Still working on that hot first release.



The Bad New Ones are a Brooklyn-based band that plays ramshackle rock and roll in the drunken tradition of The Faces, The New York Dolls, The Mekons, The Replacements, Guided by Voices, and Spider Bags. With a sound that incorporates both the jagged modernism of post-punk and the heartsick twang of hard country, The Bad New Ones make a disorderly noise that is hopelessly unfashionable yet inexplicably relevant.

Drummer Alex Tretiak, of Glen Rock, New Jersey, was formerly a touring member of Titus Andronicus. He currently moonlights as an accompanist to fellow Titus alum Andrew Cedermark, appearing on his new record, Home Life, on Underwater Peoples. Keyboardist and vocalist Bobby Miller, of Miami, is a classically trained pianist who is nonetheless not afraid to make a mess. Bassist Jack Kredell hails from the mean streets of Los Angeles and bores the rest of the band with his complaints about the inferiority of New York tacos.

Guitarist and vocalist Shuja Haider was born in a small college town in Pennsylvania where he learned the only three chords he knows how to play. As the primary composer of the bands songbook, he accepts most of the blame for the terrible messages their music sends to impressionable children. He draws influence from songwriters like Elvis Costello, Gram Parsons, Alex Chilton, Nick Lowe, Jarvis Cocker, Ray Davies, Merle Haggard, and Prince.

The Bad New Ones have played at venues including Shea Stadium BK, Legion, Brooklyn Fireproof, XPO 929, and Lawtonstock, sharing the stage with bands like Liquor Store, Eula, Dead Sexy Sheila, Sunset Guns, Vulture Shit, Casual Fridays, Retail, Bodega Bay, 1-800-BAND, and Ravenous.
