BadaBings is a self proclaimed, “freeform punk outfit”.
Hailing from somewhere on the Alabama/Georgia state line, this trio of troglodytes plays a stripped down version of ska punk that sounds like it has been gurgled up through the southern mud.
BadaBIngs was originally formed in 2012 by Hudson Thompson and Steven Jarvis. Knowing that they both hate cover bands, they decided to form a cover band to play in local bars. They decided on the name BadaBings as it was (still is) the worst bar band name they could think of. After playing music for two seconds they then remembered that they both hate cover bands. They kept the name anyway.
Writing songs influenced by punk and reggae, the duo quickly realized a drummer would be needed.
Enter Marzy Turtle.
The trio recorded a handful of E.P.’s and one full length album before separating in 2014 to pursue other endeavors.
In 2017 BadaBings reformed when the original members retreated back to the south just like in the civil war. Shortly thereafter, Badabings began writing new material. #Bbeautiful was released November 2018 on Cancer Records. The album holds 11 songs that capture the band’s original direction while highlighting who they are now.
