MP3 The Bastards - Welco
13 MB PHP File - Platform: MP3

The first studio album by the Hong Kong indie band was a distillation of all the self-penned songs from the live set up to that point with influences from just about everything on the not-so-subtle side of rock and pop from the â60s onwards.

âThe Bastardsâ formed in 1990, in a haze of alcoholic nonchalance and a devil-may-care enthusiasm that almost made up for a craven fear of performing in front of an audience. A bottle of Jack Daniels is an excellent cure for stage nerves.

Originally a 4-piece, the band soon expanded to five members with the addition of a second guitar.

First gig we played was with three songs and no band name. Rhodie the bar manager had to chalk something on the sign outside the pub and knew a little about us, so âThe Bastardsâ it was. Actually, it started off as âPike and the Bastardsâ, but Pike picked up his drumsticks and cleared off to Bangkok.

Musical influences cover everything on the not-so-subtle side of rock and pop from the â60s onwards. The Who, Sex Pistols, Ruts, Hendrix, Neil Young, Nirvana, AC/DC, plus a host of others which faltering brain cells have difficulty recalling at the moment â weâve played âem all, and, presumably, been influenced by them when we started writing our own stuff.

âThe Bastardsâ earned their reputation as a hard rocking live act, playing the Hong Kong circuit and venturing to other venues in SE Asia.

The first album, âWelcome to the Royalâ, was released in 1996. It was a distillation of all the self-penned stuff from the live set up to that point.

The second album âScheming in the Backroomâ was released in 2008. It was recorded in the back of a shop over a weekend and then worked up in Yellow Frog Media under the watchful eye of producer/engineer Rob Porter.

The current lineup comprises Dave Green (bass/vocals), Tony Greenwood (drums), Mark Harrison (guitar), Dan James (vocals), and Jim Shorthose (guitar).
