Biography

Finley, New South Wales, Australia (1991 – present)

Spiderbait are an band formed in 1991 in Finley, New South Wales, Australia which consists of Mark “Kram” Maher (drums, lead vocals), Janet English (bass, vocals) and Damien Whitty (guitar). They have had two top ten albums and another three albums reach the Australian top 40. Their song Buy Me A Pony was #1 on the Triple J Hottest 100 for 1996, and the group enjoyed success with their 2004 #1 Australian hit cover of Black Betty.

When you have as big a celebrity fan as Stephen King, you must be doing something right! The three-piece from Finley, New South Wales, Australia, often jump genres from (Stevie, Calypso) to mutant dance (Arse Huggin’ Pants) - in the course of a single album, no less. And yet, they still manage to rock like mofos (Shazam!, Outta My Head, and - of course - their cover of Black Betty).

The three band members Mark Maher or “Kram” (drums and vocals), Damien Whitty or “Whitt” on guitar and Janet English on bass/vocals come from the small town Finley in southern New South Wales where they jammed together in their youth.

The band moved to Melbourne, Australia where Kram was studying at the Victorian College of the Arts School of Music. The band played its first gig at a loungeroom for a friend’s party. The band soon became part of Melbourne’s punk scene playing gigs at venues like the Tote Hotel in Collingwood, Victoria. They released their first single Circle K on Au-Go-Go Records with an EP titled P’tang Yang Kipper Bang Uh! following in 1992.
