Games, Brrraaains & A Head-Banging Life are very pleased to bring you an interview with London based band, Chubby Thunderous Bad Kush Masters.
The band have been turning heads on the UK’s burgeoning underground scene. Their debut EP ‘Earth Hog’ fused sludgy, blues riffs with stoner rock overtones which was followed by the Split EP ‘Special’ with Ten Foot Wizard in 2017.
Now, Chubby Thunderous Bad Kush Masters are set to release their debut album Come & Chutney via Riff Rock Records on July 13th 2018.
The album features several guest appearances including guest vocals from Chantal Brown of Vodun, guest guitar solo from Gary Harkin of Ten Foot Wizard, and guest keyboards by Thom Carter of Riddles on closing track ‘Psychedelic Hallucinogenic Vagrancy’.

1. Hi guys! Thanks for talking with us. Now I’m sure you get this all the time but I have to ask…where did you come with with your band name?
You’re actually the first person that’s asked us! We wanted something edgy and cool that referenced drugs and how good at drugs we are, especially bad drugs. Some drugs can make you fat and angry, too, so we wanted to make sure that was in there.
2. Describe your sound in just three words.
Solid state boogie.
3. Your debut album, Come and Chutney is right around the corner! How are feeling about it?
Excited! We can’t wait to get rid of all these boxes of records and finally get our living room back.
4. You’re not pulling any punches with the track Döner Trump. What prompted such a strong statement?
We like kebabs and we don’t like Trump so we did a song about both together. We’ve got something special planned for July 13th with this one; it’s really about people being together to make it through all the shite. We might piss off them vegans who hate Trump AND kebabs, but a falafel hummus wrap is ok with us as long as there’s chilli sauce (and garlic sauce for the vegetarians).
5. What does the rest of 2018 look like for Chubby Thunderous Bad Kush Masters?
We’ve got a few gigs here and there (End of the World fest, Gizzardfest, Riff Fest) and then a homecoming Irish tour with Elder Druid in September. We’re stoked to finally have a chance to visit the Tayto factory together!
