Bad/Dreems might be the best Australian band since Eddy Current Suppression Ring. Well, them or Royal Headache. Or Smith Street Band. Whatever.

ANYWAY. Their new album Gutful is nigh-on perfect… (as I say) it “rumbles with the malevolence of Rundle Mall at 2am, spitting and kicking at a ruling class and confused culture fixated on self-interest and enrichment rather than insight and empathy.”

And make sure you buy it twenty minutes ago, and tell me just how great “Nice Guy” is.

Things that are good: the mid-’90s Seattle Supersonics, the bit in Independence Day when you realise how fucking nuts Randy Quaid ended up being, and Atlanta metal Mastodon.

You can find out just how good I think they are in my feature review of their new album Emperor of Sand for Rolling Stone¬†— in length — right here.
