Bad Bangers – Scott Mercer
Glows – Scott Mercer
Live at Sonic Masala Fest, Greenslopes Bowls Club, 17 August 2019
Previously featured on episode 266 of Live Delay, Bad Bangers is the project of Alex Campbell and Joe Hanmer. Continuing the riot grrrl/punk trajectory of her previous band GUNK, Campbell teamed up with drummer Hanmer in 2015 and began making some noise together. Their ten-track, self-titled EP was recorded in a single day and released in January 2016. This was followed in 2018 by the “Hooray For Everything” EP. Since then Campbell and Hanmer have been more involved in the somewhat gentler and folkier band Full Power Happy Hour, with Bad Bangers emerging only for occasional shows.
The set was mixed an audio production student from the Queensland University of Technology as part of his final assessment piece. We’d like to thank John Willsteed and Yanto Browning at QUT for facilitating this collaboration.
