Trupa Trupa will perform on 19 August at Port Literacki Festival in Gdańsk.
Blue Tapes and X-Ray Records commissioned noise musician and artist Jason Williams (Hysteresis, Mothers of The Third Reich, Aeliopile, etc) to produce a video for the swirling, bad-tempered 10-minute title track from the album.

Coming all the way from Poland is “Headache”, the latest album effort by Trupa Trupa which has been put on the circuit via the UK-based imprint Blue Tapes And X-Ray Records in early March 2015.
I have to admit that it’s been a while since a rock band was able to give me that real “woah” factor without resorting to completely deconstructing everything altogether.
A lot has recently been said about Trupa Trupa, and very good things at that. All thanks to their new album "Headache", released internationally and noticed by local press and blogs.
This is a pop combo from Gdansk, Poland. Their music ranges between DIY vibes and complexity which makes me think the DIY part is the heart of their music and the complexity is their true talents and capacity.
Trupa Trupa will perform on 27 July at Altonale Festival.
The Polish rock scene will be represented by groups such as Trupa Trupa, a band that plays alt-rock and whose last album, Headache, was released by the English label Blue Tapes and X-Ray Records.
This one blindsided me. I had never heard of Polish band Trupa Trupa before, true; but more for the fact that it came from Blue Tapes, a label that is admittedly eclectic in sonic output but is generally more to the abstract noise/ambient outliers of the musical spectrum (Tashi Dorji, Henry Plotnick, Father Murphy).
