Bio

Slim Jeffries are making a ruckus. Opinionated and unapologetic, the band takes inspiration from 90s grunge culture and combines it with a heathy dose of laconic Australiana cynicism.

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 then, 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 big dog internationals Mothers Cake (Austria) late noughties legends 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.

A bit early Grinspoon doing Nevermind. You can't pass up that energy - it's intoxicating.
