Lovers of great Australian rock n roll, listen up! Hot on the heels of a cracking run of shows in vineyards across the country, Spiderbait are preparing to hit the road again in March & April 2017. And it’s not your usual date with the ‘Bait!
This time around, Kram, Whitt and Janet will be throwing it back to 1996, playing their third and most celebrated album, the seminal ‘Ivy and the Big Apples’, in its entirety. Fans can expect all 16 tracks from start to finish including some songs that have never been played live before.
The album became home to the chart-topping track ‘Buy Me A Pony’, which rocketed to the coveted #1 spot in the 1996 triple j Hottest 100, a feat that had NEVER before been achieved by an Australian band. Then came ‘Calypso’, which featured in the nation-wide Top Ten and on the soundtrack of the cult classic film ‘10 Things I Hate About You’.
“When Buy Me A Pony won the triple J Hottest 100 on Australia Day 1997, making us the first Australian band to do so, I remember feeling not only happy for the band, but happy for us Australian music lovers who now regarded their own just as highly as they rated anything from overseas.” said Whitt.
It was a landmark moment in Australian music history, and throughout the 20 years since, Spiderbait have torn through the gamut of Australia's biggest and most iconic festivals including Splendour in the Grass, Falls Festival, A Day on the Green, Party in the Paddock, Big Day Out, Homebake, Meredith and Livid (to name a few).Their last two headline tours have completely sold out and this time they are packin’ their most requested tracks!
