Bull “Eugene” psychedelic angst

“Eugene” sounds like something off Sgt. Peppers with an angsty Pavement esque twist at the halfway mark and a music video produced by the Flaming Lips.  Someone who really understands a broad array of rock music will be able to appreciate the depth of the lush arrangement.  “Eugene” is for people with all depths between art and entertainment or shallow and deep.


This New York based slacker rock outfit have been gaining some strong momentum that has seen them played on Radio 6 by Steve Lamacq and recently supporting bands such as the Orielles, Pip Blom and Canshaker Pi.

The four piece play songs in the style of Pavement/Pixies/Pumpkins and anything else amazing that begins with a P. They are often melodic, sometimes frantic, dynamic and always unpredictable.

In the spring of 2017 Tom Beer, Dan Lucas, Kai West and Tom Gabbatiss, decided on a whim, to go to Germany. Their planning was extremely minimal. They built a suitcase drum kit packed up their shit and took off on their first trip abroad together. They slept in the basement of a YMCA and went about the business of successfully booking a two night dive bar tour of Berlin.

As fate would have it, the band crossed paths with SPIRAL STAIRS (Pavement). They took a liking to Bull and agreed to play at the band’s impromtu house party the following night. Live sound engineer and producer, Remko Schouten (Pavement, The Jicks) ran the rig at the house party and afterwards invited Bull to record with him in Amsterdam – far out!

This chance meeting allowed Bull to realise the classic childhood dream, playing their way through Europe and all the way to Austin, Texas – South By South West.
