Five from…Spiderbait!!

Yes, perhaps not a household name, but these guys are the masters of the two minute song. From Finlay in country  New South Wales in Australia, they are, in my opinion, one of the best high energy bands to come out of Australia in the last decade or so. The band is made of Kram, otherwise known has Mark Maher, who plays drums and does lead vocals, Janet English – bass guitarist who also sings lead vocals, and Damian Whitty on guitar. Like all three-piece bands they are all great musicians and have loads of energy. So here goes.

Black Betty – this is an awesome version of this song with a great video to go with it. You’ll end up head-banging and singing out loud, I promise. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nU1VfYYKMDk

Calypso – this is not even two minutes long, but it’s Spiderbait at their best. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CnMmRV8y0xM

Fucken Awesome – Once again Janet English on lead vocal and two minutes of high energy rock with a really out there video – love the disturbing dancing animals. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YcjOZYeehLs

Shazam – from 1999 and more of the same stuff. See these guys live and you’ll have a great time! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SZQ9Havyp-M

On My Way – after this you should be on your way to buy some Spiderbait https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s_KTSlooTWY&list=PLD88A302286997483
