Messer Chups


14 Nov 2023




They recently signed their first US record deal with Los Angeles based MuSick Recordings, one of the premier garage rock and surf music labels (The Boss Martians, Satan’s Pilgrims, The Moog, Space Cossacks, etc), who are releasing the band’s new album Taste The Blood of Guitaracula.

While the band’s instrumental sound is hard to neatly categorize, it’s safe to say that it would be embraced by fans of rockabilly, horror punk, vintage surf records, Italian slasher films, My Life with the Thrill Kill Kult, Pulp Fiction, lounge music, the there-min, The Cramps, and the theme song from The Munsters. Their catchy music combines surf, vintage Russian melodies, rare film samples from the 50s and 60s, scratchy historical recordings, and lounge loops.

Live, they explode with garage-punk intensity, all played against video-collaged backdrop of mid-century trashy cult and horror movie clips featuring Russ Meyer and Ed Wood, and stars like Vampira and Bela Lugosi in a zombie mash-up!
