Biography

Novato, San Francisco CA, United States (1989 – 2000, 2002 – present)

Nuclear Rabbit is a California band, started in Novato. The band’s music has been called metal, but incorporates a variety of other styles, making classification difficult. Known for its unusual sound and lyrics, and bassist Jean Baudin’s 11-string bass, Nuclear Rabbit has a large fan base despite being a perpetually underground and independent band. They are perhaps the most well known underground band in California, having bands like Papa Roach, Alien Ant Farm, and Deftones opening up for them.

Nuclear Rabbit was started in 1989 by bassist Jean Baudin, who was influenced by a variety of music styles, including Fishbone and Bad Brains, and envisioned having a band not bound to any genre. He was soon joined by guitarist Pat Garner and drummer Steve “Stymie” Sigaty. Originally Baudin performed the vocals, but Greg Parrish was eventually asked to step in as vocalist. Nuclear Rabbit incorporates a variety of genres in their music, including metal, funk, ska, hardcore, punk, jazz, East Indian, and Egyptian. Baudin uses a variety of bass techniques, including tapping, slapping and popping. Their music is often characterized by sudden tempo changes and wacky musical stylings.

The band recorded several demos, some of which are included on the compilation Vicuna. After a quick switch of guitarists, Nuclear Rabbit recorded their first full-length album, Intestinal Fortitude, in 1998. Soon after, Greg left the band and was replaced by Jon Scullion, with whom they recorded their More Human EP.

    So weird, so good, so many strings on that bass. One of my favorite bands the perfect mix of virtuoso playing, bat shit insanity, and a bunch of musical styles jammed together to form something entirely unique. My Girls Got Guys and Santa Claus is Selling Crack are their top tracks for me. My girls got guts she lets me borrow don't have to ask her when I want to take them out when it gets cold I wear them like a scarf wrap them around my neck her big intestinal track

    Listening to 2000's More Human - man, it's like the good old 80's Mr. Bungle. Not sure if I'm all happy about such "tribute", but if I didn't know Bungle, I'd really enjoy it.
