Badmouth is not a new band, actually they have been around since 2007 when Chris LeMon (Bass) and Mike Hill (Rhythm Guitar) had the marvelous idea to take things in a more serious direction. After some line up changes, a self titled debut back in 2008 and numerous gigs with acts like Kingdom Come, LA Guns, Pretty Boy Floyd, Sator and Zodiac Mindwarp they are releasing their second “Heavy Metal Parking Lot” album, in 2011, with producer Chips Kiesbye (Hellacopters, Sahara Hotnights).

They never were among my favorite acts, although I have to admit that they were far from an average band.

Italy is best known for pasta and pizza (and ancient Roman civilization, culture, architecture and bla bla) but for sure isn’t best known for sleazy, hard rock bands.
