ABOUT

Introducing BAD SALMON, a freaky fish swimming swiftly upstream against the current to spawn; whose flesh is tender and tough and teeming with vicious, delicious parasitic worms; who laughs in the face of grizzly bears and equally grizzled fly-fishers.

BAD SALMON doesn't have a genre -- doesn't understand the meaning of the term -- doesn't care if you do.

We are a band with a social justice mission and message. We are for queer liberation, eating the rich, and ending all fossil fuel extraction. It's integral to who we are as a band. If you ain't with that, don't fuck with us.

Influences

INSPIRATION. Watch these videos! If you can dig 'em, get at me, don't wait.

Her voice is definitely weird, but her lyrics are on-point and the band is tight as fuck. Viva DeConcini and the New York Heiroglyphics (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0tMw5sEpKOo)

NYC Yiddish Klezmer-rock outfit GOLEM plays "Ushti Baba" (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j_s8F6WColc&list=PLEjB5r098TUSnAVmFonk1L6J4PgkSMG8f&index=34)

Local MCs Hardwork Movement are a constant inspiration, but they need a little competition (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mZKnzG2QcB0)
