About / Over


Surprisingly flawless punk rock band from Groningen, The Netherlands. Formed in the zeroes, de fuckups are best known for a swingingly soulful rhythm section (think: roses, tooth brushes, lava lamps) getting pounded heavily by tough, militaristic guitar riffs (try to block: german 40’s cinema) and a raspy vocal chord acrobat (imagine: tar dripping exhaustion pipe) who together deliver the information right to your cochleas. In a loud way, too.

Verrassend foutloze punkrockgroep uit Groningen, Nederland. Gevormd in de nullen, zijn de fuckups het best bekend voor een swingende, bezielde ritmesectie (denk: rozen, tandenborstels, lavalampen), die hard te grazen wordt genomen door stevige, militaristische gitaarloopjes (probeer te blokken: duitse jaren ’40 bioscoop) en een rasperige stembandenacrobaat (stel voor: teer druppelende uitlaat) die samen de informatie tot aan uw slakkenhuizen brengen. Op een luide manier, ook nog.

    Hallo jongeluien,

    na een bezoek aan “dEF cuKPs by mien spees” en na het beluisteren van die professioneel uitgevoerde songs, moet ik jullie vertellen dat ik nu ook een vriend ben. Dat zijn dus al 601 vrienden in totaal!

    Groet, Mr. Mirrorhall.

  3. Hi Sil,

    This is one way, another would be sending an e-mail to defuckups@platexrecords.com
    We don’t have any dates in France yet, but we’re planning on getting a tour together in the next few months. We most certainly would love to come over.

  4. I’m writing a blog on your Stuff. Just answer a few questions, please.
    Does the band still exist?
    Will there be a third album?

  5. Yes it does, and there will be a new record in a couple months, Richard.
