SHADY NASTY - Bad Posture 12"
Inspired by the likes of Show Me The Body, King Krule, Iceage, Low Life and Mount Kimbie, Shady Nasty play an energetic and weirdo breed of post-punk that skirts the boundaries of the genre. With backgrounds in jazz and classical music, they subvert expectations. As Watson explains, "We have all had musical training. Haydn [Green, bass], Kev and I have been playing our instruments for a long time and played in jazz bands and shit like that. The problem with all of that music for me, though, is that it has no cultural resonance. As much as I like jazz, it doesn't describe my life." What, then, might describe Shady Nasty's lives? Modding cars. Chinese heritage. Making ends meet.
