Pup’s Clever ‘Morbid Stuff’ Video Is Made Up Of Lo-Fi Concert Footage Filmed By 19 Fans

Last year, Pup released Morbid Stuff, which Uproxx’s Steven Hyden argued was 2019’s “catchiest, darkest, and overall best punk album.” He’s not the only one who digs the group, and as a result, they spent a lot of the year touring. Now they have captured what a Pup show looks like in a new video for their album’s title track.

Instead of making a more traditional concert video, though, Pup sought the help of 19 of their fans. The footage comes from a pair of London shows at the Electric Ballroom, and before those gigs, Pup met up with the fans and gave them cheap handheld cameras with which to film the gigs. The resulting video isn’t the most technically impressive clip out there (and that’s the point), but the DIY aesthetic is a perfect match for Pup’s brand of punk.
