Puggy, the new formidable band hailing from Brussels, Sweden and the UK are about to make an almighty wave on the UKâ€™s indie shores.
Having already garnered an army of dedicated fans and MTV plays across Europe, Puggy have now fully outgrown their domestic musical surroundings and are set to kick-in the ears of indie kids and grown-ups alike in the UK.
Currently on tour supporting US mega-group Incubus on their 15-date European tour (at Incubusâ€™ personal request) the band popped their festival cherries in summer 2005 with performances at Reading and Leeds festivals, and a year later performed a show-stopping set at the BenicÃ ssim festival, Spain.
Prior to this they have played shows at nearly every sweaty underground London live venue, where they caught the attention and became a personal favorite of legendary live music promoter Vince Power. Vince then booked them to play gigs at prestigious venues such as the Jazz CafÃ© and Borderline, and also invited them to play Benicassim.
In early 2006, the band played a private showcase for legendary multi Grammy award-winning proÂ¬ducer, Steve Lillywhite (The Rolling Stones, Morrissey, U2, The Pogues). Steve was so impressed with the band that he encouraged them to record their soon-to-be indie anthem â€œThe Luckiest Crime.â€
With 14 tracks of remarkably catchy tunes, expect imminent radio airplay from this revelatory new band. Their premier musical offering is a melting pot of contemporary rock & acoustic pop adorned by astonishing melodies and lyrics filled with morbid irony. Tales of death, brothels & crime entwined into compositions that are simple, yet innovative, create a unique ambience and a level of musical maturity rarely attained on an introductory album.
â€œSimple Dreamsâ€ and â€œOut of Handâ€, two songs from â€œDubois Died Todayâ€ have already achieved national playlist on Belgiumâ€™s MINT, Radio 1 and FM stations. The music video for â€œOut of Handâ€ is also being broadcast across all music channels.
