The Good The Bad are neither just good, nor bad & they’re definitely not ugly. They’re three Danish desperados, bringing the finest New School Surf & Flamenco to the worthy masses.
In fact, their hip-shaking dirty cool has been increasing the birth-rate in Denmark by the day ever since their own explosive conception just two years ago.
That’s why in such a short time, TGTB were invited to play Roskilde Festival, German showcase festival Popkomm in Berlin and a Christmas mini-tour in London, followed by a quick jaunt to Norway.
In Summer 2009, after more atmospheric appearances at Liverpool Sound City, Hop Farm Festival and a Harley Davidson European Rally in Latvia, The Good The Bad headlined THE KILLERS aftershow party after their Royal Albert Hall gig in London.
“It is hard to ignore the fact that the band write great quality rock songs” DROWNED IN SOUND
When they’re not touring Europe, The Good The Bad can be found blowing the faces off people in their native city of Copenhagen, where they’ve impressed the more established underground scene and gained a firm fan-base:
“There is no one taking an audio pipeline as TGTB do. Their sound is simply filthy, raw, brash and charming. We are going to hear and see a lot more of these three great talents in the future.” JOKEREN, METRO NEWSPAPER, DENMARK
The Good The Bad ended 2009 with a raucous finale in London, announcing their first record deal with Stray Cat Records and a sold out EP release party at Whoreditch, Brick Lane. TGTB also celebrated their first licensing deal with fashion brand MERC, playing an exclusive in-store show at their flagship Carnaby Street store. Before returning to Denmark the band produced their first radio session at Diesel U:Music Radio in amongst some rave press reviews before bowing out with a live video session for eyeseesound.tv
“Just two guitars, some drums and a dangerous amount of pent up energy. This is a band that must be seen live. Not should. Must.” CMU DAILY
TGTB includes Adam Olsson (Baby Woodrose, The Setting Son) on lead guitar, Johan Lei Gellett (Baby Woodrose, Kira and the Kindred Spirits) on drums and Manoj Ramdas (The Raveonettes, SPEkTR) on baritone guitar.
“We don’t have a singer because we couldn’t find one that would stand behind the drummer. But we don’t need a vocalist anyway. The music speaks for itself. We use the music so we don’t have to say I Love You” says ADAM OLSSON / GUITAR
2010 has seen The Good The Bad explode in to Sweden, Berlin and London as well as BY:LARM showcase festival in Oslo in February, and SXSW in Austin, Texas where they played Strummerville showcases alongside Wayne Kramer, Billy Bragg, Chris Shiflett (Foo Fighters), beans On Toast, Smokey Angle Shades and The Supernovas.
“Those who associate Denmark with the ambient noodling of Efterklang or Our Broken Garden had better start thinking again….” CONTACTMUSIC.COM
