God Bullies

God Bullies were an American noise-rock band from Kalamazoo, Michigan. They were active from 1986–1995, briefly reunited in the early 2000s and most recently in the summer of 2010 to coincide with the Amphetamine Reptile Records' 25th Anniversary concert.

The band has released material with Alternative Tentacles and Sympathy The Record Industry, but the bulk of their releases were with Amphetamine Reptile Records.

Although God Bullies never found any mainstream success, creepy anthems like "Let's Go To Hell", "Ordinary Man" and "Cemetery", paired with frontman Mike Hard's theatrical delivery and over-the-top stage antics, earned the band a large cult following. God Bullies toured extensively throughout the US and Europe with artists including Hole, The Melvins, Helmet, Tar, Surgery, Cows and Helios Creed.

After God Bullies disbanded in 1995, Mike Hard went on to form Thrall. The majority of Thrall's releases were with Alternative Tentacles. Thrall eventually ran its course, and Hard reunited with God Bullies guitarist David Livingstone and drummer Adam Berg to form Th3y N3v3r Sl33p. This project also featured original Thrall bassist "Queen Bee" Karen Neal. Th3y N3v3r Sl33p went on hiatus in early 2011.

Mike Hard is as of Spring 2012 performing live throughout the mid-west and Texas with a reformed and revamped "THRALL featuring Mike Hard", which includes former Hand Over Head (drummer), Brainsaw and Thrall guitarist-writer Scott Kodrik, former Thrall and Sons of the Gun drummer Cliff Carinci, former BONK, Gepetto Files guitarist Andy "Bongo" Furda, and former Sons of the Gun bassist Pat O'Harris. Hard has plans to release a solo record in 2012.

    For the black vision and tangle in her brains,

    Of the red histories that throbbed in her blue veins.”
