When a band purposefully, spells their name wrong. It makes your brain go what? As a writer I’m watching my spell checker red line almost everything haha! Per vocalist Gus Gonzalez, “Crawling out from under forgotten rocks, Bad Desicions’ humble beginnings began in 2016 when drummer Beckett “Tommy B” Martin (drums) and Gustavo “I’ve been doin this for 30 years” le Douche (vox) met in a dark alley after a back and forth Craigslist conversation.

Neither wanted the other to know where they lived at this point. It took about 6 months to get the ball rolling but roll it did.  With the help of bassist Zeke “el churro” Olguin and Damian “American Blackout” Shoeneke, the band began scaring the crap out of bar patrons from Fort Collins to Denver regularly.

Unfortunately, dealing with both Tommy B and le Douche became too much for the aforementioned “members” (except for Jason “he makes guns” Brack–who had also scared many an IPA drinker with the boys).  After a stint with “el Turbo Jugend” Rasputin Sane (bass), the guys finally got some relief as David “__” Brack (bass) and John “I got fired from Wax Trax” Hunter (guitar) joined the band in its present incarnate.

With a foot in 80s hardcore and the other in progressive metal, Bad Desicions plays music that may sound familiar but then moves in another, less expected direction.”

That’s a pretty interesting little bio. So kids the story here is pick up an instrument when you’re young so you have a badass story to tell your interviewer! So let’s dig into their latest self titled EP and incorrectly spelled name, Bad Desicions. Personally this record was a very welcomed relief for me. I’m old school and personally tired of the emo based punk stuff. I like my punk, angry, energetic, and raw.

With tracks like “Snake”, “Goin To Jail” and my personal favorite, “She May Not Think”. Bad Desicions latest release spurs the classic punk feeling, with a tiny bit of occasional metal. They are currently working on a record! See them Saturday night at Tennyson’s Tap for CPRA’s Skate Or Die Night. Other bands on the lineup include, Admiral, Unusable Signal, and Modern Goon.
