Beef Supreme

Alternative // Carlow, Carlow

Beef Supreme are an alternative roots rock band, birthplace - Carlow, Ireland.

The Beef Supreme sound dances between gritty rock, alt country and protest folk, delivered with intensity and passion. Musically influenced by the likes of Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, Queens of the Stone Age and The Pogues, lyrically leaning towards Karl Marx's hatred of the bourgeoisie, their ever expanding catchy rock crossover set builds year on year.

Since their original formation in 2009, Beef Supreme have released 2 EPs ‘Dark Air Balloons – A short escape of Death and Debt’ and ’Live at the Waffle Lodge’ recorded with Cliff Dean at WL Studios, a self-recorded full length album ‘Presents’, Singles ‘Whistleblower’, ‘The Jerry’, 'Dancing in the Inches' and 'The Flair' gained airplay on 2fm, many programs across KCLR, Radio Nova, Dublin City FM and Dundalk FM.

Beef Supremes music has appeared in a number of indie short films, O.T.T. Wrestling promos and strangely receiving an OFCOM complaint on numerous grounds after the promo video for ‘The Jerry’ being aired at 4pm on a wet Tuesday afternoon on Keep It Country TV. Recent collaborations with Dicemen Productions, Artist Siobhán Jordan and Thom McDermott has increased their visual output
