STAGGS – The oddball Leeds pop / punk manglers have just released two new EPsLeeds based punsters STAGGS, who can name The Shend as one of their fans, have just released not one but two EPs, both via Bandcamp and both on a “free” or “pay what you like” basis. 

The remix EP: Smart Husband Resonator Set, was released three weeks ago while the new EP proper, Risque, But Not Blue, was released just last week. Both can be found at STAGGS Bandcamp ( or on the links below.

“STAGGS were born out of a one-off experimental remix of their own anarcho-punk track from the early 80s. The production is wholly contemporary but the anger of that era lives on in their energy, lyrical content and vocal expression. With a healthy cynicism towards British culture contained in the wealth of nostalgic samples and a bizarre smattering of French language thrown in for good measure, STAGGS give a sly “clin d’oeil” to 1970 / 80s Britain.”

In the words of The Shend:

“Like Heaven 17 after too many funny mushrooms, astonishing”.
