11.04.2014 – Copenhagen Psych Fest is coming up

psych fest endelig line-up 500In two weeks the first Copenhagen Psych Fest will take place at Spillestedet Stengade. With 45 live bands on 3 stages in 3 days in a small venue it can only become an insane experience. Bad Afro will be represented by 3 bands: THE JANITORS from Stockholm will play their first show in Copenhagen. With ”Drone Head” The Janitors released one of the most interesting psych albums of 2013. In a time where psych bands seems to pop up everywhere “Drone Head” stood out with it’s dark, fuzzy and sinister vibe. The Janitors have often been compared to early The Jesus and Mary Chain, Spacemen 3 and Loop but they twist and turn their roots into a much more evil and disturbing drone. It’s noisy, monotone and simply brilliant! They will release a 4-track 12” on Bad Afro in September in connection with their appearance at the Liverpool International Festival of Psychedelia. LORENZO WOODROSE is a wellknown figure on the Danish psych scene. With a background in psych pioneers On Trial he has been boss in Baby Woodrose since 2001 and is frontman in Spids Nøgenhat who currently are doing very well in Denmark. At the Copenhagen Psych Fest Lorenzo will play one of his rare solo shows that usually are quite intense even though it’s acustic. TELSTAR SOUND DRONE released their debut LP on Bad Afro in June last year filled to the brim with feedback-ridden psychedelic rock as well as slow heavy psych. The band features an all-star line-up of Hans Beck and Mads Saaby from Baby Woodrose, Hobitten from Spids Nøgenhat, Christian Norup from Bite The Bullet and Sean Jardenbæk. Telstar Sound Drone are currently working on their second album to be released late 2014/early 2015. The festival will take place April 24th to 26th – get your tickets HERE

23.03.2014 – Open for sale – the new Bad Afro shop is finally ready

BW-lorenzo-bobler-palle 325The Bad Afro Bandcamp-based shop is finally open! At the moment you will find all available releases as well as the classic Bad Afro t-shirt. The plan is to have much more merch from bands like Spids Nøgenhat, Baby Woodrose and Telstar Sound Drone and special editions and rarities you will only find in the shop. Future pre-sales will also take place in the shop and it is the plan to stock plenty of releases which are close to being sold out or deleted so the shop will be the place to look if you have missed out on something and it’s hard to find elsewhere. The very last copies of Baby Woodrose – Light Up Your Mind 7”, Telstar Sound Drone – Comedown LP and The Setting Son – Before I Eat My Eyes & Ears LP are in stock now but will soon be gone. Check it out HERE Lorenzo Woodrose photo by Palle Demant.

15.03.2014 – New Baby Woodrose album out on Monday

On March 17th Baby Woodrose will release a compilation album of vinyl 7” b-sides and rarities collected from various releases from the past 13 years. Besides b-sides and split singles released on Bad Afro Records the album includes b-sides from singles released on Swedish, French, Norwegian and Greek record labels. It also includes a cover of “Beat City” by The Raveonettes.

You can listen to the full album below except for the Raveonettes cover.

Most of the songs were recorded by the original line-up of Lorenzo Woodrose (vocals/guitar), The Moody Guru (bass) and Fuzz Daddy (drums). That goes for the self-released debut 7” on Pan Records which originally was released in only 300 copies. The two songs – 6654321 and That’s How Strong My Love Is – comes from the very first studio session Baby Woodrose did as a band, only a few months after the release of the Blows Your Mind album which Lorenzo Woodrose released on his own.

The probably most interesting session included here is five songs recorded pretty much live in the Black Tornado studio during the making of the Chasing Rainbows album in late 2007. It was the last recording by the original line-up but the songs never made the album but ended up as b-sides instead. The first five songs on the album documents that session.

This collection of songs from the 14 7” singles Baby Woodrose have released so far is made for the fans who don’t collect vinyl singles or are not willing to fork over the cash for the often rare and expensive singles of which most are deleted years ago. First edition on LP is limited to a 1000 copies on black vinyl and is already sold out from the Bad Afro manor. A new edition on red vinyl is on the way. Photo by Magnus Cederlund.

17.02.2014 – The Dandelion 12″ is called back

It turns out that there’s a small scratch in the song Borderline Originality Disorder and it’s present on the entire pressing. People who already have the 12” can return it in the shop where they bought it or keep it since the first print will be really rare. What a bummer!!

06.01.2014 – Lorenzo Woodrose comments on Kicking Ass & Taking Names

BW-kicking ass coverMarch 17th Baby Woodrose will release Kicking Ass & Taking Names, a collection of b-sides and rarities compiled on LP and CD for the first time. Here is what Lorenzo has to say about the release: The single B-side is becoming more and more of a forgotten artform now, but I’ve always felt there was a certain charm about them. Somehow it’s simply in the nature of the B-side to open up for casual experimentation. They can offer an alternative view of the artist or contain something totally off the wall which can have a deeper quality or stand the test of time better than the more commercial attempt of the A-side. I can still remember picking up a cheap copy of The 1910 Fruitgum Company’s Simon Says 45 at a fleamarket many years ago and not expecting much from it until I flipped it around and had my face melted off by the psychedelic popgem of Reflections In The Looking Glass, which to this day is still a favourite of mine.

The tracks contained on this compilation represent the outskirts of the Baby Woodrose universe, from weird cover versions like 6654321 by The Troggs to 2 minute punk outbursts like A Good Day To Die, but what they all have in common is the uncommitted energy and instant excitement of an adrenaline kick. Some of them were created on the spot in the studio (Live Wire comes to mind) and others were meant as album tracks, but ended up as outtakes for one reason or another. They have been recorded over a number of years, in different studios and by different band lineups, mixed at different stages by different people and released by different labels from all over the world, so the sound might vary slightly, but they also represent a unique archival history of the band, compiled here for the first time.

Most of the original 45′s were pressed in very small quantites and are now nearly impossible to find. The best example is probably the very first and self-released Pan Records single, which was printed in 300 copies and currently books as high as 200 euro! The two tracks – 6654321 and That’s How Strong My Love Is – came from our very first studio session as a band, only a few months after the release of Blows Your Mind (early 2002).

The most productive and musically interesting session however, is possibly the last one we did with the original line up of the band, some time during the making of Chasing Rainbows. The work of this weekend is represented by the first 5 songs on this album, which were pretty much recorded live in Black Tornado, probably late 2007. I’ve always felt these tracks are some of the best performances we ever did in the studio. Lorenzo Woodrose December 2013.

13.12.2014 – Spids Nøgenhat – Best album of the year in Danish newspaper Politiken

Spids Nøgenhat aalborg 2013The biggest and most influential newspaper in Denmark called Politiken has named the new Spids Nøgenhat album Kommer Med Fred the best Danish album in 2013. Woohoo! The band is doing very well in Denmark right now and have just completed 4 successful shows around here. Now it is time for a break until the summer festivals are coming up. More info about that later. Still not familiar with Spids Nøgenhat?

05.12.2013 – The Dandelion 12″ EP coming up February 3rd, 2014

Dandelion 300Bad Afro is launching a series of 12” EPs in 2014 and the first release will be a self titled 6-track EP by The Dandelion from Australia. The Dandelion is the solo project of Daniel J Poulter, the former frontman of The Dolly Rocker Movement. Bad Afro released the third Dolly Rocker album Our Days Mind the Tyme in 2010 and has since then also released two 7” singles.
Poulter has moved from Sydney to the country side as he needed a bit of loner time to work shit out and get back into making music again. Here there is more time for music and less distractions. The Dandelion is sort of a continuation of his former projects Los Sundowners, Kill City Creeps and The Dolly Rocker Movement where all his inspirations melt into one sound. Poulter is playing all the instruments himself on the EP and recorded the songs on a four track cassette machine and an old ADAT recorder. He also did the artwork. Currently a band is being formed and live shows will follow soon.The six songs on the EP are taken from a very limited CD release called Strange Case of the Dandelion that Poulter released on his own in Australia. The EP is limited to 500 copies on black vinyl. Listen to Here Comes Love HERE

telstar 2013Since the release of their debut album Comedown in June 2013 Telstar Sound Drone have been working on other projects. The great bar Kronborggade 3 is also a record label and they have come up with the idea of releasing a 3 x 7” single with a bunch of Copenhagen bands doing a song that must be only 1 minute long. Telstar Sound Drone is a part of the project. No release date is confirmed yet. Telstar is also working on a 7” release on the Copenhagen label Subsuburban and as far as I know it will contain some of the freakier moments of the band compared to the Comedown LP.

All you have to do is answer the following question: What year did Telstar Sound Drone play at the Roskilde Festival? Send your answer to badafro (@) badafro.dk to enter the competition. Deadline is June 1st.

1st prize: Telstar Sound Drone LP, LP test press, Mirror Pieces 7” and t-shirt
2nd prize: Telstar Sound Drone LP, Mirror Pieces 7” and t-shirt

30.04.2013 – Telstar Sound Drone LP delayed for a week

We have been forced to delay the release of Comedown for a week. New release date is June 3rd, 2013. The reason for the delay is that it now takes up to 3 months to make a LP which is about double up compared to 18 months ago and it makes it difficult to plan ahead. My pressing plant is working in 3 shifts already so vinyl is back for real in case anyone wondered. If the thesis of supply and demand should make any sense more pressing plants should be the result and hopefully productions times will be better in the future. Anyway, Telstar Sound Drone will play a show at Studenterhuset in Copenhagen June 1st (facebook event) along with ET Tumason and Fuzz Daddy (Spids Nøgenhat) will be spinning records. On the release date June 3rd there will be a reception at Café Svejk (facebook event) at 19.00. I say it all the time, but they have some of the best beer in town!

23.04.2013 – Little Steven vs. Baby Woodrose

For the third time he has announced a Baby Woodrose song as “The Coolest Song in the World” on his syndicated Underground Garage radio show. This time it’s the b-side from the new single called Bubblegum. Check out the playlist or listen to the show here

17.04.2013 – New Spids Nøgenhat album coming up

In October Spids Nøgenhat will release their second studio album entitled Kommer Med Fred (roughly translated to We Come In Peace). The album will include 7 or 8 original songs in Danish with titles like “Mere Lys”, “Lolland Falster” and “Spids Nøgenhat i Græsset”. The album was recorded in 3 days and the band recorded the songs live in the studio.

Spids Nøgenhat (which translates to the magic mushroom Liberty Cap) was originally formed as a side-project in 1998 by Henrik “Hobitten” Klitstrøm, Morten “Aron” Larsen and Uffe “Aramis” Lorenzen (Lorenzo Woodrose) who at the time all were part of the Copenhagen based band On Trial. A band that since has led to numerous offshoots like Baby Woodrose, Ghost Rocket, Dragontears, Black Beacon Orchestra and lately Blind Owl & Good Spirits.

Spids Nøgenhat was inspired by Danish acid rock bands like Alrune Rod, Røde Mor and Furekåben and played a few shows in the early years as an accustic guitar trio. In 2001 they released their debut album En Mærkelig Kop Te (A Strange Cup of Tea) on Orpheus Records that did not receive much attention at the time but since then has grown into a serious cult album with several reprints on vinyl.

The band resurrected in 2009 after public demand now including Anders “Moody Guru” Skjødt and Anders “Fuzz Daddy” Grøn, who both were in the original line-up of Baby Woodrose along with Lorenzo, and Sebastian “Zeppo” Bülow who contributed with the great visuals that always give a special vibe to the Spids Nøgenhat shows. A legendary concert at Roskilde Festival in 2011 later turned into the live album “De Sidste Her På Jorden” from 2012.

Bad Afro Records will release the long awaited follow up album to En Mærkelig Kop Te in October 2013 and the band will play a few selected shows in Denmark to support the release:

01/11/2013: Atlas, Aarhus (Pre-sale)
02/11/2013: Studenterhuset, Ålborg (Pre-sale)
09/11/2013: Pumpehuset, Copenhagen (Pre-sale)

25.02.2013 – Listen to the new Baby Woodrose 7″

The new Baby Woodrose single is to be released April 1st containing two exclusive songs originally recorded to be included on the Third Eye Surgery album from 2012. But the songs did not fit in, not because of the quality of the songs but the mood of the songs was just too different compared to the final album. Light up your Mind is an uplifting song about regaining strength while the flipside Bubblegum is a tight Kinks-type rocker.

Light up your Mind is dedicated to the memory of Ralph A. Rjeily. Lorenzo Woodrose wrote on his website: “Ralph was my friend, technician, producer, booker, soundman, tourmanager and travelling companion since 1996. He died last year after a yearlong battle against cancer. I miss him.”

Light up your Mind is limited to 600 copies on black vinyl but is also available as download.

28.01.2013 – Website fuck up

I am very sorry that this site has not been updated for what seems like ages. The reason is a freak accident that means that I am not allowed to update the website from my computer, my girlfriend´s computer or the computers at work. Frustrating? Yes!! I hope for a solution soon.

28.01.2013 – Upcoming The Dolly Rocker Movement 7”

There has been a little quiet around the Australian band The Dolly Rocker Movement since they released their third album Our Days Mind the Tyme in 2010. Main man Daniel J. Poulter moved to the US for a while and when he returned to Australia he started a new band called Kill City Creeps.

But Poulter has not completely forgotten about The Dolly Rocker Movement which is why Bad Afro is proud to present a brand new 7” EP. Your Side of Town is a slightly melancholic psych pop song with vibrant guitar licks and cool organs while Silently We Sung has a more quirky beat miles away from the usual garage thang.

The 7” single is featuring a bonus track compared to the download version in shape of “Girl of the 13th hour”, a cover of the obscure Texas garage band Chaz and the Classics from 1967.
