“BADONES play OMFEST! ROCKhampton’s Ramones’ tragics the Badones are set to play this coming weekend’s Original Music Festival, or OMFest, for the very first time and guitarist/vocalist Jim Douglas (aka Jay Dee) is excited at the prospect for a few reasons...With OMFest meant to feature ‘original’ music, how does this sit with a band known mainly for performing sets of Ramones songs or 70’s punk rock covers? Jay Dee: “Well, that’s the main reason we’re excited about this show. While we’ve played OMFest before as our alter egos Therapeutic Paradox, this will be the first time we’ve played a full, originals Badones’ set; we’ve got quite a few new songs and we’re stoked to be able to have a chance to try them out on an audience. We’re really looking forward to it!””
