The Beasts of Bourbon grew from simply being a side project to become a true supergroup of the Australian pub rock scene. Forming in Sydney in 1983, the original Beasts lineup comprised Tex Perkins (vocals, later of the Cruel Sea), Spencer P. Jones(guitar, also with the Johnnys), James Baker (drums, and a Hoodoo Guru , Dubrovniks , ...) and a pair of Scientists in guitarist Kim Salmon and bassist Boris Sudjovic. The band began playing together in small venues in Sydney, recording their first album, "The Axeman's Jazz" in a single afternoon in 1984. Despite the album becoming an underground success, the Beasts continued to be just a side project for its members. It wasn't until 1988 that this situation began to change. With both the Johnnys and the Scientists imploding, the Beasts reformed to record arguably their best album, "Sour Mash". The swamp-rock of "The Axeman's Jazz" had given way to a fusion of blues-based pub rock and punk with great effect. 1990's "Black Milk" expanded on this idea. 1991's "The Low Road" saw the addition of two new members. Baker and Sudjovic left the group to concentrate on their band the Dubrovniks, and were replaced by Tony Pola and Brian Hooper from Salmon's then band the Surrealists. In 1993, a double album "From the Belly of the Beasts" was released to mark the group's ten years together, and the group toured extensively in support of the album. Following the tour, it appeared as if the Beasts would announce their demise. Salmon left the group to concentrate on the Surrealists and Perkins' group the Cruel Sea was achieving huge success with their album "The Honeymoon is Over". However, the group reformed in 1996 with former Divinyl Charlie Owen on guitar and released "Gone" in 1997. The album received lukewarm reviews, but managed to produce a minor single in the form of "Saturated".
In 2003, they reformed to record a live album, "Low Life", released on Spooky Records. In 2006, they reformed to play in the Big Day Out Festival around Australia and New Zealand.In late December 2006 it was announced that the Beasts of Bourbon had signed an exclusive worldwide recording deal with and they are set to release their new album "Little Animals" on April 21, 2007 .Recently the group played alongside other Autralian bands and artists at the Rockin' for Rights concert, which protested the unfair Workchoices legislation of the Howard Government. After a show in Berlin in April 2008, the group cancelled their remaining tour dates and ended the band. No reason was given for the group's split.
