Bad Luck was born out of a desire to be in control whilst not wanting to be in control. Bored of the current state of music publications and working for them, two mates decided to run their own thing with a mentality of “why the fuck not?” It sparked an online place for new music, but slowly developed into what the site is today.

Beers, warm weather, cold weather, mosh pits, galleries, travelling, coffee, whiskey, love and hate collide together into some sort of psychedelic chaotic mess, it’s picked apart and cleaned up and published on this very website. Wether it’s reverb, fuzz or pure experimental, we are interested.

Frank Sinatra once said that rock and roll was “phony and false and it is sung, played and written for the most part by cretinous goons.” Well damn, call us the biggest goons, ’cause we came for the rock and roll.

Are you on our wave? If so, drop us a line. We are always looking for people with a passion to join us on this journey.
