Biography

THE BIBLE BASHERS have been peddling their filthy brand of blues-infested rock'n'roll since 2008. Their music is a deadly dose of Australian swamp rock, influenced by such iconic acts as Beasts of Bourbon, The Stooges and AC/DC. Famous for their audacious, no-prisoners live performances, they've been a persistent thorn in the side of the local music scene.

June 2010 saw the release of their eponymous EP, recorded by The Reverend Max Ducker of Cellar Sessions Studios. Featuring 7 sordid tales of downright depravity, Many of which finding their way on to local compilations. Self-funded, released & distributed, THE BIBLE BASHERS EP has been circulating your town like a bad batch of acid.
Since the release of their EP, these drunken gods of mischief have racked up a long list of noteworthy achievements and dubious honours. They released the notorious “Wine Haemorrhage” music video, hijacked Mongrel Country’s tour of Melbourne, printed two of their very own ‘zines full of their low brow lyrics n deviant art and shared the stage with Kim Salmon(Scientists), Six Ft Hick (QLD), The Stabs (VIC), The Dead South (VIC) and Buzz Deluxe (Canada). Not to mention a seemingly never ending schedule of shows over the years and a 2010 WAMI nomination for Best Punk Act.

Never ones to fall back on tired formula, they've spiced up their gigs with all manner of low down, low brow antics including; recruiting impromptu choirs (The Bashettes & The Bastard Choir) to join them on stage, handing out their own currency (Bash Cash) and even going so far as to fake their own break up (The Last Temptation of the Bible Bashers), an ingenious publicity stunt which is had fans and media alike completely fooled.

Ain’t no doubt, these holy rollers are here to kick-start a glorious new age of decadence n’ depravity...Hallelujah to that.
