wutip 1218

Based in East London, Wutip are a DIY indie-garage-punk four piece blending scrappy guitars, raucous choruses, punchy lyrics and political sentiment.

Formed a year ago by former folk duo Tom Fisher and Dominic Mill, Australian expat Liam Dunn and guy they drink with David Lewins, the band released their three track demo “Rough Cut” last November to rave reviews and have become a room-packing feature of the London scene.

They’ve played headline sets at The Montague Arms, The Lock Tavern, The Camden Assembly and a sold out show at the DIY Space For London. In January, the band curated and headlined the first Tip Tease: A night of inclusive punk and indie which has now been commissioned as a regular, bi-monthly event at the Bermondsey Social Club. The band have performed alongside acts including Gurr, The Tuts, The Spook School, Nova Twins and Crywank and at fundraisers for Lesbians and Gays Support the Migrants, Abortion Support Network, the UK’s striking McDonald’s workers and the University of London’s striking custodians...

In May, Wutip released their debut double A-side, Wave // Bless This Mess at a sold out show at The Lock Tavern.
