An unassuming college in Norfolk was where it began for rock five-piece Bad Touch. When they started out in 2010, they were performing covers in local pubs but it wasn’t long before they started to compose and play original material.


Following in the footsteps of The Darkness, KT Tunstall and Arctic Monkeys, Bad Touch recorded their first EP at Leeders Farm Studio in 2012. This sparked a wave of new opportunities for the band, including the chance to perform in venues across the UK. Building a reputation as an outstanding live band, they soon earned themselves an Exposure Music Award, and received an invitation to play Hard Rock Hell.


The next two years saw Bad Touch reach new heights. Not only did they win the prestigious Marshall Ultimate Band Contest, but they also toured with a variety of hard rock artists including Bonafide, The Quireboys and Tyketto. They rocked the UK festival circuit with appearances at Download, Hard Rock Hell and Steelhouse.


Bad Touch’s eagerly awaited debut album came in April 2015. ‘Half Way Home’, which was recorded at Foel Studios, received rave reviews from the critics, including Classic Rock Magazine who said: “Straight-to-the-point classic hard

rock – what’s not to like?” Capitalising on the success of their debut release, the band embarked on a full UK tour with Northern Irish rock band, The Answer.


Touring continued in 2016, with supports slots for Jared James Nichols, Kentucky Headhunters and Massive. The band rounded off their year on the road with the release of their second album ‘Truth Be Told’. The lead single, ‘99%’, was remixed for radio by legendary Rolling Stones producer, Chris Kimsey. Their critically acclaimed sound secured them a slot on the Planet Rock Roadstars tour as well as performances at Ramblin’ Man, Wildfire and Amplified. After a hectic festival season, Bad Touch headlined their first tour for ‘Planet Rock Presents’.


2018 is shaping up to be another defining year for Bad Touch, following their support tour with Skid Row in March and their recent worldwide album deal with Marshall Records.


In October 2018, the band released their third studio album “Shake A Leg” and embarked on a nationwide UK tour in October and November with special guests Aaron Buchanan & The Cult Classics and Daxx & Roxanne. They released the single “Lift Your Head Up” which was playlisted on various rock radio stations including Planet Rock.

All Aboard The Skylark review by HAWKY

The brand new album from HAWKWIND

Well it’s that time of year again a new Hawkwind album I was a bit apprehensive despite being a fan for over 35 years.

The last album was a definite Marmite one and I don’t like Marmite ha…

But anyway on to the new album all aboard the skylark if you’re like me, when I heard the title I was instantly reminded of one of my favourite authors E E Doc Smith so was very interested to see what the band produced this time in what is their 50th year have played it a few times so far whereas last three don’t get any table time these days mainly due to poor production this definitely will i have planted the flag on this I like it.

It’s half-and-half vocal instrumental wise it starts off with Flesh Fondue, a Re working of star cannibal, that will sound great live should they play it and I won’t really add more spoilers and leave to each listener to form their own opinion but tracks 3 4 6 8 and the finisher are on heavy rotation I will say whilst it could never get close to my 3 top eras far too tall a task but it’s the Dave Brock way to try something different it’s a welcome addition to my collection….. Onward
