Biography

Hull, UK (1996 – 2009)

Shitball are a punk metal band from Hull, UK formed in 1996. Guitarist and vocalist Tommy Concrete, previously of Concrete Head, Warp Spasm & Cosmic Juggernaut alongside drummer Gareth Baker of Vest & Bulletproof decided to form a band influenced by bands such as The Exploited, Napalm Death, Motorhead, Black Flag & D.O.A.with a self depreciating D.I.Y. dynamic. The first rehearsal was the recording session for their debut LP ‘Mutronic Booboo’ , recorded on a four track in a semi derelict wharehouse by the river in Hull. The name came about when they were described as ‘sounding like Madball but shit’

A few months later Shitball went back into the studio to record their 2nd LP ‘When I look at you I feel like I wanna die’. A music video for the track ‘Suit twats go mad’ was made by director Zorg Traveller who alongside Tommy Concrete played in electronic punk band Dog Muck.

Shitball were expanded to a three piece with Matt Dennet joining the band on bass & vocals. To celebrate this, Shitball recorded their 3rd LP ‘The day I stopped liking metal was the day Shitball sold out’ this LP was mainly tracks from ‘Mutronic Booboo’ re-recorded plus a few new ones. At the end of the year Shitball and played their debut gig. Zorg Traveller also directed a video for the track ‘Mouf but foughts’

In 1997 Shitball recorded ‘The hot summer breeze gives me the nuts of a wild boars’ which was the first LP with Matt Dennet contributing. This led to the music gaining a traditional heavy metal element to the grind/hardcore basis. At the end of the year Shitball recorded their 5th LP, namely ‘It’s beyond scooping Matthew’. Shitball also played a few rare gigs.
