Song Of The Week #123 Shark Island – Bad For Each Other
Today, I decided to feature again Shark Island, one of the most talented bands that never break through mainstream, where for certain they should be, 🙁
To continue, I have no idea what went wrong in their promotion, they have everything to “conquer” the charts. Maybe because their debut album was released only 10 years after the band was formed, but I am certain that it could not prevail. Anyway, let’s concentrate on the song in itself, the most amazing part is the amazing vocal style of Richard Black (a.k.a Rick Czerny). It is incredible melodic and scratchy, what in this case, including musical background makes this song perfect.
You should know that “Bad For Each Other” was released along with their real debut album “Law Of The Order“, that was released in 1989 without not so much noise.
PS. This song was covered in 1991 by super-group named “Contraband” with Richard Black as lead vocalist.
