With twangy guitar licks, distorted slinky bass lines, bombardments of call and answer vocals, and intense drum rhythms from speedy to beat-y, The BCASA are providing one of the more interesting sounds in the Canadian music scene. Though they have survived in the punk circuit for years, their approach and energy leave you with a very counter-punk feeling. They demonstrate a catalogue of songs with lyrics and titles so ridiculous that you can’t ignore them. From “Double Hitler Violation”, a hockey anthem, to “Q Dog King Cheese Parkin’ Bitches at Your Mom’s Place”, a song no one is really too sure about, to songs simply about eating food and killing robots. It is clear that this band has no interest in your interests.
B.C.A.S.A. is an acronym for ‘Bill Cosby Anarchist Society of America’ which had to be changed due to threat of legal action from Mr. Cosby’s team of flesh-hungry badgers. They have been referred to as The Cosby’s, The Bill Cosby’s, Bee-cassa, and "the band with bad haircuts". They’ve played in the grimiest of venues and also have some reputable events under their belt such as Fear & Loathing in Montreal alongside The Sainte Catherines, Trigger Effect and Barn Burner as well as My Dog Popper’s latest reunion show.
This trio carries itself with a strong “D.I.Y. or Don’t I.Y.” manner. Everything from album covers to the music itself is very home grown. To some they may come across as a niche or novelty group but it’s surprisingly easy to get comfortable with the oddball nature of this band. Those who have seen live performances recognize the horrifying reality of their original presence. There is no anti-venom for The BCASA; they will fuck you up hard.
