Following the release of their critically acclaimed new album Eurgh!, Glasgow's Breakfast Muff announce a London show at Rough Trade East this Friday 21 July at 7pm, before heading off on a string of dates with Neurotic Fiction next week.  
 
Breakfast Muff are a thrillingly uncompromising DIY pop trio comprising Eilidh McMillan (Rapid Tan, Joanna Gruesome), Simone Wilson (Hairband, Mary Column) and Cal Donnelly (Spinning Coin, Rapid Tan), who all switch between guitar, bass and drums in a cacophony of anxiety, celebration and creativity. Featuring songs about sexuality, feminism and feelings, Eurgh! ranges from soft to screechy, and is an all-round giant dose of fun.
 
They also share the track "I Like To", which Eilidh describes; "This song is kind of silly but it’s also it came from a place of like everyone wanting to know your sexuality and wanting to put you in a box. As a bi/pansexual person I’ve experienced this from both women and men that I’ve slept with. The point of the song is just that it shouldn’t matter to anyone but yourself."

New single 'R U A Feminist'


Announce forthcoming album Eurgh!
Due 7 July via Amour Foo
.

 

From Glasgow’s fertile DIY punk scene come Breakfast Muff, a thrillingly uncompromising pop trio who are set to release their new album Eurgh! on 7 July via Amour Foo Records. Featuring songs about sexuality, feminism and feelings, Eurgh! ranges from soft to screechy, and is an all-round giant dose of fun. Bandmates Eilidh McMillan (Rapid Tan, Joanna Gruesome), Simone Wilson (Hairband, Mary Column) and Cal Donnelly (Spinning Coin, Rapid Tan) switch between guitar, bass and drums in a cacophony of anxiety, celebration and creativity.
 
New track 'R U A Feminist' aims to call out those who use feminism to mask their violence, exclusion or oppression towards others (e.g – white feminism, trans exclusion, shady guys in the scene). DIY chose 'R U A Feminist' as their Neu Pick, writing: "Following the band’s equally vicious, angry recent single ‘Babyboomers’, ‘R U A Feminist’ is just as intense, with every word spat from vocalist Eilidh McMillan’s mouth feeling like a battle cry."
 
The album title Eurgh! perfectly encapsulates Breakfast Muff’s sound. It’s an expression that can be both an exclamation of disgust or a cry of passion, and in this album it’s certainly both. This is echoed by the striking line-drawn illustrations on the cover, by Kate Gallagher. Kate has collaborated on the artwork for several of the band's releases, and is uniquely able to provide a visual expression of the band's sound.

New video for "Babyboomers"

New 7" single Babyboomers/R U A Feminist out now via Amour Foo

 

From Glasgow’s fertile DIY punk scene come Breakfast Muff, a thrillingly uncompromising pop trio who will be releasing a double a-side single Babyboomers/R U A Feminist on Amour Foo Records. The songs are about sexuality, feminism and feelings and are an all-round giant dose of fun. Bandmates Eilidh McMillan (Rapid Tan, Joanna Gruesome), Simone Wilson (Hairband, Mary Column) and Cal Donnelly (Spinning Coin, Rapid Tan) switch between guitar, bass and drums in a cacophony of anxiety, celebration and creativity.
 
They revealed a video for "Babyboomers" via Gold Flake Paint, who described it as: "A mightily inspired piece of work, the skewed, scatter-gun representation of the images making for a thoroughly compelling counterpart to the track’s own somewhat feral unravelling. Raucous but refined, the whole thing is a thoroughly rewarding couple of minutes, and you can watch and listen to your heart’s content right now."
 

 

 

The video was directed by Alexis Mackenzie who explained further: "This is my 2nd animation ever ever ever. I'm self-taught. Each frame was done by hand in photoshop and I created nearly 4000 individual images for it, to get the static-y and rolling background / sliding images effects. I took the photos of the band at my studio in Whiteinch. also took the pics of the globe, deflated balloon, tambourine, and fortune cat which the band brought for me to include in video, they brought the grey wig they're wearing as well."
 
Since forming in 2014, Breakfast Muff have shown a determined focus, playing as many gigs as possible and putting out records. Their first album, The Feels, was made in two days. Their second, Rainbow Yawn, was made in three, and they’ve just finished recording their third LP Eurgh! in four. This time, the album was recorded at The Big Shed Community Centre in the Highlands in May 2016, with gloriously hot weather contributing to the exuberant sound. The vocals were laid down together in the main hall, with the lead singer standing close to the microphone while the others were at a distance, lending a truly live and in-the-moment feel to the recordings.

The new material demonstrates Breakfast Muff’s development as a band, as they begin to become a real force to be reckoned with. Having made a concerted effort to hone their sound and improve as musicians over the past few years, Breakfast Muff now have a renewed confidence. Their live shows are renowned for being some of the most energetic and exciting around, with a ferocious and at times aggressive energy, veering between defiant anger and joyous celebration.
