‘The Wallbangers is a loose project devised by The Bad Seeds’ Mick Harvey where he can vent his spleen in relative obscurity. ‘Kick the Drugs’ is the band’s first EP and the title track is as much a celebration of the substances in question as it is a plea for people to desist with their abuse of them. Lyrics on other songs have been co-written with old comrades Tex Perkins & Loene Carmen and as a rhythm section Harvey has resuscitated Rocky Features (drummer on Lydia Lunch’s ‘Honeymoon in Red) and introduces Rod Bottoms on bass’.
