- Bacchus Baracus
Bacchus Baracus formed in 2010 over a mutual love of beer, joints, whisky, fuzz pedals and all that's groovy and down tuned. Based in Glasgow, they recorded a 4 song e.p. Growler and released it themselves, before it’s digital re-release through Wasted State Records at the tail end of 2012. During this time they played all round Scotland building up a loyal following wherever they went.
