Bad Sports consciously channel the grimy spirit of late 1970s New York City on their upcoming third album, Bras. The Texan garage-punk trio — composed of OBN IIIs' Orville Neeley (guitar/vocals), Daniel Fried (bass/vocals), and Gregory Rutherford (drums) — count vintage CBGB regulars such as the Dictators, the Dead Boys, and Television among the inspiration behind their latest bubble-crud effort. Produced by Mark Ryan and Jeff Burke (of fellow Denton misfits the Marked Men), the 12-track LP also wallows in '50s swoon ("Free Spirit"), celebrates power-pop enthusiasm ("Terrible Place"), and surges with proto-punk grit ("Eddie Bender"). Elsewhere on the record, Bad Sports claim they "don't wanna live a life back in time," but Bras communicates the exact opposite — it's a filthy, broken-down jukebox that doubles as a time machine.
