When Steve the singer out of the hardcore punk band Gout/Lager Louts became ill with throat problems he had to stop singing live. During that time Steve started making his own music from sounds he liked; tractors, angle grinders, drills and anything you can hit like barrels, buckets, scaffold tubes and diesel tanks. Once Steve’s voice improved he set about starting up a live band and was joined by guitarist Jason Sanders, and didgeridoo player Dave Croughan. The end result is a mix of hoe down punk crossed with industrial folk blues that shouldn’t work but somehow does.
Since then Jesus Hooligan have added more and more people to the band, including four extra Burrell Bashers (Adam Smith, Carol Walker, Lester Rouge and Paul Geddes), a drummer (Arup) and Rick Pistol on Darbuka. As a result of this, and their fun, energetic live performances, Jesus Hooligan continue to go from strength to strength.
