Album Review
Your Imaginary Friend
Reviewed 2018-03-01 
Rip roaring surf infused garage psych (or is it the other around?). Their bandcamp sums it up quite well: ” The Bad Larrys are a five piece proto-punk & psych-surf band based in Philadelphia PA. The quintet’s sound combines a love of classic surf rock and storytelling with the raw power of pre-punk rock and roll.” I’ll say, bad assed stuff, pretty in all the right places, ugly in all the wrong.

1) (3:38) swingy mid pych garage with farfisa, strummy chords 2) (2:31) Surfs Up!! Killer psyche surf, play on continuous because the last chord is chopped off due to lousy track writing 3)* (5:44) comes out of last chord of previous, slow bluesy, smacks of late 60’s London blues bands, guitar reminds me of something I cant place, like a david Gilmour solo, but then midway it goes 50’s surf sock hop romantic, then back, epic killer 4) (2:49) FCC (shit) upbeat bouncy 60’s Clash’esque with ska back beat 5) (2:47) FCCs (at 0:42 left a chorus sings “we don’t do it for the shitty money”, too bad) rockin, cool song about getting fired for being hungover 6) FCCs fbombs galore in the brief intro, if you skip the intro then... (4:04) a cool smarmy slow twangy piece 7) (3:23) sweet feel, upbeat poppy smiling tone 8)* (4:50) huge tremolo dripping reverb full on Fender sweet sock hop slow dance love song, yowza 9) (3:48) mean feel, slow minor riff involves hard drinking and ghosts, cool weird out-tro
