„See I was born too late and I’ll never be like you. “
What was right for SAINT VITUS in 1986 can’t be wrong for BUG in 2012:
Beyond momentary trends and scenes – a step ahead or three steps behind?
Musical therapy for burnout patients?
The perfect band for the very last night?
Hymns of affluent neglect?
Soundtrack for notorious losers and nerds?
Longterm Non Progressor?
Founded in 1997 BUG are committed to the DIY attitude of the late 80’s/early 90’s HC/Punk underground. Caught in their own little autistic noise universe, they produce obscure, anachronistic Post Post Blues/Aggro/Vintage/Jazz/Punk/Doom/HC/Anti/Sludge/Noise Rock.
Personal disasters and calamities are dissected textually, as well the dark side of human existence, politics and entertainment industry. Ordinary madness with a wink and smack your leg funny.
Over time BUG have released many records at renowned Austrian labels like ROCK IS HELL/ INTERSTELLAR/NOISEAPPEAL Records. BUG make music with sisters and brothers in their mind’s eye like ZENI GEVA, ACHEBORN, ZEN GUERILLA, KURT, AGAINST ME, KEELHAUL, SENSUAL LOVE, ANALENA, WUNSCHKINDER, FRESNEL, BREATHER RESIST, RIVERWITCH , HSD, FUCKHEAD, PHILLIP Q., TODESSTERN, MADE OUT OF BABIES, DISGRACIA LEGEND, REFLECTOR, OXBOW, TEN VOLT SHOCK, UNHOLD, UNSANE, BETONGABI, TURN OUT, MEN KILLING MEN, JULITH KRISHUN, NEUME, IZEN, ARABROT, NARROWS….
BUG, as seen by the rest of the world:
„….This song says: don’t even think of trying to fuck with me, because you’ll be stone cold dead a second after….” Cracked
„ ….whirring walls of sound and fierce Noiserock….“ Big Kult
„ ….With „Klotho” BUG provides a genius companion, who assists in exploring the dark corners in our minds while providing the perfect soundtrack including catharsis. It should be understood that lyrically and musically the gauntlet is of greater importance than the velvet glove….“ Noisy neighbors
„ ….Bug are brutal and seem vile and vicious without fitting into any cut and dried categories….“ broken violence
