The Shabbab - Big Brother

The Shabbab - Big Brother
Hailing from Tel Aviv, Beirut and Middle East Brunswick - The Shabbab have been hard at work on their debut LP, Garlic. Released via Melbourne independent, Hive Minds, Garlic was recorded in a caravan in the middle of nowhere (Wattle Glen - the outskirts of Melbourne), produced by the band and mastered by Mikey Young (Eddy Current Suppression Ring/Total Control).

Sharing experiences of their lives abroad to their lives in a new home away from home, The Shabbab bring their eclectic backgrounds together to create a high energy and original sound. Think Tarantino making love to the Gang of Four and giving birth to an even more punk rock Rachid Taha.

2015 saw the release of The Shabbab’s 7-inch, ‘The Wind’/’Baby’s Gonna Get Deported’, backed with an Australian national tour, a tour of Asia, visiting Singapore, Cambodia and South Korea as well as headlining Falls Festival 2015 Village Stage. Adding to the year’s accolades, the boat-people who stole your heart have also supported the likes of Paul Kelly, Kid Congo & The Pink Monkey Birds (USA), Pond, Graveyard Train, Acid Baby Jesus (GRE), Andy Boay (Mac DeMarco/Tonstartssbandht) (USA) and Guantanamo Baywatch (USA).

About this track...
