Infectious melodic rock and sharp satirical lyrics make Man Bites God well worth inviting into your eardrums. Combining their frenetic live shows with lush studio recordings, Man Bites God are a poppy bass/guitar/drums kind of thing using harmonies and dark humour to have you dancing, laughing, stopping to buy a beer and have a bit of a sit down, then dancing and laughing again.
The lads were discovered playing in a tiny Melbourne Bar in 2000 and have since played sold-out shows across Australia, released a full-length album and three EPs, appeared regularly on radio and television and were once mistaken for Aerosmith by a really drunk guy.
Here are nice things others have said or written:
"Their music is a smorgasbord of styles and has lyrics that lurk in dark, satirical places... intellectually crafted songs... Man Bites God packs an irreverent punch" - The Melbourne Age
"Pub rock, bubblegum pop and sleazy pornstar funk" - InPress (Aus)
"most excellent... music and mirth" - Dr Demento (US)
"A delightful mix of hopping tunes and comedic genius" - PBS FM
"Rock with bite." - InPress (Aus)
"infectious melodies and a 60's boy-band bent..." The Adelaide Advertiser
"Man Bites God are the pinnacle of a twisted sense of humour... funny as hell" - Undercover Media
In 2004 Man Bites God toured the UK including a 23 very successful Edinburgh Fringe shows. They played sellout shows and received invitations to tour London, the UK and the US. They sold-out the entire first run of their debut CD, received great reviews and were invited to sing Down Under with Colin Hay (Men At Work) in front of a huge crowd at Late and Live. It couldn't have gone better.
Here's what the international press had to say:
"endearing and harmonious... lunatic lyrics and melodic absurdity works well and will undoubtedly give rise to other acts singing from the same hymn sheet... covering a range of styles from barbershop through rock, folk and funk, the songs would have Spinal Tap in a spin... these Melbourne lads can play with more talent than many chart toppers" - The Scotsman (UK)
"sensational... brilliant, funny songs" - FringeReport.com (UK)
"gorgeous harmonisation... boyish charm... they've got
the right mix" - 3 Weeks (UK)
Man Bites God continue to write, record, tour, eat and breathe. They are currently about to release their second studio album, and will soon be embarking on another international tour. For more info, free songs and fun go to their award winning website www.manbitesgod.com
