Listen to what others are saying about BADGERTRAP :
“Brilliantly unhinged music: idiosyncratic, shambolic, fabulously raw and direct, like Jeff Mangum sparring with Mark E. Smith. Hal Camplin’s extraordinary ear for language is nailed together with some killer chords to spine-tingling effect.” (Venue Mag)
“Wired charisma, black humour and killer tunes in equal measure with echos of Neutral Milk Hotel …” (BBC) “Come for the view, stay for the tunes.” (Drowned In Sound mag)
BADGERTRAP’s core is made up of front-man Hal Camplin(vocals/guitar), Andrew Brown (percussion) and Steve Dunk(brass). In addition audiences are psyched up by a giant badger called Barry with his shambolic live stunts. The sound marries a dynamic beat and strutting melodies with raw, emotive vocals. Described mainly by fans as being light and funny and then suddenly challenging.
BADGERTRAP hail from Bristol UK, a city that has always attracted mavericks, revolutionaries, troublemakers and radicals.
On recent South coast tour Lynn Hasti Portsmouth RMA said:
They were guitar and drums with a definite punky twang, reminding me of The Pixies, Talking Heads and Mountain Goats at their abstract best. Just as I contemplated how odd it was watching a man in a badger suit, on a stage, rapping, the badger head went and instead I was watching a man sized badger doing the same. Quite, quite unique. You’ll be glad you’ve found them – sup on another beer or whatever gets you high and join BADGERTRAP’s surreal feel.
