PUKK is the madness and frustration of Singer / Songwriter Joe Chalmers with drummer Mark Beamson and long term collaborator, producer Gavin Monaghan. Originally called Pissed Up Karaoke or P.U.K for short, the name changed as a Finnish metal band already used the name Puk. An extra K was added and what began as a laugh gathered momentum and national radio from Steve Lamacq and Tom Robinson’s BBC6 radio show. Self-released on Tidy Karma Recordings, most of the costs are kept down by a DIY punk ethic. Cover art, promotion, video clips and admin are done in house. If you can’t afford to pay someone to do it for you, do it yourself. It’s been a learning curve. So far they have released the album FECKLESS, an EP and a handful of singles. Their second album SEVEN FOR A SECRET is out New Year’s Day 2020. It’s a concept album with each track adding to the story of two murders in a small town. It was never going to be straight forward. Thankfully.
