Bad (ass) attitude
So let's get this party started
Published: October 6, 2010
When asked about his vision for the future of Bad Party, Savino channels some inner megalomaniac. "I'd like to corrupt all of the nation's youth," he says, smirking. "But it would be nice to take over the world. I'd like to have my own army." When not planning the takeover of the world, he says he and Kearns are planning a European tour and releasing of a slew of new material.
Despite his dreams, Savino is on hard times right now. In fact, he says that if he hadn't spent his life savings on his Corktown home, he'd probably be homeless right about now. Revisiting his vision of the future he says, "I'm surprised [the band] has been going on for this long." It would be nice to see a completely bonkers noise band like Bad Party ascend to the upper echelons on popular music fame, but, to be blunt, this ain't garage rock.
"I don't sound like the Kinks. And I don't have long hair. And I don't play guitar. People in Detroit don't understand how much of a joke the garage rock thing is. All these shit bands that live in, like, Birmingham. 'Where are you from?' 'Oh, I'm from Detroit.' Yeah."
