Messer Chups + Rex Speedway & Thee Fortune Tellers

We have wanted to put these guys on for years, they are the quintessential Stay Sick band... all the way from Russia and Germany ...

+ support


In their music Messer Chups combine surf, beats, film samples, scratchy historical recordings, loungey and cartoon sounds from the 50′s and 60′s.The show is combined with video from trash cult movies of the middle of the last century – Betty Page, Bela Lugosi , zombies, Russ Meyer’s and Ed Wood’s heroes all mixed in videocollages of the master Gitarkin. Messer Chups is the project of Russian composer Oleg Gitarkin, and while the band’s instrumental rock is hard to neatly categorize, it’s safe to say that it would be enjoyed by fans of rockabilly, horror punk, scratchy surf records, Italian slasher films, My Life With the Thrill Kill Kult, pulp fiction, lounge music, Ed Wood, the theremin, the Cramps, Russ Meyer movies and the theme song from “The Addams Family.” Gitarkin incorporates all of these elements and more, layering samples from Russian B-movies over weird vintage keyboard chirps and groovy horn loops.
