Bio

Filthy Lucre are a duo set to challenge the limits of how big a band can sound with only two members. Taking inspiration from both delta blues and heavy desert rock, the fuzz-soaked riffs will have you wondering if it’s the eras of Muddy Waters or the Californian desert rock scene of the 90's you’re being drawn back to. Their live show is not compromised by the fact there are only two people on stage, the performance is equivalent to their unconventional recording techniques, with every aspect of the songs being played live without the use of loopers or digital technology.

2016 saw the release of their debut 14-track album “Mara”, recorded and produced in Ashland, Oregon U.S.A. by renowned producer Sylvia Massy (known for her work with artists such as Tool, System of a Down, Johnny Cash, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Prince, Spiderbait and many more).

Following their sold out release show for Mara, the band embarked on two East Coast Australian tours and a six week European tour which included spots at Lake On Fire Festival (Austria), Seeknificance (Austria), Free Tree Festival (Austria), and Sound Violence (Portugal).

Throughout the bands career they have supported several internationally recognised artists and bands such as Truckfighters (Sweden), Tex Perkins, Ash Grunwald, Conan (UK), Uncle Acid & the Deadbeats (UK), Radio Moscow (USA), The Beards, and Nick Oliveri (of Queens of the Stone Age and Kyuss), including a performance with Nick Oliveri at Holy Land Festival in March 2017.

The band is currently working on their second full length LP, with national and international tour plans throughout 2019. Watch this space.

14 track album "Mara" by Filthy Lucre, available NOW in-store and online at iTunes Store, Google Play, Amazon Music, CD Baby, and Bandcamp.

Good use of vocal reverb and nice instrumental change-ups to keep you glued to the headphones/subs; Filthy Lucre have their own distinct sound that may remind you of another band, but they have refined it to become their own.

Damn good song. Driving Bass/Drum Groove with catchy guitar riffs and easy melody on the vocals to suit.
