�Who could have imagined that the next potential groundbreaking sound would come from Iowa of all places.� -- Insomniac Magazine


Bad Fathers, currently located in Iowa City, have established an extreme reputation based as much on their offstage performance as for their stunning live sets. Known for their rambunctious partying and frequent nakedness, they have still managed to self produce 6 releases since formation in 1997. Bad Fathers have performed all over the U.S. with acts such as Ja Rule, DJ #0 of Slipknot, Rakim, Atmosphere, Pharcyde, Naughty By Nature, and Sage Francis. Bad Fathers recordings have featured DJ #0, 2002 Scribble Jam Champion DJ Skwint, DJ Vadim, and numerous others. 2003�s Swallow for Iowa vinyl generated a solid college radio buzz, charting as high as #1 on several U.S. charts.

All releases recorded, mixed, and engineered in their living room studio, 6B Mobile/Pimp Chernobyl.
