The Songs Born Lion Want to Hear at their ‘Bigger Than Jesus’ Festival

by cassettelistadmin

With their sophomore LP ‘Celebrate the Lie’ being only one year old, Sydney-hard rockers Born Lion have come back swinging with their latest single ‘Bigger Than Jesus’. “This song came after a very tough period for the band. I think there was a collective sense of wanting to just get back to having fun and when we got back in the jam room this is what came out.” said vocalist and guitarist John Bowker. To celebrate the release, the band have curated their own series of mini-festivals taking place early Feb appropriately titled ‘Bigger Than Jesus Fest’, and will be hitting stages in Sydney, Wollongong and Melbourne accompanied by a talented bunch of local acts including Fait Accompli, Ess-Em and a 10 year reunion set from Sydney’s legendary Bitchslap. 

In preparation for the hectic touring fest, we had a chat to John about the songs he can’t wait to hear from the festival lineup.

 

Dropping Honey – ‘Flightless’

I hope Dropping Honey drop some tracks from their first EP Underfoot and first record Snakes and Ladder. I grew up worshipping those guys so to have them on the bill is incredible.

 

Fait Accompli – ‘Highways’

I’d love to hear the new single from Fait Accompli, ‘Highways’.. It’s outstanding. Some of their older jams like False Flags need a run also I believe.

 

Rick Dangerous & the Silkie Bantams – ‘Bruja’

From Rick Dangerous I need me a little Bruja and Thrust Machine!

 

Bitchslap – ‘Misery’

I’d appreciate if Bitchslap could bust out ‘Misery’.

 

Whispering Jackie – ‘Fast Life’

Whispering Jackie I’m only new to but their set was full of bangers last time.. so more of that please! ‘Fast Life’ would be great actually!

 

Ess-Em – ‘Retail Therapy’

From Ess-Em I’d like to hear ‘Retail Therapy’.

 

El Bastardo – ‘Constantly’

From my younger brothers band El Bastardo I wanna hear their latest single ‘Constantly’.. they just keep getting better and better.
