Bad Grammar release new single ‘Clown’ b/w ‘Who’s Yer Mate?’ with Flatpack Records
Stream ‘Clown’ below
Slack syntax and gargantuan riffs unite in Manchester’s dirge rock duo, Bad Grammar. Part furious distortion, part ferocious percussion, lead track ‘Clown’ has all the mean girl sass of lead plastic Regina George as guitarist Ben Forrester spits scathing witticisms over their lunch trays: “You say your appetite is insatiable / Sweetheart, your make up is terrible”.
Recorded in the Black Country with Ryan Pinson (responsible for similarly gnarly duo God Damn’s most recent efforts), this latest set of recordings follows a pretty hectic 2014 for the band who released their debut EP ‘Forced Fun’ and were handpicked by party punk king Andrew W.K. as part of last year’s Y Not Festival. They also popped up at Brighton’s Great Escape, Dot to Dot and Southsea Fest. With their last single ‘Temper Temper’ clocking over 25,000 Vevo views, it’s not surprising the pair have already picked up coverage from XFM, 6Music and Radio 1, along with recent new music features in NME, Clash and Artrocker.

“A blend of grunge and punk reminiscent of Fugazi and Shellac that puts many of the current wave of musical duos to shame” – The Ruckus
“Guaranteed to get the music-bods talking with their gloriously grimy racket” – The Tipping Point
“Little more than drums, guitar, electricity and shouting, Bad Grammar’s frenzied live shows have cut a swath through venues across the land. The duo’s flair for fusing frenetic, blazing riffs to warped melody is entirely distinct.” – Clash Magazine
