ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Toupe are special in the way that kid who you never spoke to across the classroom was special...except without the stains.

Everything they come out with sounds totally different from any other band you could care to compare them to and infact totally different from what you've heard them do before.

They are impossible to pin down as they create totally new sounds and ideas; subject matter of their songs ranging from ninjas to a submariner, from a school science fair to fuckin'. Yet all of their music has one thing in common - it is serious and thought provoking but delivered in a childish, tongue in cheek way.

What other band could observe the state of religion in quite the way they do with Big Man Said To Man or release a 78 minute CD comparing the music industry to fast food?

Toupe are definitely a band you just have to hear and it isn't only the albums that are outstanding either; the band put on an energy packed, fun filled, completely crazy stage act and present a weird and powerful stage presence. Make sure to check out their website, see them live and start buying the records now (they've made 2 so far and have plans for another 24, one for each letter of the alphabet)

2006 saw the band do a brief tour of the North East USA in FEB - this tour promted the band to manufacture the CD 'A Mixture and a Solution' to help introduce new American fans to the bands recorded catalogue. In the UK the band have release two albums ('Alopecia' and 'Burgers' on Hackpen Records) that have sold well and gained the band top slots at the music festivals there. There are plans to record another 24 albums - one for each letter of the alphabet.

SOME THINGS SOME PEOPLE WHO WORK FOR THE MUSIC PRESS SAY:
"..musically on form with dark catchy melodies and funky bass solos. Best Track - Three Days In The Pit." KERRANG!

"There's certainly no formula here, slipping from some laidback jazzy moments to headfuck with ease, and sounding pretty damn cool." Rock Sound

"you know what we're most reminded of by this album? The first endeavour from Mike Patton's mercurial Mr Bungle. Yowzah! Twangy, troublesome and triumphant, Toupe have weaved a thing of wonder." Iain Moffat - Playlouder

"(Toupe) are the musical equivalent of Tim Burton, telling stories of dark and eerie characters in strange situations with a moral tale behind it all, I can't wait to see what they dream up next." BBC On-Line
