THE BAND

BONSAI KITTEN have been a source of energy and inspiration for some years now. Founder and riot grrrl Tiger Lilly Marleen is "a mind-blowing whirlwind on stage with a distinctive strikingly sultry voice" (Berliner Zeitung).  2019 started off with a new line up of blues rocker Wally on lead-guitar, known from bands such as Psychopunch and Marc "Speedy" Reign, former drummer of metal bands Morgoth and Destruction. Together with long time member Spoxx on 3-string bass they wrote and live-recorded a new album in the summer of 2019. 

LOVE AND LET DIE will be released on Friday the 13th of March 2020 on Sunny Bastard Records / Soul Food with a unique sound that combines the spirit of Woodstock with Wacken.

 

HISTORY:

BONSAI KITTEN hit the music scene with the release of their self titled debut EP in 2007 which was released for the Japanese market only on the record label On The Hill. The Ep is sold out.

After excessive touring throughout Europe BONSAI KITTEN released their first full length album Done With Hell in 2011, featuring Koefte DeVille, singer of legendary Punk´A´Billy band MAD SIN on the title track. The album was released on the German record label Wolverine Records. In 2012 already, BONSAI KITTEN released a collection of songs in a limited edition with Welcome To My World which sold out quickly. With a change in line up BONSAI KITTEN released Occupy Yourself! in 2014, which earned them the reputation as one of the most exciting new bands to come out of Germany. Taking a stand for a multi-cultural mind set, against racial prejudice, discrimination and for equal rights, to make the world a better place, BONSAI KITTEN is the first band to address these topics so clearly within their scene ever. On September 8th, 2017 BONSAI KITTEN released the album MINDCRAFT on Rough Trade. Its urgency and force also captured the band's sweat-drenched and ecstatic live shows that are fired up by the new line up and the next release in 2020.
