The idea of a band, which would have the energy of the punk, strong rock’n’roll riffs, catchy chorus and sensibility of the blues, was born in 1990. The idea had been percolating for 12 years, while the members were playing in other bands. It had been changing, while THE BITE was searching for people who were growing up on the streets and who had the “hunger” necessary for a good gig, the people who were, and will be, a part of the team and who can still contribute with their own mark and signature. Those people can listen, play and live different music, but could also and without a problem, stand by each other and create something new.
First official material, which is still topical, they recorded in the Dadi’s (ZONE B) studio, where they also did the production. Considering his great experience as musician from the blues band and the producer, Dadi gives his mark on the raw energy of THE BITE’s music.
As a band that concentrates on club gigs, THE BITE performs in various clubs in Belgrade and other towns. Although it sounds the best in big concerts, band retains the attitude that the contact with the audience is very important, and that they should not “run away” from “small” gigs.
From EXIT to other various small festivals, to the clubs where only 50 visitors can fit in, THE BITE expands its audience, offering them what every real rock’n’roll band needs to have: enormous and persevering energy, catchy songs with slogan-like choruses, and what is the most important thing – good times.
