A loud mix of dirty delta blues, punk music, Jazz, hip hop, and electronica depending on the mood. With four albums released and a considerable number of 7-inch singles, the duo has been touring between South and North America always bringing the boogie party.
During these nearly 12 years, Jesus & The Groupies have collaborated with lots of talented artists from all over the globe, talents such as Kerry Davis (Red Aunts), Walter Daniels (Jack O Fire/ Bigfoot Chester), Texacala Jones (Tex And The Horseheads), Jerry Teel (Chrome Cranks/Honeymoon Killers), and Chet Weise (Thee Immortal Lee County Killers) just to name a few. Luis Tissot takes care of the guitars, organs and loops, and Marco Butcher does the guitars, vocals and drums. The music is very stripped down and in your face like it’s supposed to be!

Insomnia is the fifth Jesus and The Groupies album and it came out of a very experimental phase for many reasons. The pandemic meant nobody could be in the same room at the same time, so the idea that one could literally go anywhere with music became a kind of therapy. The old electronica effects long forgotten by the masses found a way back to life with Jesus and The Groupies and became a challenge to try to extract the best out of the worst technology available. Imagine a place where Hip Hop meets garage punk and all kinds of loud and renegade music that some kid out there could think is really cool. Old plastic Keyboards scooped from Goodwill meet a very old second-hand jazz kit drumset with guitars that sounds like they came straight out of an amp that was left outside on a rainy day, then tossed down the stairs for good measure.
12 songs that will tell you a little of the times we’re living and how Luis and Marco managed to circumvent obstacles in this crazy world we live in and tune into the music. Who knows? Some people would say it’s just noise but they call it Insomnia!
