Scene News: Bigger Than Jesus To Play Landmark Melbourne Show on November 29!

Melbourne hard rock icons, Bigger Than Jesus will be playing a special show at
Chasers in Melbourne on November 29!

Back in the 90s, Bigger Than Jesus’ gigs were a sight to behold. Fronted by Steve Lucas, (frontman of Aussie legendary punks, X), the band knew how to do rock hard put on a show that was totally in your face. Wooden crosses were burned on stage making a mockery of the KKK while ceilings, gear and other loose objects were sometimes destroyed. Their reputation as one of the most exciting and entertaining Australian bands was second to none. 

While that’s less likely to happen in this day and age, the counter-culture attitude behind Bigger Than Jesus remains strong. The band came roaring back in October 2018 with their first official audio release in over 2 decades. The unstoppable, adrenaline rushing, masterpiece entitled ‘One For The Road’, a 6 track offering featuring lost tracks from the critically acclaimed 1993 Killervision sessions including ‘One for the Road’, ‘Laughing’, ‘Just My Life’ and ‘Wicked Love’ plus new material.

Two new music videos for BTJ songs will be screened at the Chasers show!

An incredibly tight live band, Bigger Than Jesus command your attention with their explosive, atmospheric and energetic performances and they still know how to do it big!

This special show marks the 31st birthday of Outlaw Hard’n’Fast at Chasers and will also be a fond farewell for guitarist Brett Kingman as he plays his last gig with his bandmates.

Bigger Than Jesus are authentically Australian – both sonically and in their approach to recording & performing. Steve Lucas’ vocals (founding member of infamous Aussie punk band X) are delivered with a refreshing Aussie tone. Combined with the twin guitar attack from Hank Oudendyk and Brett Kingman (hired gun for numerous Australian touring acts) and the backbone provided by Kevin McMahon (No) and Paul Foenander.

‘One for the road’, ‘Laughing, ‘Just My Life’ & ‘One Of Us’ were first recorded at Gotham with Tony Cohen in 1994 before being re-recorded at Sing Sing and finished by Scott Kingman (Horsehead, The Screaming Jets) in 1996. ‘Wicked Love’ was first recorded at Gotham around the same time; 1994, and finished by Scott Kingman in 1996. ‘Night Call’ was recorded and produced by Bigger Than Jesus & Mark Forrester at Platinum Studios from  December 1992 to January 1993.

‘One For The Road’ was skillfully remastered by Gil Mathews at Aztec Studios in 2018 and is now poised and waiting to knock your head off.
