The Skinny: Bored of cookie cutter rock music? Clean cut, auto-tune pretty boys getting you down? Allusondrugs are a 5 piece from Castleford, West Yorkshire who are about to reignite your love for scuzzy riffs and mushroom trips. A band of messed up fuzz junkies led by intensely charismatic front man Jason Moules, they formed in the autumn of 2012, with new double A-side single “Fruit”/”MyCat” following on from the success of their sold-out debut single “Plasters”. Stream and share “MyCat” above!

Recorded at their HQ near Leeds, the tracks are bursting with huge psych-tinged grunge riffs, spaced out guitar effects, rhythmic pulsating drums and hypnotic vocals that shred into gut-wrenching wails. Taking the experimental aspects of contemporaries like Turbowolf and The JCQ and blending them with the 90’s sludge of Nirvana, Pearl Jam and Soundgarden, latest offering “MyCat” is a full on, in your face mosh-pit anthem while “Fruit” contrasts thrashing guitars and drums with dreamy vocals and a maniacal outro dripping with Dinosaur Jr vibes.

The double A-side single will be released on Clue Records on November 11th as a limited edition CD run of 100. It will be available at Jumbo Records (Leeds), Crash Records (Leeds) as well as online at Bandcamp and iTunes.
