Sharkbait

Sharkbait (one word) was a San Francisco based industrial group active from 1986 to 1996. They were a true industrial band, in the vain of Einstürzende Neubauten, using multiple percussionists in their songs and live performances. Everything from Taiko drums, sheets of metal, oil drums, huge metal springs, and many other tribal percussion instruments were used. On top of the rythmic assault were layers of noise, distorted and manipulated instruments, tape loops, samples, and vocals by multiple singers (male and female).

Debut album "Taste The Blood Of Zombina & The Skeletones" was released in late 2002 and quickly sold out following gigs up and down the country with the likes of The Damned, The Misfits, and The Meteors.
