MUCKY PUP Kicks Off European Tour; Video Available
New Jersey-bred MUCKY PUP, known for its "schizophrenic combination of juvenile humor, political sarcasm and thick-as-fuck riffs," kicked off a reunion headlining tour of Europe this past Friday, August 28 at Turock in Essen, Germany.
Fan-filmed video footage of the show can be viewed below (courtesy of "stoneagelightning").
MUCKY PUP began as an American hardcore band formed in Bergenfield, New Jersey in 1985, when brothers John (drums) and Chris Milnes (vocals) joined up with Dan Nastasi (guitar) and former HADES member Scott LePage (bass). The band went through various incarnations and several musical style changes while gaining minor success in both the USA and Europe. Arguably, their breakthrough moment occurred when Berke Breathed picked their songwriting contest entry for release with a 1987 Bloom County comic strip compilation. However, their European success, based on strong tours and charting for the 1989 "A Boy in a Man's World" album, surpassed all recognition achieved in their home country.
