SPIDERBAIT:

The narrative of the Spiderbait story is so fantastical it could only be based in truth: three friends from a small country Australian town taking on the Australian music scene on their own terms and emerging triumphant 25 years later, the friendships unscathed but their band one of the biggest and best on the national scene.

As brash and confident as they are strange and uncompromising, the three founding members of Spiderbait Janet, Whitt and Kram – started humbly in the rural NSW township of Finley, the fervent music lovers taking inspiration from everything from Slayer to The Bangles and meshing into one intoxicating and unique brew.

Having learned their trade bashing out their idiosyncratic thrash-pop tunes in the shed on Janet’s family’s farm, they soon relocated down to Melbourne and immersed themselves in that rich and fertile scene, quickly becoming important cogs of that important musical machine.

From there they quickly consolidated their status as national treasures, their popularity spanning three decades and showing no signs of abating. They’ve released seven acclaimed albums, which have all racked up gold, platinum or double platinum status and have combined Australian sales of over one million units.

Spiderbait have also racked up pretty much every accolade there is to achieve on the Australian scene, having taken home numerous ARIA Awards, chalked up a number one single (their 2004 cover of Leadbelly’s Black Betty) and even topped the prestigious triple j Hottest 100 (for Buy Me A Pony , 1996).

They’ve also become one of the most reliable propositions and biggest drawcards in the live realms, having criss-crossed the country immeasurable times on headlining tours as well as playing show-stopping sets at every festival from Splendour In The Grass and Big Day Out to Meredith, Falls Festival and A Day On The Green (as well as countless others).

And their distinctive music and cheeky arrangements make Spiderbait difficult to pigeonhole, the rock’n’roll royals’ unique stylings allowing them to share stadiums with both Guns N’ Roses and Pink and totally dominate, as well as playing alongside everyone from Beastie Boys to Rollins Band and Midnight Oil to Cold Chisel.

The outpouring of love and affection for Spiderbait on their Ivy & The Big Apples Tour in 2017 – incredibly the biggest-selling Spiderbait tour ever! – was astounding in both volume and intensity, the band’s blatant camaraderie and lack of rock star pretence having endeared them to their hordes of fans for life.The ‘Bait headlined the inaugural Spring Loaded Festival at Sandstone Point, mid 2018 to more than 7,000 devoted QLD fans.The first show post lockdown was a joyous sold out Covid-safe Summer Sounds Festival in Adelaide Jan 2021.

But there’s no resting on their laurels for the hard-working three-piece, and there’s plenty more chapters to write in the Spiderbait story – it’s impossible to know what exactly will happen next, but you know it will be achieved by three great mates and soundtracked by music that’s catchy and uncompromising. Stay tuned!
