"Like Hole, but funnier" is how Breakfast MUFF, the three-piece twee-trash-punk band from Glasgow, describe themselves.
They took their current form - Cal (Youngstrr Joey, Spinning Coin, others), Eilidh and Simone (both of FROTH), each switching between instruments multiple times throughout a set - last December after forming as "Klitterati" just three hours before a show and with just ten minutes of practice. The result is a band that reminds us of what music should be all about; a bunch of friends having fun. Last year Breakfast Muff released an album, an EP and a single with various labels and played 45 shows, both at home in Glasgow and touring in the UK. They have previously supported artists such as Diet Cig (US), Colleen Green (US), The Parrots (Spain), Mike Watt (US), The Nightingales (UK) and have toured with Spinning Coin and Caramel (members of Joanna Gruesome).
Born from the still smouldering ashes of Glasgow psychedelic indie punks The Yawns Lush Purr feature the song writing talents of Gavin Will, rhythm section of Emma Smith and Rikki Will. With the inclusion of guitar/synth wizard Oreste Fazio of Mirror Parties the current line-up was formed in 2015. Lyrically, humorously melancholic. Musically, wild. One minute lo-fi jangly pop the next full on psychedelic fuzz.
Lush Purr have recently completed a successful week long UK tour and have played shows alongside Cate Le Bon, Ulrika Spacek, The Wave Pictures, Dignan Porch and Holy Wave and played SWN Festival in Cardiff.
After a number of compilation appearances The new Lush Purr album 'Cuckoo waltz' was released on cassette in October 2016 by Fuzzkill/Electropapknit Records and is getting re-released in May 2017 on Vinyl LP by Song, By Toad Records.
Lush Purr were also recently nominated for 'Best Newcomer' at the SAMAs(Scottish Alternative Music Awards)
