Bad Breeding + Gutter Knife + The Snivellers

Dictionary Pudding + Gob Nation present


Bad Breeding formed in the winter of 2013 in Stevenage - a commuter-belt town north of London. Drawn together by an enthusiasm for old anarcho and a complete disdain for the misrepresentation of Britain's working-class identity, Bad Breeding is an attempt to call out the rank injustices and political distortion peddled to people existing on the fringes. Made up of friends who muddled together through state school, the band serves as an outlet from the monotony of labouring work and humiliating temp jobs.

On their latest LP (their second in the space of one year), Divide, the relentless rhythm section drives the sound with guitar work that is squealing and immense alongside vocals that spit bile and razor-sharp lyrics. Standouts include "The More the Merrier" - which sounds like prime Icons of Filth from 1985 whilst last track "Endless Impossibility" is a five-minute-plus dirge that hits hard like Killing Joke but with more noise and chaos. On Divide, Bad Breeding have upped the intensity and made an even stronger album. Rather than being self-released, they have now joined La Vida Es un Mus in Europe and Iron Lung in the States.
