Melbourne’s Bad Vision have taken their frenetic punk down a notch and added a bit of pop, a lot of jangle and a slight bit of twang to the mix. The pop concoction “Goons” from their forthcoming LP, Turn Out Your Sockets, comes in sounding rather close to RSTB fave and recent entry into our ‘Most Overlooked’ list, Thomas Function. In the same fashion as their American counterparts, the Aussies pin driving country-tinged jangles to explosive choruses full of tales of bored suburbanites and its endless fun to shout along to their declarations that they “don’t want no good advice.” The track’s got anthemic written into its seams and if the rest of their upcoming LP is half as fun as this opening salvo, then I’m certainly upright and paying attention.
