Chubby Thunderous Bad Kush Masters sign to Riff Rock Records and release new video
"Silly name or not, I’ll take this shit any day of the week" - The Obelisk
"Will take you from clean shaven to massive, dirty beard in under 30 minutes"
Heavy, filthy blues trio Chubby Thunderous Bad Kush Masters have signed to Riff Rock Records.
The London band (including former Dopefight frontman Owen Carty) have been turning heads on the UK’s burgeoning underground scene not least because of their combination of tie-dye and corpsepaint, but with a staggeringly heavy live show that has everyone who sees them agreeing that they’re about to become huge.
In the video for Mother Chub, CTBKM channels the Wu Tang Clan and their other 90s hip hop heroes for the type of music video you only ever saw when you woke up on the couch at 4am after a bad batch of brownies.
The band’s tongue-in-cheek approach belies their dedication to all things heavy and riff-shaped. A jaw-droppingly powerful live band, Bad Kush have already completed two European tours and repeated circuits of the UK’s underground scene since their inception in late 2014. Having supported the likes of Slabdragger, Dopethrone and Honky, audience members have picked up on the band’s vibe and now blow bubbles in appreciation of the band’s heaviest riffs.
