Three-track demo featuring 'Teabagged', 'Hunting Wabbits' and 'Fire In My Loins'.



Hailing from Sydney, Australia, Smotherbox is like a well loved brand of cereal: not too heavy, not too light and full of tasty fruit. You won't hear a big-arse metal riff without a playful children's melody following shortly after. Nor will you hear funk bass line without some wanky classical bit or a Beatles-esque vocal harmony. Smotherbox is also a great source of B-group vitamins and aids bowel function.

Lyrically, Smotherbox marries the ridiculous and the extreme, exploring the important questions of 21st century life:

- Would a tampon-inspired superhero be popular with children today?
- Is a craving for breast milk healthy for a grown adult?
- Should prostitutes be required to follow the same stringent O.H. & S. requirements as workers in other industries do?

Musically, Smotherbox is a mish-mash of styles including funk, ska, metal and pop.

Punters seeing Smotherbox for the first time typically go through the 'five stages': shock, curiosity, shame, submission and finally addiction.

Currently you can find Smotherbox gigging around the live circuit in Sydney, Australia, and producing a video clip the much loved 'Hunting Wabbits'.
