biography:
We play Post Noise Rock.

We had minimal lineup changes (2 new guys in 20 years).

We are doing DIY shows since 1997, totally honored to share stages with the crème de la crème of metal/HC/Punk/Noise Rock underground (NAG, OKKULTUKRATI, MAUD, BL'AST, THE KOJN, IT'S EVERYONE ELSE, ARABROT, RIVERWITCH, FUCKHEAD, NAILEATER, INSANITY ALERT, ZETKIN, REFLECTOR, OXBOW, AGAINST ME, ANALENA, UNSANE, ZENI GEVA, TEN VOLT SHOCK, ACHEBORN, ZEN GUERILLA, KURT, KEELHAUL, SENSUAL LOVE, WUNSCHKINDER, FRESNEL, BREATHER RESIST, MADE OUT OF BABIES, UNHOLD, NEUME, NARROWS, UNITED MOVEMENT, BLACK BOOKS, PLANKS…).

We had various car breakdowns, numerous amp/gear wear and tear and yes, we “forgot” all our merch at a club once.

We have approximately 8 records under our belt. Thanks to our fellow Austrian Labels INTERSTELLAR RECORDS / NOISEAPPEAL / ROCK IS HELL!

That is what the media say about us:
“…a cacophony of noise and great to freak out, even with the rambling drunken sounds of the vocalist.” Mass Movement Magazine
„Brutaler Noise-Rock, raffiniert aber nicht verspielt, Big’n oder Zeni Geva als Referenz, aber diese Referenzen sollten sich eigentlich in der 20-jährigen Bandgeschichte relativieren. Denn Bug ist Bug ist Bug.“ freistil magazin
“…big grumbly riffs, big grumbly vocals and an overall apocalyptic vibe.” Collective-Zine
„…mit der Gitarre als Mundharmonika, Gesang wie vom nihilistischen ‘Rock’n’Roll Messias’, angezogener Noiseschraube und finalem Troll-Hopsassa.“ Bad Alchemy
„… bekommt man hier ein schwer verdauliches, jedoch durchaus schmackhaftes Stück Hass geboten, das von ätzendem Witz und finsterer Ablehnung nur so strotzt. Freunde des Kaputten kommen sicher auf ihre Kosten, passt selbstverständlich auch gut zu Selbstgebranntem.“ pitfire.net
“Bug devient incontrôlable et azimuté après avoir montrer tout son savoir-faire dans l’art de conduire un bulldozer, son air de tueur à sang froid lui va à ravir, l’attaque est rarement frontal et Bug n’en est que plus dangereux et convaincant.” perteetfracas.org
„If you like your hardcore chaotic and eclectic but still hard hitting.” a place to burn
„Bug ist eine Konstante im heimischen Noiserockkosmos.“ kapuzine
