Blackup and Brat Farrar team up touring Europe


The Australian Brat Farrar and the Belgian Blackup will join forces at the end of the month and will tour all over Europe together. 

For the uninitiated, in a previous life Brat Farrar fronted Melbourne based Digger and The Pussycats, known for their globe trotting abilities and helping to define what most folks now call garage-punk. On recordings Brat Farrar takes on the main tasks of cook, cleaner and maid but live is joined by a variety of crackpot musicians. Together they produce a wonderous blend of new wave, synth punk, shoegaze and something very Australian rock.

In case you haven’t heard, the Brat Farrar sound is reminiscent of early Wipers, Chrome, The Spits and Suicide

Blackup released their first album Ease & Delight and at the time they played shitloads. Opened for bands like Hot Snakes, Metz, toured with Rocket From The Crypt, did gigs with Dinosaur Jr, Peter Pan Speedrock amongst many others. Now the band is back with with new songs, gigs and a new album
