What was Bad Company's best tune?

Post by pete_bubonic » Thu Oct 04, 2012 3:42 pm

Been listening to a lot of older D&B recently, I think the genre kinda peaked around 99/00 and just started treading old ground or going overly Bro after that (controversial, it is nice to hear D-Bridge and others bringing a good vibe to D&B again). Bad Company just stand out again and again, they seemed to run with what Nico, Ed Rush, Optical, Dom and Roland had laid down and turned it into something a bit more refined and really interesting (don't get it twisted, D&R is one of my top 3 producers of all time). Admittedly, Shot Down on Safari came out and I lost interest, I think you could hear a lot of what Fresh has become now, just starting to peak it's head through on that album. But Inside the Machine and Digital nation were fucking brilliant. So here's a few to get us going in this massive reminisce:

Best or favourite?

I've always had a softspot for Coma / Spraycan TBH. Coma is proper heads down squelch, and Spraycan was just fierce.

Both!




i've got this on vinyl and I'm SURE it's not billed as Bad Company, either way, it's a massive tune.

You know, a bit later on (nearing the end) but I loved Rush hour as well, remembering hearing it for the first time at The End at Renegade Hardware, jesus.

4 Days, I dunno how I could forget that is such a banger.

Pulse I like dat the time, but fell out of love with it. Probably from doing the beat juggling routine on the synth for house at an end :D

the nine, obviously!

Shot Down on Safari was one of the biggest albums for me ever in terms of my musical development - It was around the time we started going out raving. I know for a lot of older heads that was when things started to fall off for them, but the rinse out was perfect for us bushy tailed teengagers...... Hornet, Snowcat etc etc lot of fond memories of those ones.

Remember Planet Dust was track 1 on that "Jungle Massive" cd mixed by hype ages ago too, love that track also

Fresh is a fucking badman, always will be in my book.

Just like with dr.dre I hate the way people cast em off just cos they want to make some dollar/ fall off, disregarding their history of quality.

Even later stuff like this was sick

I was able to ignore all his jump up stuff for years. I bought escape from planet monday and only listened to it once but i still forgave him.




But then i heard louder....

Brain Scan is a nutty tune.

Planet Dust is the one though, that intro is second to none.

I always loved sentient for being uncompromising, unsubtle, just straight-to-the-point hard


and forgotten for being practically the opposite:


add infinity


seizure


and brain-scan somewhat higher in the list


and I guess that would be to me my top 5 Bad Company tracks.

although solo tracks or member-related formations would make the topic a lot more interesting, you could go back as far as this:

I got Digital Nation, and Inside The Machine, but my strongest memory is when I got Book Of The Bad cd, and would seriously brock out to Miami Flashback in the car on the way to work. Wonder I never got stopped, just found it on PooTube...skip to the drop, and turn up
