The Big Nose Attack is an alternative blues / rock duo formed in Athens in spring 2011. In almost 3 years of life, the band has managed to make many appearances all over Greece and Europe having 2 full length albums and the soundtrack from a short film in their trunk!

Brothers ‘Boogieman’ (guitar / vocals) and ‘Little Tonnie’ (drums) were for years the core of the blues trio ‘Down & Out’, with whom they’ve learned the blues from the best as they have been the opening act for the likes of Gary Moore, Johnny Winter, the Sonics, ZZ Top, and had played in prestigious festivals in Greece and abroad.

The Big Nose Attack nevertheless escapes from the classic stereotypes of blues and marries again with newer sounds. Inspired by the old (RL Burnside, Junior Kimbrough, Tom Waits, Captain Beefheart) and more contemporary music (the Black Keys, the White Stripes, CW Stoneking, Seasick Steve) the band rocks out the most nasty and fuzzy alternative blues!

Their new, sea inspired, album titled “Paint It Blue” just came out, so the band is sailing all over Europe playing gigs and promoting the album.
