ABOUT

5 piece bunch of gays and theys from the UK with an attitude problem. 

You have been warned. 

Female fronted, sided and backed, Bitchin' Hour are the South East of England's answer to the question: 'Huuuh!?!'. Leonie Wilson leads this witch-rock concussion on vocals with a range that some commentators have called scientifically improbable. Joining bass player and noir movie heroine, Lara Mason; ginger guitar tree Becky Bird; drummer slash registered thunderstorm, Beth Chapell and the relentlessly young, talented and holographic, guitarist Laura Pike. 

 

Formed in the 2020 post-lockdown hellscape, Bitchin' Hour have recently been voted 'LEAST LIKELY TO HAVE REAL JOBS.' by Uptight Karens Magazine. 

 

If you like loud, if you like to rock and if you don't need to operate heavy machinery for work, BH are your absolute dream band. Or as Trading Standards have recommended we say: absolute nightmare.

"If you like your music female-fronted, sided and backed, then you need to jump on this IMMEDIATELY " - Ethan Lawrence - Actor
"Deliciously down and dirty rock and roll...you wouldn't want to mess with them, would you?!" Melita Dennett -BBC Introducing DJ

Leonie Wilson - Vocals 

Leonie could hold a note before she could talk. She is classically trained and has performed at the NEC Arena and the Victoria in London. She has been known to perform in all weathers - wind and rain. She runs a blog about mental health, witchcraft and alternative lifestyles called 'The Witch and the Hounds'. The two loves of her life are her fellow dreamboats in Bitchin' Hour and her wee pup, Gimli.

Beth Chapell - Drums

Beth is a powerhouse - if she's not drumming with Blood Buzzards, managing several artists under Kiss of Beths Management or reviewing artists, she still finds time to present badass new music on B More With Us Radio. With her double black belt, Beth puts the dropkick in kick snare kick kick snare.

Becky Bird - Guitars

Bird brings nearly sixteen years of guitar experience to Bitchin' Hour's sound - described as 'relentlessly fuzzy'. She is a published poet, with her debut book 'Shrinking Ultraviolet' published in 2017. Bird gets lost quite a lot - the most common rehearsal phrase being 'Where's Bird?' and she is still the band's designated tour bus driver despite this.

Lara Mason - Bass

Heck! Producing ethereal organic music under Elleodin, Lara brings the atmospheric groove to Bitchin' Hour. She founded Aviary Bridge Records and has been actively involved in the careers of over 50 artists. Lara is the most wholesome member of the outfit and ancient prophecies have dictated that she will never ever swear.

Laura 'Jenny Z' Pike - Guitars

Jenny Z is mostly on her phone but she swears that she isn't. She is a graphic designer, producing material under the name 'Jenny Z Draws' and produces all the designs for Bitchin' Hour and other artists. She is an avid gamer and Jenny brings the metal sensibility to the group: finding riffs that are as dark as a black hole's curtains.
