Hello friends and fans!
It’s no secret by now that many tours and other social events are being cancelled during this period of the Coronavirus. Unfortunately, we now also have to postpone our planned April/May European tour. During this difficult time, we wish all of you to stay safe, take care of each other, follow the proper instructions, please don’t panic, and believe in better days which are coming. We are grateful to all the heroic medics who are on the front lines of this fight. We will try to reschedule these shows for later this year. We will keep you all informed.
Stay home, be safe, and we’re looking forward to seeing you again as soon as possible!

While Messer Chups‘ mostly instrumental sound is hard to neatly categorize, it’s safe to say that it would be embraced by fans of rockabilly, horror punk, vintage surf records, Italian slasher films, My Life with the Thrill Kill Kult, Pulp Fiction, lounge music, the theremin, The Cramps, and the theme song from The Munsters. Their catchy music combines surf, vintage Russian melodies, rare film samples from the 50s and 60s, scratchy historical recordings, and lounge loops. Live, they explode with garage-punk intensity, all played against a video-collage backdrop of mid-century trashy cult and horror movie clips featuring Russ Meyer and Ed Wood, and superstars like Vampira and Bela Lugosi in a zombie mash-up.
