Bad Beach were a tiny, provincial band who only released 2 minor selling albums. So small you can't even find them on torrent sites any more (obligatory RIP oink and what.) I do have mp3s of those 2 albums I managed to find somewhere though.

You know how some people, or some books, or some movies, or some ... just seems to completely fit you. Well Bad Beach was one of those. Those 2 albums got worn out.

Anyway I was checking out discogs as you do and stumbled across them and holy fuck a compilation was released in 2012! You'd assume it was just those 2 albums or a greatest hits, but it also includes some demos. One of them from 1995 - long after they'd split up.

It's impossible to put in words the feeling of finding 4 never before heard tracks from such a small band that had such a big impact. I had goosebumps over and over again listening to that whole compilation, only to hear those new tracks for the first time ever right at the end. p * u * r * e * * * J * O * Y

Sorry it's a spotify link - I can't find any other links you can listen to (because of course you want to listen to my adolescence...)

Bad Beach : Seasick - Tales from the Deep

This week was an AWESOME music week.
