Bio

Led by charismatic leader figure, gravel-voiced frontman Reverend Ray, WTBP's absurd nom-de-plume has catapulted them into bars, bills and best of lists. Of late these blokes are on a good wicket in the touring department, selling out their recent 7" headline tour, playing with fellow Adelaidians Bad//Dreems and sharing stages with Courtney Barnett, Cloud Nothings and King Gizzard. They dug deep with a memorable showing at BIGSOUND 2016, and landed an Unearthed slot at Groovin' the Moo.

These guys are, like, really from Adelaide. We know. Not quite the buzzing musical metropolis. But WTBP's enthusiasm for all things South Australian, from Port Adelaide Football Club to South Australian landmarks (don’t mention Snowtown) is awe-inspiring. Coopers. The Exeter Hotel. The Great Australian Bight. You get the picture. Adelaide stuff. This allegiance saw ‘em nominated for a whopping SIX South Australian Music Awards last year, including Best Release and Best Song.
