Creation Records supremo Alan McGee states that The Gulps are "the best band I've signed since Oasis", a lofty claim that is backed-up by the London quintet's upcoming debut single, 'Stuck In The City'.
Based in Camden, The Gulps have a confirmed fan in Noel Gallagher and this debut single was created with legendary producer Youth Martin (The Verve, Beth Orton, James). The finished sound is a vibrant punk-rock track that is 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."
Initially discovered by the legendary Steve Strange before his untimely passing earlier this month, The Gulps were signed by Alan McGee to his It’s Creation Baby label. Since the return of live shows they have played a string of gigs with ASH and have also caught the attention of Steve Lamacq who has been championing the band on BBC 6 Music recently.
The Gulps spent the past eighteen months writing and rehearsing in "The King's House" (the moniker given to their Camden apartment). Early recordings have impressed Noel Gallagher and it is is said to expect songs about love and darkness, technology and Warhol. A debut album also produced by Youth Martin is on the way. Believe the hype.
