Dragged Up bring their off-kilter, psych-garage, proto-punk sounds from Glasgow on their first national tour. Support from local heroes The Courtesy Group and the mysterious Ray Vorg. On DJ duties Fliss Kitson (Nightingales).
Dragged Up are an off-kilter psych-garage proto-punk band from Glasgow, formed in late 2018 with members from Trembling Bells, Vom, The Cosmic Dead and Las Mitras. Their 2020 debut mini-album, ‘D/U’ received positive reviews from the likes of Louder Than War: “like classic CBGBs proto-punk transplanted to rain-drenched Scottish streets” and Record Collector Magazine: “an all-seeing, culture-cannibalizing slacker classic.” It reached no.15 in Reverb is for Lovers’ Best Albums 2020, was chosen as Postcards from the Underground Best EPs 2020, and Album of the Week in Kool Strings. They have supported acts such as Large Plants, Acid Mothers Temple, White Hills, No Age and Girls in Synthesis. Cruel Nature Records are releasing their new EP ‘Hex Domestic’ in early September. The band will be playing some Scottish and English shows to promote it, including supporting The Bevis Frond in Glasgow.
