“Messer Chups hails from Saint Petersburg, Russia, which has a reputation as the home of Russian rockabilly. They have been on the scene for about 20 years bringing their interpretation of surf rock combined with imagery of horror and sci-fi to fans all over the world.
Chups is known for their heavy surf rock sound and live performances incorporating visual art projecting old horror and sci-fi movies. Fomchenkov shreds his fretboard showing no mercy and adding his perfected horror movie villain laugh. Nagaeva plays her bass with hypnotizing bass lines and a pouty expression that brings to life the term man-eater. Her vocals carry that squeaky rockabilly sweetness slathered in her Russian accent and the occasional scream bordering between cute and ghoulish. “Rockin Eugene” holds it down on drums adding menacing howls throughout tracks.”
