Pop open the garage and check out Bad Vibrations, the new 7” from Philadelphia’s The Improbables; 2 ½ minutes of garage-punk vocals, ringing guitar, and oooooh-oooooh backing vocals driven by a seriously tight rhythm section. And forget cowbell; I need, we all need, more tamborine and Bad Vibrations delivers the goods. I don’t think I’d be going out on a limb if I assumed The Improbables have a few Jam and Monkees (think Pleasant Valley Sunday) records in their collections. A great mix of influences but definitely the real deal. Worth adding to your own personal stack of 7”.

Also, if your carefully barbered ‘do is looking a little sloppy after a night of rock n roll debauchery, order one of the first 100 copies and get a bonus Improbables comb!

The Details

The Improbables "Bad Vibrations" b/w "Giving You a Key" 45RPM Single / Blue Vinyl

Philadelphia's favorite sons make their HiVo debut with this killer garage-pop two sider. The Improbables (or Imps as they are sometimes called) bring us the antidote to the scourge of Mike Love with "Bad Vibrations" – a tune that owes more to Neil Diamond and Gerry Goffin than the bros Wilson. The B-Side "Giving You a Key" is blues-fueled garage stomp that straddles the electro-static line between Memphis and London.

This single comes in BLUE vinyl, a deluxe X10 sleeve, digital download card and the FIRST 100 ship with an unbreakable Improbables comb and boss Imps button. Limited Edition of 300 copies.

Includes unlimited streaming of Bad Vibrations via the free Bandcamp app, plus high-quality download in MP3, FLAC and more.
