The fourth single from the forthcoming debut album ‘Monster Hits’ features Randy Tug stepping up to the mic and letting loose with a whole lot of stuff he doesn’t like! The song was originally only 44 seconds long and after road testing it for a few months, the band decided it needed more hang time to give it more impact.
With this in mind they roped in Polly Cooke from Brisbane’s favourite “Nerd Punks” Mitch, Please to sing and collaborate on the extra verses.
“We couldn’t be happier with the result. We were conscious of not wanting an “Old man shouts at clouds” vibe and Polly’s energy and unique vocal performance enhances and completes the song. We are all big fans of Mitch Please and have played with them several times and Polly was our first choice for a collaboration.” – Randy Tug
ABOUT SQUARE TUGS
Square Tugs started as a side project in mid-2020 playing the iconic ‘Group Sex’ album by 80’s hardcore punk pioneers Circle Jerks along with other Circle Jerks favourites and covers from The Ramones, Black Flag, Pennywise, Bad Religion and 7 Seconds. They are all about bringing people together and encouraging fun nights out for the love of punk rock.
The band are dedicated music fans and have been great friends after being part of the Brisbane punk scene since the 80’s. They formed after Davey’s mission to get Paulie back on stage after a 22 year break was finally successful. He and Randy hatched a plan and convinced Paulie a Circle Jerks cover band was a great idea.
The trio quickly gained a reputation as a fun live band with a solid following playing regularly in and around Brisbane. The band is currently in the studio working on their Debut Album, due for release later in the year.
The Square Tugs are Davey Boy Tug on guitar and vocals (Bad Ronald, Ringpull, Strange Stains, Roughriders), Randy Tug on drums (General Waste), and Paulie Tug on bass and vocals (Crucified Truth, The Warthogs).
