Product Description

Product Description

International pressing of the bands 2005 album. Do Me Bad Things is a nine piece rock band that sound like Queens Of The Stone Age having a tussle with Electric Six, Mary J Blige and Fleetwood Mac. WEA.

Amazon.co.uk

Sure, they lack the crotch-low catsuits and Freddy Mercury facial hair--but on YES!, Must Destroy signings Do Me Bad Things aspire to similar pinnacles of shamelessly dubious taste and antique rock indulgence as their megastar labelmates The Darkness. No arguments, this is a pretty weird band: a nine-piece from Croydon – at least some of whom appear to base their fashion style on Edward and Tubbs from The League Of Gentleman--Do Me Bad Things blend the down-tuned stoner rock vibe of Black Sabbath with operatic warble, Electric 6-style absurdity, and the occasional motivational soft-rock numbers (see the rather overblown, possibly tongue-in-cheek closer "Hold On"). Cowbells, novelty synths, and extended guitar solos all make an appearance, meaning that you'll only be able to enjoy the likes of "What's Hideous" if you like your pudding somewhat over-egged. But the likes of "Time for Deliverance" and "This Song Rides" deploy enough to-be-classic riffs to hook in even casual listeners. So long as they come primed for a little silliness, they'll have a grand old time. --Louis Pattison

Do Me Bad Things, are a Rock/Blues/Jazz/Funk/Soul nonet. YES thats 9 band members, YES thats five genres and YES it works!
The mix of genres and amount of vocals (a possible 8 vocalists in the group) make this band's music pretty complex and but they pull it off marvelously.
There are three main vocalists in the group who appear on different tracks, Alex Prowse, a strong male vocalist who can reach incredible heights with his voice, Chantal Brown, a Joss Stone like singer with the ability to belt out amazing melodies and 'The Woods' an ACDC like singer whose gritty voice seems to clash with the rest of the group but in fact compliments the other singers perfectly.
However the main strength of this album is it's individual songs, 'Time For Deliverance' and 'Liv Ullman on Drums' are excellent with driving guitar complimented by superb backing vocals. 'Off The Hook' and 'Hold On' are slower paced melodies but show the band can handle a slow down in tempo while keeping their unique complextity. The best track is without a doubt 'What's Hideous', a soulful and funky duet between Alex Prowse and Ms Brown which changes tempo and style seemlessly.
The arrangement of the tunes are intresting also. The composition strays from your standard verse chorus and bridge set-up with arrangement as complex as the band's sound and the layout of the album itself is another strength, starting fast, slowing down, regaining speed with the gritty voice of Mark Woods which ends with a cresendo of vocals in 'The Daily Grind' finishing with a slow balld in 'Hold On'.
Do Me Bad Things are without a doubt going to be one of the hottest new bands this year and they have potential for even greater things than this outstanding debut album.

Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I first bought this album following a couple of reviews that has compared Do Me Bad Things to the Scissor Sisters. The album came home, went in the stereo for a couple of plays and was relegated to the CD rack while I returned to playing the Scissor Sisters album. As far as I could hear, the comparisons were unearned. It was only later I realised that it was only a comparison of style, with the 9 piece band from Croydon only sharing the Scissor Sisters flamboyance, rather than their musical influences.

However, just recently looking for something to put on the stereo, the album came back from the shelf. This time, I was hooked straight away and the album has been on constant play ever since. I suspect that because I'm not looking for something akin to the Scissor Sisters to play, I've been more open minded to "Yes!" and was able to listen to the album as a Do Me Bad Things album, rather than as something I'd prefer it to be.

It's virtually impossible to classify an album like this. There are influences from all over the place, from pop through hard and soft rock, into quite soulful and funky music in parts. Whilst the influences are by no means unique, the combination of so many of them into just a single song certainly is.

This is an album you need to approach with an open mind. It's not like anything you've ever heard before yet, at the same time, there are parts of almost everything you'll have heard before in here somewhere. But if you go in expecting to be able to compare Do Me Bad Things to any single artiste, you'll be narrowing your expectations and be disappointed. If you come in with a broader view, it's likely the album will delight, in part if not as a whole.

Id never heard of this band until I heard a few tracks in my local music store and had to hear more.
Its got everything if I was to try to describe them , think The Darkness meets Scissor Sisters meets skunk Anansie meets early Queen, and you wont be far of the mark.
Its over the top, it rocks, its funky, its one huge opera!!. What must this lot sound like live!
BUY WITH CONFIDENCE.

not gona say too much except how pleasantly suprised i was to find that do me bad things isnt some crap scissor sisters rip offs as they look like.
ull be instantly glad to have purchased this album when a nifty drum beat gives way to a blast of heavy guitar which gives way to a twisty strum and riff, and then a great subtle voice which is suddenly drowned by a gorgeous female backer. all this in the first minute of opening track 'Time For Deliverance'. And thats before a slash/homme -esque solo and frantic final dash. amazingly the rest of album is just as good, in fact seems to grow stronger with every track.Its as if the scissor sisters have crashed a queens of the stone age rehearsal and grabbed the mike with a new found lust for blood. sound awkward? its the most satisfying, comfortable listen iv heard all year. foo fighter riffs drift into disco pop and back into blasting rock chorus singalongs. this album needs some serious recognition.
its especially effective if uv been finding urself somewat dazed by the high profile of recent rock groups killers, franz, scissors, queens, bloc party,kaiser chiefs, babyshambles, keane... do i like arty rock? raw, gritty rock? gay rock?
do me bad things is the antidote. a grand mix of all these and more, the best parts of all the best albums of the year so far and thrown together into something worth more then the sum of its parts. just listen to the way the angry verse of 'The Song Rides' fades into a gorgeous, catchy, chorus repeating, 'the water under the bridge is freezing'. and then the way this song leads into the wondeful 'Off The Hook' is breathtakingly beautiful.
I could speak forever about the genius of this album but it would be better to let the music speak for itself. if u dont adore this album, its hard to imagine u like music at all. or at least life affirming rock music. this is a killer formula.
