bad radio demos

Eddie’s first band, bad radio, was a southern california quartet whose initial focus was Red Hot Chili Peppers covers; they formed in 1986. Eddie’s last show with bad radio was in february of 1990.

These songs are notable in that they offer a glimpse into the incipient stages of Eddie Vedder’s song writing development. It was during his stint with bad radio he penned “betterman”.

goof & gremmie had their first taste of bad radio from a Pearl Jam bootleg that was purchased for an exorbitant $30 from a record store called – we kid you not – “the vinyl solution”. Classy.

On it we found thirteen tracks, including a couple entirely “new” recordings (to the PJ fanbase at least), a few familiar ones, and most substantially, far more listenable dubs of both 1989 Bad Radio demos.” [...]
