Man Bites God will be headlining at The Spanish Club on Friday November 24th with Melbourne cult legends The Drowning Hitlers and veteran musical nerd duo The Gorskys. Man Bites God have coaxed both bands out of semi-retirement to play their first gig in over 6 years.
The Drowning Hitlers, a 10-piece fun-rock band featuring horns and backing singers, was the first band in which Mark, Chris and James played together before going on to form Man Bites God. The theatricality of their live shows and subversive tunes earnt them a cult status in Melbourne.
"The Drowning Hitlers' gigs were insane - lots of people onstage and in the audience, and lots of very stupid fun songs. We're definitely looking forward to taking the stage with the old band again", said MBG guitarist James Hazelden. "The opening act, The Gorskys is our drummer Chris' first band, so the whole gig will be like a big insanely joyous family reunion."
The Gorskys first started playing in the early 90's and originally included Fox-Fm's Jo Stanley. In 1999, they released a tongue-in-cheek track entitled "New Millennium" which foretold the end of the world on January 1, 2000. The groups' website crashed on September 12, 2001, when millions of panicked googlers visited the lyrics page for "New Millennium" which included references to "planes falling out of the sky" and "stock market crash".
Man Bites God will be presenting a cavalcade of upbeat songs from their new album, currently in production.
2006 has been a great year for Man Bites God. The independent Melbourne band were invited to support The Whitlams, and have had several tracks from their new album, The Popular Alternative, played on international pod-casts and radio. The band will also be celebrating the launch of their new music video for the song Cubby House taken from their album, The Popular Alternative. The gothic film clip features psychopathic dentists, detectives, torture and singing children.
