Bad Whip is the improvisational dance music duo of Alex Reid (drums) and Josiah Padmanabhan (synths) of prominent Perth outfit Grievous Bodily Calm. The partner setting allows the duo to explore pure improvisation and reactivity within a drum machine techno driven universe.

Bad Whip acts as a means to create spontaneous composition and to test the boundaries of their musical connection formed over the last five years of writing, recording and performing together. They have played at Wave Rock Weekender and RTRFM’s Radiothon as well as numerous residencies around town.
