Teen Creeps is an indie rock trio from Ghent with a taste for the alternative rock from the ’90s and punk. Their music is somewhere between melody and aggression, and has been described as “Guided By Voices, but aggressive” and “Fugazi, but in a good mood.”

The end of 2013 the band released its first EP in-house, and in March 2015 was followed by a split 7 “with Mind Rays on Oddie Records.


Woven steadily in the light of the south coast moon, the uniquely voiced solo project-turned-band play elemental, crystalline noise/art rock and clutter-free psychedelic pop stories from forthcoming LP, Umbra. For fans of Television, Polvo.

Songs about self loathing, songs about self loving, songs about old friends, new friends, old love/new love/forever love, frustration, sadness, and that feeling, that everything is beautiful and everything is okay.

“What emerges is a track enormously relevant to our generation, the tide of anger and fear and hope breaking through the barriers which normally keep it below the surface (that is, feelings of loneliness, ineptitude, an intense aversion to appearing naive) to make a song uplifting but never glib, and true without ever really understanding why. ” Wake The Deaf Blog

Teen Creeps, Perch, Porridge Radio & The Cosmic Sadness @ Sticky Mike's 24/03/2016

23/04/2016 By James McLarnon

TCWe’ll eat our hats if Teen Creeps aren’t named after the No Age song of the same name as they traverse the same furiously hard yet ridiculously catchy punk/shoegaze world as the Sub Pop signed American two-piece. Their first EP, released in 2014 vividly recalls Dinosaur Jr. non-urgent but big choruses, mammoth hooks and lead guitar mayhem. Last year’s split with Mind Rays, is a further stage on, with the improved production allowing beautiful sounding guitar to dominate and improved songwriting not allowing a second of tape to be wasted.

Equally noticeable about this gig is the strength of the supporting cast. Perch are formed from the ashes of local faves Fat Bicth, thought it seems that their genesis predates that project. Given Fat Bicth’s recent breakup, it seems Perch will be the foremost collective for Chris Mitchell’s talent for creating inventive, dynamically interesting noise-rock. The two small previews on his recently created indicate that he may have lost some of the intentionally difficult nature of his music for something altogether more inclusive. This may be the birth of something big.

Porridge Radio and The Cosmic Sadness had ex- NME and Melody Maker journo of legend Everett True proclaiming them as’ The Greatest Band in The World’ based on 30 seconds of performance. Think what 30 minutes will be like.
