Totally obscure Detroit band from early eighties, a hidden treasure which savagely yelled to be dug out. 12 previously unreleased tracks of dirty rock’n’roll from the punk Mecca. A must-have for Motor City sound lovers!

Formed in 1978 by Livonia-area high school friends, towards the end of their senior year and right after graduation, BADHABIT was influenced by the likes of The New York Dolls, The Stooges, The MC5, and The Dead Boys.

As younger kids on the scene, Barr says he felt more established bands, like The Mutants and Sirius Trixion & The Motor City Bad Boys, showed them the way to do it up on the local scene.  The band dove into the scene quick, after having just a few songs under its belt, thanks to the group’s solid rehearsal schedule according to Barr.

BADHABIT recorded about nine songs in a New York studio as a demo but didn’t release any music during its time.

The band lasted on the Detroit music scene from 1978 to 1981/1982.
