In the beginning...
Mike’s band Inter Society Corruption starts off breaking shit and tearing up basements with Bob Huber, Tom Thomas and Tad Kubler.
After many configurations there is the Doublespeak era underage drinking and hard drug use make for creative writing some of the best years of our lives until Tad and Bill moved to Minneapolis, MN... KT88 was born and led Kub into the arms of Craig Finn of Lifter Puller and eventually The Hold Steady.

Mike decided that anguish and masturbation was getting old and called up the old Cuz Joey to start jamming (2001).... They jammed they saw they kicked some drunk bitches to the curb and alas... we have The Bitter Half.

So many years and Jager Bombs later we are still doing Doublespeak covers... There’s a lot more but you’ll just have to come get messed up with us and ask....

In 2006 bassist Jason Petitt joined the craziness to round out the low end. Jason is linked to the other bands like The Pipe Circus, & Middleworld. Jason and Chad have a tight ass groove to help balance the bitchin’ rock guitars.

The Bitter Half’s sound is influence by booze and all kinds of musicial styles from AC/DC and Helmet to Marvin Gaye. TBH has played many of shows in the southern Wisconsin area, and one in upper Michigan. This band is looking expand it’s playing area as well as rip the faces off the boring rock scene of today.

You better bring an ample thirst for alcohol and a change of clothes....
You may end up Face Down with a head full of mind altering substances.....
