The legacy of Canadian Fuzz is in good hands -- The Bad Beats debut album proves it. The lessons from their Canuck grandfathers -- The Painted Ship, Les Lutins, The Haunted, and so many more 1960s legends from the Great White North -- have been consumed, digested and spit out with a new ferocity that dispels for once and for all the social myth that Canadians are polite people.

No, these Bad Beats are nasty people, with nasty sounds -- born quite literally in their garage -- where car fumes, cold beer, a fuzz box and a beat up Farfisa organ have pushed them to blast out the album you hold in your hands right now.

"Knock Yourself Out" is a perfect theme to start the mayhem, equal parts spittle and beer-fueled party fun. "His Vengeful Hand" has a cool voodoo vibe, and "She Don't Talk To Me" will have you bopping all the way to the keg and then back to the dance floor. The BBs also pay homage to the classics, with the Miracle Workers' "Love Has No Time" given a reverent treatment worthy of garage royalty.
Yes, Canadian Fuzz is in good hands. The Bad Beats are here.

An unholy alchemy of rock, country, soul, gospel, blues and punk that go together like moonshine and mason jars, preaching and sinning, Vegas and vice.

Surf/Punk Garage Rock revivalists, Cawama formed in Vancouver BC by the Miron brothers and Danny Pereira in the summer of 2013.
After auditioning many drummers, we invited the talented guitar player Derrick Doll as a guest musician on bass for a couple of gigs, and after a couple of practices, chemistry and groove starting flowing making this move a permanent one keeping Derrick Doll on Bass.
