Black Pus announce UK & European tour

Black Pus AKA Brian Chippendale, one half of noise-rock gods Lightning Bolt, will be taking his hard-hitting solo project to UK shores and on into mainland Europe this September and October including dates in London, Bristol, Leeds, and Birmingham with more dates to be announced.

Expect to hear tracks off his newest release ‘All My Relations’ which came out via Thrill Jockey Records in March this year – our own Paul Scott-Bates was captivated by the albums originality; read his LTW review.

Thrill Jockey Labelmate Dan Friel will be supporting on all UK dates as well, bringing his unique blend of hyper-kinetic electronic pop to our ears & whose album we also gave a glowing review here.

Brian was recently voted in at number 34 in Spin’s “100 Best Drummers of Alternative Music”.

If this news doesn’t whet your appetite, then just watch this incredible video of Brian playing in his attic and doing what he does best… beating the hell out of his drum-kit (and adding to his broken drumstick collection!)

Phil Newall is 47, from The Wirral - he earns his living not writing about music nor playing music...though sorely wishes he could. He was fortunate enough to see many of the first generation punk bands when they played the U18's matinee shows at Eric's, Liverpool. As an attendee at Eric's he was exposed to punk rock, dub reggae, art rock, and all manner of weirdness; as a customer at Probe Records he was variously served and scowled at by Pete Wylie and Pete Burns - he has written for Record Collector, Whisperin & Hollerin, and Spiral Scratch and wanted to write a book detailing the Liverpool punk scene; however with 'Head-On' Julian Cope beat him to it...and frankly did a much better job.
