The Bidons (from southern Italy) reached out to me via the contact page here at Incognito HQ. Before I even listened to any of the band’s songs, I knew it would be a good fit for Trashy Tuesday. Why? Well, for starters the band’s album is called Granma Killer. Obviously, we don’t condone the killing of granmas or anyone else, but tell me that title doesn’t fit Trashy Tuesday. Also, one of the songs on this album is called “Be a Caveman.” Sold.
Then I heard the band’s eight songs and it only confirmed that my instincts were right. This is trashy lo-fi goodness that is right up our alley here at Incognito. Fuzzy guitar, hard-hit drums and raw vocals accented by solid bass lines. Oh, and some wolf howls in the song “Wolves of Saint August.” I don’t know about you, but I’m a sucker for a well-placed howl in a song. The guys in The Bidons definitely get the garage sound right. If you’ve been looking for some new garage rock to add to your collection, give this band a try.
