“One of the greatest things I’ve ever seen in all my years of watching rock music.”- Tom Scharpling, The Best Show on WFMU
“Babes is a grab-bag of this twisted swamp punk, with each speedy track being a monster of it’s own kind… this record is plastered with highlight after highlight.” -Styrofoam Drone
BABES is a punk/swamp/rock group based out of New Orleans, Louisiana. The trio–guitarist Ian Adams, drummer Sam Yoger, and synth player/vocalist Rhodes Murphy give a darker interpretation of garage and punk music, with spazzy riffs and stripped down compositions accompanied by wild guitar and gurgling synthesizer bass. The group began in 2011 and their success is a statement against the old funkadelic vanguard of the New Orleans music scene, joining others who prove there is more to “New Orleans music” than jazz standards and Meters covers. The group’s stage antics and infectious tunes have earned them wide recognition in the New Orleans area and beyond.
In a short few years, BABES has had the opportunity to play in support of Thee Oh Sees, Ty Segall, FUZZ, Japanther, NoBunny, The Magnetix, Ex-Cult, Natural Child, Catholic Spray, and the Dum Dum Girls among many other well-known national garage and punk rock acts. In 2013 BABES released their debut LP on Pizza Burglar Records and embarked on their first tour of the Midwest, playing with Quintron and Miss Pussycat, CAVE, and Buck Biloxi and the Fucks.
