Describing their style as "the heavy vampire sound," London's Black Time play heavy, incredibly noisy punk with shots of rockabilly and soul — Bo Diddley, Link Wray, King Tubby, and Prince are just as influential to them as Suicide, the Birthday Party, and Electric Eels. The band features guitarist/vocalist Lemmy Caution, bassist/vocalist Janie Too Bad, and drummer Mr. Stix; Caution also plays with the even rawer Subway Slims, and plays with Too Bad as the duo Sexaphone, while Mr. Stix also plays drums for Blood Safari. The trio issued its debut album, Blackout, in 2005 as a limited-edition vinyl release, which sold out quickly and was later reissued by In the Red. Black Time returned in 2006 with Midnight World, an even brasher and rawer set of songs. For 2008's Double Negative, the band embarked on its first U.S. tour.
