The Bad Vibes do not play punk rock music. Fuck you. Punk’s not dead. It just sucks now. The Bad Vibes are not down with your “anti-punk” stance. Nor do they respect your anti-“anti-punk” scene. They’re not retro. They’re not down with your retro scene. They’re not on Clear Channel. They’re not on WMMR. They destroy you. You thank them. Someone needs to clear out all these corpses so’s I can get right up in front of the stage. Rock. What is rock? Blues. What are the blues? 4 men. “Shake you all up… Put you in yer place.” This town is dead. The Bad Vibes make “war on you”. Anti-core core. The Bad Vibes hate your everything.

This review originally appeared in the Fall 2002 Issue of WKDU‘s Communique, as well as the Steel Cage Records’ website around the same time.  WMMR is one of two big classic rock radio stations in my hometown.  I will always think of this band and their explosive shows fondly. When they stopped playing, Philly got boring again.  Hail, hail rock and roll.
