The SHIT are a heavy hitting four piece Garage Rock & Roll band from Berne, Switzerland. Featuring Robert Butler, Pitli Hertig, Franz Hausamman and Philipp Thoeni, veterans of the Swiss underground music scene. Formed in 2010, the group originated their sound on a combination of guitar fueled 60's garage and psychedelia and 70's punk rock. They play a modern blend of Rock & Roll rooted in a classic "3 Chord" song structure, along with a healthy dose of high energy.
The SHIT are currently promoting ''Dingleberry Fields Forever'' their debut long playing album on Subversiv Records. Produced in extreme desert heat by David Catching at his legendary Rancho De La Luna Studio in Joshua Tree, California. Combing the engineering genius of Edmund Monsef, the two have cooked up The SHIT into a 'Desert Rock & Roll' bomb ready to explode your mind. Featuring a stunning list of guest musicians from such bands as Masters Of Reality, Eagles Of Death Metal, Earthlings and former members of The Dead Brothers and Queens Of The Stone Age. This record is well rounded, beefy and full of flavor, tasty enough to satisfy the appetite of many Rock & Roll fans.
Meanwhile back in Switzerland The SHIT are kicking some serious ass. They are traveling around the country promoting their new release with live concerts and radio interviews with great response. Since the official release on the 25th of May the group's plan to ''play as much as humanly possible'' has began to slowly unfold. And as festival and concert dates continue pouring in it looks like 2012 is when The SHIT really starts to hit the fan. The band is always on the look out for great gigs, so feel free to contact us. The SHIT features Voodoo Rhythm & Subversiv recording artists and are members of such current local legends as: Da Cruz, Unhold, The Come N Go, The Licks, Pierre Omer & The Stewart Garages Conspiracy Crew, King Pepe, The Bigger Club, The Fuckadies, Reverend Beatman's Blues Trash Trio, The Lords Of Lose and many others.
