Spiderbait (Australia)

We enjoyed a second close encounter with long-running and iconic alternative rock band Spiderbait.

After experiencing them in a rather intimate club atmosphere our first time – this time the venue was of a festival format as Spiderbait helped to both headline and close the show for the 2023 edition Spring Loaded event held at the fabulous Sandstone Point Hotel complex near Bribie Island Queensland.

On stage Spiderbait are a very percussion heavy and fast-paced group lead by highly energetic drummer and primary vocalist Mark “Kram” Maher. ¬†Spiderbait is rounded out by the excellence of it’s guitar duo – bass guitarist and singer Janet English and guitarist Damian Whitty. The three remain as the original members of the group which first formed back in 1991.

During their history rich career they have scored well within the Australia market including 2X top ten albums and another three albums which reached the Australian top 40.

Their studio discography includes: Shashavaglava (1993),The Unfinished Spanish Galleon of Finley Lake (1995), Ivy and the Big Apples (1996), Grand Slam (1999), The Flight of Wally Funk (2001),Tonight Alright (2004) and Spiderbait (2013).
