The Shit are Robert Butler (Lead Vocals & Guitar), Pit Lee Hertig (Drums), Philipp Thoeni (Bass) and Franz Hausammann (Guitar) who formed the band in the fall of 2010 bubbling up from the vast, dirty corners of the Swiss underground music scene from bands like The Come N’ Go, Reverend Beat-Man’s Blues Trash Trio, Unhold, The Licks, Miracle Workers (US), King Pepe, Da Cruz, The Fuckadies, Ray Wilko, Bishop’s Daughter and dozens of more groups you never heard of.

THE SHIT are a garage Rock And Roll band from Bern, Switzerland. Loaded with lots of FUZZ, primitive beats and a whole lot of complaining about love, life and all the crap in between.

After travelling to Joshua Tree, California to record The Shit’s first release, “Dingleberry Fields Forever” in 2012 (Subversiv Records), the band chose to stay closer to home for the production and recording of their second album, working with producer Matt Bordin at Outside Inside Analog Studios near Venice, Italy. “N°2” also features an amazing list of guest musicians such as Delaney Davidson and Pierre Omer (Dead Brothers) and David Catching (QOTSA, Eagles of Death Metal) among others!

“Rue du Chocolat” is a mixture between the Boogie, Butt-Rock of the first album and more straight-forward Rock & Roll sound, heavily featuring The Shit’s trademark “wall of guitar” sound and of course their one-of-a-kind sense of humor! The Shit will be available for bookings in Fall/Winter 2016/17. Live shows will also feature Roland Bucher and Christian Aregger - Two drums and Three guitars! 

It’s full of everything that’s good about rock n roll, and with Mr Catching himself playing guitar on a load of tracks as well as producing it, you know that’s the push you need to convince you that this is well worth a listen. There’s something in this for everyone; whether it’s the nod to a time gone by music-wise but with a modern slant, or whether you just want to be entertained, amused and a little turned on by an album, this is for you.
