Bad Cop - “Control” Video (PopMatters Premiere)

[15 September 2010]

By PopMatters Staff

Nashville’s Bad Cop play a gritty, visceral brand of guitar rock, fully embracing the nervous energy of their under-21 male beings. This foursome may indeed be quite young, but they’re already made the touring rounds several times, playing with bands like Jemina Pearl and, most appropriately, the Slits. The band is a classic power trio with all the vigor that term implies and they’ve all been honing their musical since about the age of 12, while soaking up a steady listening diet of MC5 and Joy Division. ROIR released their brand new album, Harvest the Beast just yesterday into a crowded week for new records and we’ve got the premiere today of the video for “Control”.
