Bad Boy Chiller Crew previewed ‘Disrespectful’ (out January 21) last week with a new song called ‘Messages’. The 16-track collection also includes previous singles ‘Bikes N Scoobys’, ‘Don’t You Worry About Me’ and ‘Footsteps To My Shoes’.
Speaking to NME recently about their live shows, BBCC explained: “When we’re on stage, that’s when we have the best laughs. Performing live doesn’t feel like work.”
As for their ambitions for the future, the band’s Gareth Kelly said: “As long as Adele or Ed Sheeran aren’t playing about, I reckon we could get a Number One album. I’m sure of it – we all are.”
In a four-star review of BBCC’s set at Reading Festival, NME wrote: “One thing’s for sure, the lads from Bradford are ready to get down and dirty, bringing their very Yorkshire brand of bassline – booming, Tesco basics dance music and cheeky, rapid-fire rhymes – to these southern mash-heads.”
