from extremely rare 7″ singles


Artist: Badge
Release: Silver Woman / Something I’ve Lost, Single 1981
Country: UK
Market Value: $55

1. Silver Woman
2. Something I’ve Lost
Another great early metal offering, this is more on the rock side of things and even has some wah wah pedal action happening. Formed in 1980, Newcastle’s BADGE only put out this one single. The a-side “Silver Woman” is the best of the two tracks here. It start out pretty straight forward but changes thing up after a bit to a heavy/weird keyboard part, which is kind of pointless, but its one of the things that caught my ear about this one in the first place.
1.Silver Woman
2.Something I’ve Lost


Great fucking piece of vinyl here by London’s BADGER. I read about this one in the NWOBHM encyclopedia years ago. Its really a killer single and if you like this kind of shit,you need this. First track “Over the wall” is a scorcher. Straight forward NWOBHM with rougher vocals. This has more in common with WARFARE than with PRAYING MANTIS, plus a hint of early IRON MAIDEN if that means anything to you, Ha Ha. Next is “Faceless Gang” a mid pace ripper with cool lyrics and a catchy chorus. Then we come to the live track “Runaway”, yet another killer track on this awesome single and I bet these dudes had to be great live judging from this cut. Its kind of a blues rocker that actually reminds me of SPIDER or HAMMERHEAD.

Yes! This is what NWOBHM is all about, honestly. It just has that rockin, dirty, head nodding quality. Sounds exactly like you want NWOBHM to sound like, and everything is done ‘how it should be’. This one is riff driven, kinda heavy, and sorta pacey. Vocals are tough and great, and it’s thoroughly enjoyable. For style, I’d actually say it’s a little bit like Marseille at their heavier moments, a bit like Savage, and a bit like Samson or Bitches Sin. Fist might be another point of comparison, as this is pretty much the style they play. I’m not familiar with the band’s follow up demo from ’82, but I’ve owned this one for a while. If you like Savage, or if you like NWOBHM, you’ll want to pick this one up, and grab yourself a warm pint of bitter and nod your head.

Your title track is great. The riffs by Lembo and Clark are stunning, and the interplay they have is stellar. What’s cool about this song is that it’s not only ballsy, but pretty damn pacey for ’81! If you thought that track was strong however, you’re in for a treat; ‘Don’t Tell Me I’m Crazy’ is just as good, if not better. Really getting creative here – and there’s some vicious vocals and damn tough riffage. Vocalist (I’m not sure which one of the guitarists it is) lets loose a nasty scream at the start, and delivers his lines with some whimpering shrieks that really spice things up. The echoes used occasionally at the end of the “watchout!” are perfect, and the guitar lead section is fast, and brilliant. Really, really talented stuff going on here. The recording quality is actually pretty damn good too; drums are nice and thick, and the guitar are as clear as day – you can really hear the interplay between em well. Shit, I’m gonna have to insist that you NWOBHM fans get this one, if you don’t already have it. Rebellious, slicing NWOBHM with attitude, bite and great guitars, this one is a relic from a band that really is a shame that broke-up. A full length from these guys could’ve been the next ‘Wheels of Steel’ or ‘Out of Reach’. Utterly advisable NWOBHM single, gifted by a band with real talent (more than most of their contemporaries).
