Box The Jesuit

Sydney-based Box The Jesuit formed in October 1986 from the ashes of underground angst merchants Madroom.

Box The Jesuit was headed up by the infamous duo from Madroom, violinist/percussionist Susie Beauchamp (who was once described as “a blend of innocence and evil mischief”) and entertainer and showman, singer and guitarist, Goose – who would strut on stage, fall down, gesture maniacally, grin and roll his eyes like an ecstatic psychotic let loose amongst an audience.

The band had a reputation for energetic live performances full of glitz and innuendo, dynamic lighting, explosions (if the budget permitted), and loud, bass-heavy, inspiring noise with a lyrical and musical emphasis on that source of all life and creative force – sexual activity. In fact, sexual obsession was one of the more distinctive themes of Box The Jesuit lyrics.
