"North Jersey Notes"

THE BAD SCENE-Cliffside Park, NJ

I was recently turned on to a very cool band out of Cliffside Park, NJ. When I mean cool, I mean <i>very</i> cool! The name of the band is The Bad Scene and they're the type of band where you can sit back and chill while you hear songs like "Indigo" or "Corrections" playing in the backround. If you miss hearing reggae rock bands like The Police or Sublime, then you'll love these guys! For me, Adrian the bass players's basslines really stood out. I have to say that my favorite song from The Bad Scene is a song called "Pills." I can't seem to get it out of my head. <br>
Anyway, The Bad Scene have been together since 2005 and they've come a long way since then, rocking places like Maxwell's in Hoboken, NJ to the Starland Ballroom in Sayreville, NJ, with stops in NYC. They're a three-piece band consisting of Mario on guitars and lead vocals, Adrian on Bass, and Fabio on drums and backing vocals. Together, their influences bring about a playing style that mixes rock, ska, and punk. Mario's vocal hooks on songs like "Prodigal Son" will leave you singing the catchy song in your head all day. Isn't that the idea of a hook anyway? <br>
Back in late July early August (2007) The Bad Scene released their debut full-length CD "A Classy mess" via Romulus Records. If you want to hear what they're all about, or you already know about them but what to find out where they're playing nex, then log on to - The Acquarian


"A Classy Mess" (2007) Full Length available online at Itune,,,, and Romulus X website.



The Bad Scene plays catchy reggae rock drawing from influences like The Police, Sublime, Green Day, Les Claypool, and many other artists. We produce a very big sound live and are constantly writing new music. We have enough songs for our second full length album now, but will be writing and playing new ones until our tentative recoding date in 2008.
