The Beards (@The_Beards) attest to having a miserable time being interviewed by the clean-shaven Russ Borris. They did have glowing reviews for the work of cameraman Tim Pierson, however. Wanna guess why?

Nathaniel Beard (bass), John Beardman Jr. (drums), Facey McStublington (guitar), and Johann Beardraven (vocals, saxophone and keytar) have been recording together in their native Australia since 2005.

They cite among their inspirations Chuck Norris’ beard (not the man, just the beard); and ZZ Top, obviously.
