About Bad Habits

A dark gothic country tapestry of visual fantasy storytelling colliding with the melancholy sadness of real life imperfections. "Music saved my life but it was also my cover and nearly took it." - Bad Habits' Martin @Red Butane. He writes dreamlike songs often with a nightmare reference. Creating landscapes and images with his lazy vocals and guitars. You are drawn into his stories and you really feel you are in the plot of the characters, you can touch danger but escape. Accompanied by his family on occasion (3 piece/duo/solo) his wife @Glo Butane produces, engineers and plays bass/guitar/keyboards and their son Dakota Red is on cajon/drums. A family of music under his owned trademarked brand Bad Habits (since first used in the 70s). Martin Red was medically retired from his undercover job with PTSD, now with health conditions and injuries from his past life; So he has to sit/use support to perform. However it was not always like this, " Back in '78 I was going to give it up while playing a blues jam at the Onslow pub, Southampton when a grubby man came up and asked to jam." he continues, "he asked if we knew Black Magic Woman? We started to play and it was @Peter Green. After I asked him where he lived he said Salisbury. I asked him how he got here? He said he walked so I took him home to his sister's house; Pete told me, "Play music for yourself and if other people like it its a bonus." since 12 yo music was always my centre but life took me to a very different world where I could not be in the limelight. Finally I am free and making music to help my mental health and hopefully other's as well"

This is a very organic process. I play live and drive my wife the producer/engineer up the wall as I see every song as a story that I have to emote immediately. We don't overdub except on the electric guitar parts. I play and sing completely live. My wife uses 3 microphones on me because I can't double myself every take is different as every gig I play will also be; first one 20 July at Bush Hall, London W12 more international dates to follow in support of Mens Health Charities as I'm a disabled musician.
