The first time we saw PUP, the sound guy kept telling them to turn down and, every time he did, they would smile and nod and say “ok” and then proceed to turn up a little more. And that describes their adventure as a band so far; quitting their jobs, sleeping on floors, eating soup from a can, shitty tours, awesome tours, sleeping in basements and answering to no one but each other. And that’s why Pup is one of those rare bands that make you want to believe in something. You might not even know what that something is, but when you see them on stage screaming their heads off, covered in sweat and spit, and having the time of their lives, you know that that something is right.
