The Gulps, the freshest signing to Alan McGee’s It’s Creation Baby, are set to release their debut single, Stuck In The City, on the 29th October. Charged with an electrostatic frisson and fired with an incisive sense of urgency, The Gulps deliver an opening gambit that commands your attention. A visceral punk/rock track for our times, Stuck In The City is a song about the slow death of a society which crumbles before our very eyes. Railing against the powers-that-be while swinging at the docile public sleepwalking into its demise; through five-minutes of sound and fury The Gulps action a wake-up call like an atomic bomb, designed to shake society from its slumber.

“These days we’re living I feel society is falling on a deep clean sweep without getting us in torture labs. Our today’s torture labs are advertisement, consuming, social media… Becoming a sleepy society, advocated to consume drugs, to get likes, to buy online, everyday we see how mental health becomes a bigger issue in our daily lives. Society is controlled and directed through consuming messages. The idea of your life and the continuous bombarding with advertisement, that sells you empty stimulus of happiness. That’s how we create our own shock or tramp these days. When that disappears the loneliness comes and we become a vulnerable clean sweep society. That’s Stuck in the City, it shows how a person feels in such an aggressive economic and inequality system.” (frontman and songwriter Harry All)

With the UK going down the shitter at an accelerating pace, it’s just as well The Gulps are going places fast. Identified by the legendary Steve Strange (Visage) as his latest and last discovery before his untimely passing, the band were then signed by Creation Records legend Alan McGee and signed to his It’s Creation Baby label. Owning a shared philosophy that “music is everything”, The Gulps are a band who are unafraid of a grand statement or to speak their minds. With a defiant sense of belief in their creations and cause, from their limited shows and releases so far the band have earned a reputation for making insurgent alt/rock masterclasses that rage against the injustices of our corrupt and ailing society, while flying the flag for a new era of rock ’n roll.
