Square Tugs Unzip themselves!

Brisbane punks are in good ‘shape’ (get it?) after releasing debut EPVodka, Lime and Soda

  • The location: Brisbane, Queensland, Australia
  • The sound: Street punk
  • The line-up: Davey (Guitar, Vocals), Paulie (Bass, Vocals), Randy (Drums)
  • The comparison: Circle Jerks, The Ramones
  • Punktuation pick: Live Fast, Die Numb

The Square Tugs started as a side project in mid-2020, playing the iconic ‘Group Sex’ album by 80’s hardcore punk pioneers Circle Jerks and covers from The Ramones, Black Flag, Pennywise, Bad Religion and 7 seconds. They are all about bringing people together and encouraging fun nights out for the love of punk rock. The band are dedicated music fans and have been great friends after being part of the Brisbane punk scene since the ’80s.


Square Tugs formed after lead singer Davey’s mission to get his mate Paulie back on stage after a 22-year break was finally successful. He and drummer Randy hatched a plan and convinced Paulie a Circle Jerks cover band was a great idea. The trio quickly gained a reputation as a fun live band with a solid following, and after playing over thirty shows in their first year, they have now released their debut four-track EP of original songs entitled ‘Vodka, Lime and Soda’.

The Square Tugs are Davey Boy Tug on guitar and vocals (Bad Ronald, Ringpull, Strange Stains, Roughriders), Randy Tug on drums (General Waste), and Paulie Tug on bass and vocals (Crucified Truth & The Warthogs). 

Their debut EP ‘Vodka, Lime and Soda‘ is out now and contains four tracks of classic 80’s-style punk. It has already been streamed over 1000 times in two months on Spotify.

The EP is available on all streaming services as a digital download and CD via https://square-tugs.square.site/ and Bandcamp.
