A Word from Spiderbait

“I can’t believe it’s 20 years since we released Black Betty and it went to number 1,” marvels Kram, Spiderbait’s drummer and vocalist. “The song has become a bit legendary for us, amassing over a hundred million streams on Spotify and 75 million views on YouTube, which is nuts!”

Janet, the band’s bassist, adds, “Nothing beats seeing live music. It feels like we’re throwing a party in the machinery shed on the farm like the old days.”

Guitarist Whitt reflects on the album’s style, “I loved touring this album 20 years ago, we went back to a raw guitar, bass, and drums approach that comes naturally to us.”
