Live offering from the Beasts of Bourbon, Low Life.
Recorded Live at The Tote and mixed at Atlantis Studios in
Beasts of Bourbon reunite for two
In 1983, The Beasts of Bourbon’s drunk-swamp-rock was formed as a side project
in Sydney, but they grew to become a supergroup influencing and inspiring a new
dangerous form of rock n roll within Australia and garnering praise and respect
world wide for their infamous live performance; when they took to the stage, you
knew you would get a great show, but what form this took or what direction the
evening would go, you never knew.
This quintessential Australian pub rock band fuelled by alcoholic ambiance
comprising of Tex Perkins, Spencer P Jones, Tony Pola, Charlie Own and welcoming
back, the fully recovered Brian Hooper have
reformed for two very special reunion shows, before heading to Spain for the
Azkenza Rock Concert, where they will share the stage with Deep Purple,
Queens Of The Stone Age, Bad Religion, Wilco, Monster Magnet, Television and
The reunions shows will be held in Sydney on Friday 12th August at The
Gaelic Club and Melbourne on Saturday 13th August at The Hi-Fi Bar &
Ballroom. Special guests on both nights will be Brisbane’s 6 ft Hick
and Melbourne’s Bird Blobs
A new recording will soon be available in the form of a live album and has been
described as the Beasts at their finest and angriest yet. “Low Life” was
recorded at Melbourne’s infamous Tote Hotel in late 2003 and is set to be
released August 1, through Spooky Records.
listening to the assaulting and careening midtempo sludge-twang of Australia's
Beasts of Bourbon on this furnace blast of a live album, you'll have no trouble
believing that lead throat Tex Perkins wasn't faking the rather inelegant
bathroom-floor sprawl on the album cover. Suffice to say that these masters of
sonic grit leave no ear hole unscathed on these dozen killer tracks of anarchic
party music--the finest in unclean rock and as authentic as this stuff gets.
on-again off-again saga of the Beasts of Bourbon continues with this
whisky-soaked live effort. Tex, Spencer and Charlie lurch from sweaty blues to
gritty funk and all the way back again. Fittingly the set features the infamous
Rolling Stones rarity C---sucker Blues and AC/DC's Ride On.
Captures the band in fine form, assaulting a pub audience.
