster twins kept a right on rollin? and they picked up a Simon Bellamy and a Danny

Rowton on guitar and bass respectively. So that was nice.
So there they were. One. Two. Three. Four. And they called themselves Baddies. Not The Baddies, just Baddies. Got it? Good.

After quickly writing a batch of songs, Baddies had discovered that not only were they: (a) pretty darn good thank you very much, but they had (b) discovered their sound. Yep that?s right sound in italics. So what exactly is the sound of Baddies? Hmmm, right okay? well, imagine this? Talking Heads (Good) + Queens of The Stone Age (different, but also good) + being from Britain and all that entails (???) = the Baddies sound (its okay to say ?the? there I think?)

The band worked hard. They gigged. They recorded some tracks, ?Tiffany, I?m Sorry? and ?Battleships? and before long industry types heard them and got all hot and sexy at the very prospect of the band, and industry types love getting hot and sexy, don?t you?

Within months the band were in hot demand, everyone wanted a piece of that Baddies pie. ZOOM! They played Eurosonic in Holland. WHIZZ! They played London Calling in Holland, again! KABLAM! They played In The City in Manchester and shitting crikey they went down a storm! ?I love them? said one guy, ?Fuck me! That was good? said another. Which was great y?know, that?s what Baddies wanted all along, the diabolical little tinkers.

So what would you do? You?re in this band, everyone?s spaffing in their pants because you?re so damn good, where do you go next? You release a single right? Yeah, a single! On vinyl, limited to 500 copies and then you sell them all. Yeah sold out. Can?t get it any more. Sorry. But that?s not enough for Baddies, no no no. You make a video too right? Not a big expensive thing, just a little performance video. Film it, discretely put it out there? see what happens? get to number 1 on the MTV2 / Myspace chart with like zero promotion. That?s what you do if you?re Baddies anyway.

Now Baddies face the next phase, second single and then the debut album which Mike describes as ?an insight into 'the struggle' of getting to where we are now?. The album is their autobiography, a collection of songs that tell the tales of the everyday and then dumping them on their heads and laughing at them in a sort of You?ve-been-Framed kind of way.

Just like all the best bands, Baddies are a gang? a group? a gaggle. They are united. They wear uniforms that say this is us, this is what we do, we are here to do a job. Do the job.

The Sado-Maso Guitar Club....Pop ala Beatles, Psychedelische Garage Tunes zwischen Brian Jonestow Massacre und den Dandy Warhols vermixt mit dem "K" Album von Kula Shaker...
?After touring, playing thousands of concerts and partying for almost six years with my bands The Staggers and The Knights of Good Taste I became tired and exhausted... I got the idea of a new, powerful and mind-blowing band and tried to get my favourite musicians together. The Earl of Krigor (bass | The Staggers), The Animal (ex Staggers drummer), D. (organ, piano, voc | The Scarves), Daniel the Guitar (guit, voc) and me Shakin? Matthews (guit, voc | Staggers) are THE SADO MASO GUITAR CLUB. We play what your ears need! So be prepared for the finest tunes ever. If you don?t like it ? DON?T LISTEN!?
