Bad Secrets - Self-Titled

Dark, weird and generally hypnotic jams from this improv duo. Conceived, recorded and mixed over three weekends in late 2007, BAD SECRETS is comprised of Evan Patterson (YOUNG WIDOWS / BREATHER RESIST / etc) and Dan Davis (KODAN ARMADA).

Built around a guitar, vocal and drums foundation, the lo-fi nature of BAD SECRETS’ recordings work to their advantage, setting an overall mood of drunken, haunted desperation. Patterson’s unique and twisted guitar twang combines with distant howls and Davis’ rumbling, primal drumwork... which gets further mutated by the duo randomly switching instruments. Throughout all this, BAD SECRETS successfully channels the energy & southern soul of blues, the mesmerizing spirit of shoegazer & psychedelia, and the harsher "dropped-out-of-life" elements of desert rock.

Seven varied songs (none over 3:30 long) are crammed onto this 9" sized record on colored vinyl, which comes with an accompanying CD of the same tunes all housed in a silk-screened jacket hand-made by the band members themselves. This first press is limited to 1000 copies overall, and this copy is on "metallic red" colored vinyl. The overall pressing info is as follows:

* 200 copies of "evil eye" (red / white mix with 1 black "planet" insert)
* 200 copies of "pie chart" (tri-blend split of three different pinks)
* 600 copies of "metallic red" (custom "metallic" pinkish-red color)
