Bio

Slim Jeffries are an explosive punk outfit based in Melbourne, Australia known for fat riffs, in your face lyrics and an electric live performance. Opinionated and unapologetic, these young bucks take inspiration from various pillars in heavy rock/punk history such as Nirvana, Iggy Pop, Hole and The Clash and combine them with the laconic Australiana cynicism of Eddy Current Suppression Ring, Cosmic Psychos and Painters and Dockers.

Founding members Sam Jeffreys (guitar), Andre Ricardo (drums) and Dingo (vocals) began jamming together in 2014 in a tin shed out the back of Ricardo's West Footscray home. Since these humble beginnings, Will Base (guitar), Campbell Mowat (bass) and Bill Black (keys) have gotten on board. The band has performed relentlessly in Melbourne's dingiest pubs and built a devoted following with hard rock lovers around the country. This has led to them back to back slots at Party in the Paddock 2017-2018, supporting hard rock legends Mothers Cake (Austria) and Mammal as well playing with the likes of Pistol Peaches, Sophisticated Dingo, The Pretty Littles, Pseudo Mind Hive, Psychobabel and Public High on Melbourne's pub scene.

Since building a DIY studio at drummer Ricardo's house, the band has been working meticulously on new material with the freedom to experiment and explore their various influences.

2019 looms as a huge year for this maniacal punk outfit with their debut album on the way and a handful of strong shows under their belt. Bring some earplugs, the most padded clothing you own and come along for the ride.

"...I'm scared to think of what this could do to a live audience" - HAPPY

There’s like a skinhead chic to this song. It's frenetic and outraged and deeply sick. I am imagining giant gold nose rings and socio-political oppression – even tho you're cuddling a teddy bear in your profile pic.
