Spiderbait To Play ‘Ivy And The Big Apples’ In Full On New National Tour

Written by Mike Hohnen on November 21, 2016

For two decades, Spiderbait’s third album Ivy And The Big Apples has been heavily rotated on speakers around the world. Now, the band have announced they will be bringing it to punters live and in its entirety for a national tour in March and April 2017.

All 16 rockin’ jams contained within the album will be aired during the run, including hidden gems from the record which were never performed previously, so it’s sure to be a rare opportunity for fans of the band to revisit the blissful days of 1996 Aussie rock once more.

Fun fact: the album copped its name after local woman Ivy Matheson won a local gardening competition on account of her delicious homegrown apples, taking out a headline in a local newspaper which read, ‘Ivy and the Big Apples.’

From those humble beginnings, the album would go on to do great things. Lead single Buy Me A Pony made its way to number one on triple j‘s Hottest 100 of 1996 — something that’d never been done by an Australian artist at that point. Of course, who could forget Calypso, which would make its way on to the official soundtrack for 10 Things I Hate About You.

It’s now time to celebrate this landmark in Australian rock history by sinking a few and nodding along. Just like the old days.
