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, with every aspect of the songs being played live without the use of loopers or instrument samplers.
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), followed by a sold out release show, 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 numerous internationally recognised acts such as Truckfighters (Sweden), Ash Grunwald, Conan (UK), Uncle Acid & the Deadbeats (UK), Radio Moscow (USA), Nick Oliveri (of Queens of the Stone Age and Kyuss) – including a performance with Nick Oliveri at Holy Land Festival in March 2017 – and many more.
The band is currently working on releasing their second full length LP, with national and international tour plans throughout 2019.
