Biography

There are at least three artists with this name:

1) Australian Heavy Metal Band (1981 ~ Present)

Taipan are a 3 piece from Melbourne that has helped pioneer Heavy metal in Australia.
Their first e.p Breakout, sold 10,000 copies in Europe and the band has a strong worldwide fan base.They reformed in 2007 to record Stonewitch and have another album Flamethrower that has just been released & will be available on itunes shortly.

2) psychedelic noisy rock band, Steve Austin’s (Today Is The Day) side project:

Taipan was birthed on a bus hurtling through Eastern Europe in October of 1999 in the midst of a Today is the Day tour. The complexities and trials hatched during that time period awakened a need for a more direct, stripped down form of musical expression. Taipan is a precise, direct line: three men in a small room blasting out rock and roll the way the Stooges did; the way the MC5 did; the way Black Flag and Flipper did; the way AC/DC used to. That is, if they’d all been dropping large quantities of acid, and listening to King Crimson and Hank Williams Sr. in a dark room for weeks at a clip. On vocals and guitar, Steve Austin has been exceptionally true to the noise rock and extreme music idiom for a decade with Today is the Day, having crafted three full length albums for the legendary Amphetamine Reptile Records, and another six on Relapse.
