“This song is about someone who lashes out at other people because they are scared of being themselves or being exposed in some way,” explained the band’s Eilidh McMillan.
From Glasgow’s fertile DIY punk scene come Breakfast Muff, a thrillingly uncompromising pop trio who will be releasing their new album ‘Eurgh!’ on Amour Foo Records on July 7th.
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.
Since forming in 2014, the band have shown a determined focus, playing as many gigs as possible and putting out two records. Their first album, The Feels, was made in two days. Their second, Rainbow Yawn, was made in three, and 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.
