BandRockPop

Melodic, catchy, in your face, to the point glam-pop rock. Singer/guitarist Johnny Modern won the Boston Music Awards Discover Award. Songs have been played on commercial, XM, and college radio across the country and in Australia.

Biography

After years of playing together in different incarnations during high school (leading to a Boston Music Award for singer Johnny Modern and his band "Lux"), Johnny, Jeffrey, Jonathan and Nate picked up and left for the city that never sleeps. Under the guise of various titles and genres, the earliest works of Bad Jamie were born in New York in 2002.

Not right for this world, however, the band made their move to where the scene was fresh and the air was clean. Well-written, melodic guitar rock was alive and well in Australia and Bad Jamie felt right at home. Determined to make their own mark, the band organized performances where they felt most comfortable, playing to small over-crowded parties, packed and confused take-away restaurants, commuter rail train carriages, dodgy hotels, and midnight shows atop city buildings.

Bad Jamie were Boston finalists in the Emergenza International Music Festival, with consecutive sold out shows at The Paradise and Avalon in Boston, MA. Coming off an opening slot with Def Leppard and Journey at the Tweeter Center in Mansfield, MA, the band showcased at this yearÂ’s NEMO Music Festival. With their first CD under their belts and their second in the works, Bad Jamie can be found around the US playing clubs, stadiums, and house parties.

Lyrics

Mollie's Alright

Written By: J. Modern

Leave your girl at home
We planned on getting stoned
Kiss my mouth
turn it south
make it real nice

When she comes around
she's good to bring me down
Say my name
play my game
take it outside

I never asked her age
She acts at least 16
The girl I know
who I don't mind
and I could see her
anytime

Mollie's Alright

That girl is dangerous
She's made a fool of us
Spinning lies
Bloodshot eyes
Like a spider bite

Cocks it like a fox
Somebody call the cops
I've been shot
in the heart
caught her up the block

I've never seen her eat
She doesn't change her sheets
The girl I know
with money curves
who's hardly ever
on my nerves

Mollie's Alright

Andi's Alright
Baby's
Cindy's
Dani's
Ellie's
Frannie's
Gina's
Haley's
Itsy's
Jamie's
Lily's
The Kids are alright

Mollie's Alright

Hit & Miss

Written By: J. Modern

How do we say goodbye to each other?
How do we sacrifice for each other?
How do we stay alive for each other?
It makes me nervous
and serves a purpose
and I'd do it all again.

What makes me nervous
has served a purpose
Comes to the surface
In one out of ten.
When I see you sigh
that makes me so high
I'm that kind of guy.
Do it again.
You're putting weight on.
Early from now on.
You turned your clock on.
I'll stop believing
when I'm hardly breathing.
I think I needed, instead,
to do it again.

What's wrong or right,
you know you have to sacrifice for each other.
Oh brother,
or overdo it again.
Bottles and cans
let's make amends
we're holding hands with one another.
Oh brother,
or overdo it again

What makes me nervous
comes to the surface.
You hit & I miss
like some other men.
Sometimes you're all mine
and I'm good to get by.
I'll do it one time
and do it again.
You're always running,
not that deceiving
when I'm always leaving.
Told me a secret.
Get my heart beating.
Some kind of pain above my chest and under my chin.

What's wrong or right,
you know you have to sacrifice for each other.
Oh brother,
or overdo it again.
Bottles and cans
let's make amends
we're holding hands with one another.
Oh brother,
or overdo it

How do we say goodbye to each other?
How do we stay alive for each other?
How do we sacrifice for each other?
It makes me nervous
and serves a purpose
and I'd do it all again.
