Guitarplayer Fred had played in a local grungetype band and bassplayer Benno had played in hardcoreband Past Hate and in punkband Yo-Thrash. When at a Hellacopters-show, they decided to form a band, with musical influences from Zeke, Nashville Pussy and Supersuckers. When Fred decided to quit, several guitarplayers came and went. On 21 november 2001 they had their first show as a three-piece, opening for PeterPan Speedrock, in Manifesto-Hoorn (NL). The name Beavershot was set. In 2002 they recorded the first 5-trackdemo, called "Wanna go Fast??" They got some good response on that, and their liveshows became poular amongst the local rockscene. Beavershot recorded their debut cd for Rumble Records in 2004, called "Kings of Dir"t, and this record had some good reviews in Holland and in some other countries. They were asked to play all over Holland, and even on some big festivals. In 2006 they recorded their 2nd album called "Threesevennine", named after the Peterbilt Truck Type 379.
It came out on Tear-It-Up-Records, based in Eindhoven. Due to this album they were invited to play some gigs in USA, and this little Dutch band decided to fly in and play 6 gigs overthere. This little tour was called The American Blitzkrieg 2007. In the summer of 2008 they went on a tour with San Fransisco punkrockers The White Barons, which took them to Germany, Holland and Finland. They played show nr.
100 in Turku-Finland. During spring 2009 they recorded the 3rd album, and this will be released late 2009. Note: The first self-titled album of Rotterdam-based rockabillyband 69Beavershot was recorded under the name Beavershot. Read more on Last.fm.
