Trupa Trupa from Gdansk, Poland, releases a guitar album on which US new wave is combined with British influences and mild psychedelics.
Trupa Trupa will perform on 15 September at Gdynia Film Festival.
There are several things that can be accomplished in nine minutes. You could make and drink a cup of tea, albeit not a very well brewed one and you’re likely to burn your tongue, or attempt to exercise, and fall over in a heap and just about recover, or you could listen to a song filled with guitars so scuzzy that they look like they’ve just been out on the town with Pete Doherty.
Headache on tape! You can get a copy from a limited edition of 100 at www.bluetapes.co.uk.
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.
