Big John Bates


BE CAREFUL, many of the songs associated with this artist are not by the CURRENT Big John Bates Band. Last FM has added songs from Bates' PREVIOUS band (Big John Bates & the Voodoo Dollz) and the two bands do not share the same sound, style or members. Sorry about any confusion, we have been trying to get them to fix this glitch since 2012. *************************** “Blood, whiskey and knives, Big John Bates “one of Vancouver’s most notorious musicians” (Globe & Mail) knows how to set the mood for trouble.

Last FM has added songs from Bates' PREVIOUS band (Big John Bates & the Voodoo Dollz) and the two bands do not share the same sound, style or members. Sorry about any confusion, we have been trying to get them to fix this glitch since 2012. *************************** “Blood, whiskey and knives, Big John Bates “one of Vancouver’s most notorious musicians” (Globe & Mail) knows how to set the mood for trouble. The music is “backwoods punk with a sinister edge” but there is more, so much more, going on in the crazy collective conscious that is Big John Bates.” Bates is known around the world for enigmatic and energetic live performances, employing power tools and breaking thru the barriers between audience and performer.

The Big John Bates band mixes a Western Gothic style of lyrics into a rock’n’roll explosion. In 2012, Big John Bates hit Jello Biafra’s (Dead Kennedys) radar. Thanks to that introduction, Alternative Tentacles began supporting the EP “Headless Fowl” while BJB was touring with Murder By Death. Bates quickly followed that with the LP “Battered Bones” on Germany’s Rookie Records, which brought them to Quentin Tarantino’s attention while he was scouting music for Django Unchained. They also released two western-themed YouTube videos in 2012 – Amerkin & Taste the Barrel. *************************** Big John has most famously written, sung and performed with the Voodoo Dollz, Annihilator and Bif Naked.

He’s played over 1500 live shows in 20 countries. He’s been removed from backstage by Solomon Burke, chastised by Koko Taylor, has done emergency guitar surgery for the Blasters and was charmed by B.B. King. He was run out of Vegas on a rail, had musicians slip off into the forever and once managed to tour Sicily in a convoy of sports cars.

He played a vineyard on an Italian mountaintop with the flash Andre Williams, got bar-charm lessons from T-Model Ford and had his Falcon’s pickguard signed + kissed by Poison Ivy. He’s saved Brandy Bones from the clutches of Hank3′s crew, performed in abandoned fish-ponds in Belgian squats and German WWII bunkers. There is never a cancel button. Read more on Last.fm.
