Recorded back in the summer of 2009, My Name and The War were two of the first songs ever written and recorded by The Babies. With the 7 inch single due to be released on Record Store Day (April 21st), and digital single to follow on Monday 23rd April, this will be the first official release of these two songs.
Capturing the band’s raw energy and honest, direct sound, the single also marks the first 7 inch release for fledging UK label, Bad Paintings.
My Name is a paean to youth and growing up, and The War, a song about confusion and helplessness. It’s probably going to be a must-have for fans of The Babies, as well as related bands Woods and Vivian Girls.
