Hailing from Sydney are Little Bastard, a mighty 7 piece punk-string band incorporating guitars, bass, fiddle, banjo, harmonica, mandolin, beats, a load of voices and memorable tunes that’ll suck you into their good time, old time jangle.
After spending two years cutting their teeth on the live circuit, Little Bastard have hit the studio to lay down their debut album, refining it into something unlike anything else in the Australian musical landscape.
Raucous. Energetic. Uninhibited.
The songs traverse a fair bit of territory both sonically and thematically, switching from nostalgic medium-paced anthems to deep, slow-burning ballads and back to the “party punk” aesthetic that the band’s live shows are known for.
The Little Bastard attitude was forged on the road, as they quickly became a must-see live band, clocking up thousands of kilometres in the van, touring with The Snowdroppers, Sticky Fingers and Wagons, as well as playing Falls Festival, Peats Ridge, Cherry Rock, Bigsound, Boogie and the Ballarat Beer festival.
Ultimately this is acoustic anchored punk rock, but even in the more delicate moments of the record Little Bastard will make sure your heart’s still pumpin’ and your head’s still noddin’.
High For you
