It’s Rude To Stare interview the lads and get an image of what they are staring at!!!
You played in London, Moscow and Paris to name a few, but if you could chose anywhere on earth, where would you play?
HAWAII PLEASE, London has been so cold & rainy lately. We’re desperate for some SUN !!
You’ve been collaborating with Kitsuné a lot : compilations, EPs, lives, what’s your best memory with the Kitsuné family? And best stage memory ever?
There are quite a few! Fun times with Gildas & Moonlight Matters in Jakarta & SIngapore & also playing Kitsune tent at Dour Festival in Belgium in front of 6000 peeps was NICE. We had a few Spinal Tap moments that time too. Haha
Could you tell us your three favorite places to hang out in London ?
Dalston & Hackney for late night shenanigans, west end for strong & hot espressos & East Finchley for Allan’s Records.
What’s next for Punk Jumps Up? Any shows upcoming?
We’re currently finishing off new material, more singles & EP’s coming very soon with start in late June..! We’ll be playing ALL OVER THE PLACE (which includes
