Show Review: Bad Cop/Bad Cop at VLHS in Pomona, CA (8-23-14)

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again – Bad Cop/Bad Cop is an up and coming band to watch. I have had the pleasure of seeing these ladies a number of times and their live show keeps getting better and better. Whether they are playing a large festival like Punk Rock Bowling or a small club show in LA, they bring so much energy to the stage. Most recently, I was able to check them out in Pomona, CA at VLHS.

Their smart lyrics and infectious melodies hook you and make you want to dance. Their latest EP, Boss Lady, was released back in April on Fat Wreck Chords and has helped bring them international attention. The band has an active social media presence and have posted recording updates teasing their first full-length. No release date or timeframe yet, but if their EPs are any indication, the album is going to rock.

The show at VLHS was their last US appearance before a European tour (which they are currently on – including some shows with Masked Intruder). The show featured women in punk and Bad Cop/Bad Cop closed the night with their energetic set. During this intimate show, set in a warehouse, they ripped through songs such as “Rodeo,” “Cucumber,” and “Yeah, Yeah, Yeah!” before closing with “Asshole.” The crowd was also lucky enough to hear two new songs – which only makes me more excited for new music and a new album.

I encourage you to check out Bad Cop/Bad Cop if you get the chance and support a great band. Check out the full gallery from their set below!

A Few (Relatively) New Bands at PRB

Note: because PRB hosts several bands stretching all the way back to the fucking 80’s, we’re taking a little creative license with the word “new” here

Bad Cop/Bad Cop
This four-piece, all female ensemble kicks a lot of ass. PRB attendees were treated to a double dose of their punchy energy, first on the main stage and later at Punk Rock Karaoke. The songs are catchy, quick and the point, sweeping up the listener before they even know what hit them. The vocals are a knockout, and song structure is well balanced and tight with all excess fat trimmed away. It’s a sound that’s both fresh and experienced. BC/BC recently released a 7” entitled Boss Lady on Fat Wreck Chords, so go pick it up.

Masked Intruder
Where does love end and the felony begin? That is the subject matter for this incognito four piece, which turns syrupy sweet pop punk into pogo-friendly tales of longing from the far side of a restraining order. Hilarious, fun, and offensive. What’s not to love? Go buy their new album M.I. or they’ll fucking rob you. No, seriously.

Cerebral Ballzy
Hailing from the east coast, CB gives up a classic New York hardcore sound that grinds your ear holes into mush. Undaunted by the sweltering heat, the boys destroyed themselves at PRB, ripping out anxious songs of rebellion and distrust of authority without a single fuck to give. It’s music of annihilation with a hook for insurrection. Look for their new album Jaded & Faded later this month.



Bad Cop/Bad Cop release music video for “It’s My Life”

Los Angeles’ favorite all-female pop-punk band Bad Cop/Bad Cop have released a pretty sweet music/lyric video for their song “It’s My Life” and you can give it a watch below.

The track appears on the band’s latest 7-inch entitled Boss Lady, which was released on April 8th through Fat Wreck Chords. Head over here to read our review of the record.



EP Review: Bad Cop/Bad Cop – ‘Boss Lady’

Last year the four ladies of Bad Cop/Bad Cop were on stage performing at San Francisco’s famous Bear Pride celebrations. In the audience were many admirers of the foursome’s brand of multi vocal punk rock but one audience member had a plan. That plan, based on the sounds coming from the stage, was to sign the band and release a record. A good start, but it gets better. That audience member goes by the moniker of Fat Mike, and the label he wants to release the record on is Fat Wreck. Oh, and that record is this record!

Bad Cop/Bad Cop (consisting of Myra Gallarza on drums, Rinh Re on bass, Jennie Cotterill on guitar and vocals, and Stacey Dee also on guitar and vocals) are born out of the thriving LA punk scene and individually feature or have featured in bands such as The Angry Amputees, The Radio Sweetheart, Cunt Sparrer and Atomic Mom. Their songs are, as previously mentioned, vocally shared and are driven by this harmonious sister act.

The Boss Lady EP picks up from last year’s self titled single release and had impressively already been recorded and mastered by the time Fat Mike decided to welcome them into the Fat Wreck Family. On top of that the EP’s amazing artwork, featuring a six eyed, multi limbed Boss Lady was created by band member Cotterill, these ladies do DIY better than most!

The four tracks on offer are all fast paced, melodic, memorable and leave you hankering for the band’s full length that will be headed our way towards the end of the year. There is a definite cohesiveness to the band’s music, they have their own identifiably unique sound while effortlessly taking bits and pieces from the bands they love and throwing it all down into a hell of a good listen and by all accounts an amazing live show.

The EP starts with “My Life” and if you are completely new to the band then this is a perfect introduction. Acting as a mantra of sorts, the lyrics spell it out with ”I am who I am and that’s what I want to be”, unapologetic and a great opening track. Second track “Cucumber” is probably the most instant of the four and is a song you will find yourself incessantly singing and humming for the foreseeable future, you have been warned. Next up “Rodeo” is fantastic and a song that definitely showcases that much loved Fat Wreck sound. Lastly “Asshole”, the shortest and fastest of the four songs, rounds things off in style, this punk nugget will surely get the most static of audience members jumping around like no one’s watching!

The old adage about time flying by when you’re having fun definitely relates when listening to the Boss Lady EP as it’s seemingly over just like that. Short enough to leave you craving more and long enough to leave the impression you may just have found a new favorite band.

4 / 5 Stars

DS Photo Gallery & Show Review: Me First and the Gimme Gimmes and Bad Cop/Bad Cop in Hollywood (3/18/14)

Me First and the Gimme Gimmes are one of the only bands I know who consistently bring so much joy to the stage. Last week, I was able to see the Gimmes at the House of Blues in Hollywood, California – and if this show was any indication, their new album will. be. amazing.

Opening for The Gimmes was fellow Fat Wreck band Bad Cop/Bad Cop, who absolutely killed it. I hadn’t really listened to them before this night, but I was completely enamored by their catchy songs and powerful musicality (and the lead singer, Stacey Dee, reminds me of a young Joan Jett). I picked up one of their EPs at the show and the new release is set to drop April 1st. I highly recommend you check them out – and if you are lucky enough to be going to Punk Rock Bowling this year, you will have a chance!

Me First and the Gimme Gimmes continue to amaze me every time I see them live. The last time I saw them was two days after Tony Sly passed away, and it was a rather somber affair (yet I feel as though it was a therapeutic place to be for both the band and the crowd). This time, however, their excitement and humor shone through and it was like a big house party on a Tuesday night. As they are always so polite to point out, they did a set of covers (a running joke throughout the night), including a few tracks off of their upcoming album Are We Not Men? We Are DIVA!, which will be out May 13th (“Straight Up,” and “I Will Survive” being my personal favorites). The set also consisted of fan favorites “Sloop John B,” “I Believe I Can Fly,” “Leaving On a Jet Plane,” and “Somewhere Over The Rainbow” as well as a teaser off of Spike’s upcoming ukelele album. I never thought I would see a circle pit to Paula Abdul, but it happened.

Between the stylish (and matching) ensembles, the friendly banter and frequent hugs on stage, and a set that made the sold-out crowd sing and dance along, the Gimmes proved why they are one of the best supergroups in punk. Their shows always seem to go by too quickly, but as you walk out of the venue, you should just start the countdown until you will see them again – because it’s always worth it.
