SPICY BITS OF SCANDAL, also known as SBS, history begins in the year 1979, when vocalist and keyboardist Vilius Kraujalis and guitarist Darius Rutkys, decided to form a rock'n'roll band. Right from the start the band was influenced by DIO, BLACK SABBATH and WHITESNAKE.
The year 1985 saw the band adding a second guitarist Mikaelis Feigelovičius, to their lineup. In the year 1988 SBS played in the festival „Rock Saeits“ in Riga, Latvia and after a year in „Junewalija“ festival in Poland.
In 1996 SBS released an MC - „Mėnulio Šviesa“. There were nine compositions writen by Vilius, Tomas and Vitalis. Founder Vilius Kraujalis was back in the band. The recording was initiated by „Pūkas“, along with producer Giedrius Litvinas. After the release activity stiffed. In 1999 the band celebrated their twentieth anniversary in the biggest Vilnius club - „Karolina“, this show was recording on video tapes.
After a five year pause, in 2005 the band was back again.
The band was choosed to open for ROYAL HUNT in their concert in Vilnius (October 21th 2005), sadly the show was canceled.

The new line-up debuted in „Roko Naktys – 2006“, where besides SBS was „Uriah Heep“ and „Lucifer‘s friend“ ex-vocalist John Lawton. The band's show was well valued by mass media.
In April 2007 SBS released their next album „Tik mėnulio šviesa...“, which was well evaluated by the biggest german webzine „HardHarderHeavy“.
