Brisbane’s SQUARE TUGS have released their first new material for 2022. Fat, Drunk, Stupid clocks in at just 1 minute and this first single from the debut album gets straight to the point. Featuring Paulie Tug on vocals, the song isn’t meant to be particularly offensive, it is more an observational song and not about a particular person.

“Let’s face it, we’ve all known this person at some stage of our lives. We wanted to do a short fast punk blast of a song, the sort of thing that was coming out of the early 80s hardcore scene in America. We were definitely inspired by the Angry Samoans & Bad Brains for this one”.Paulie Tug

Fat, Drunk, Stupid has been in the live set for the past few months and is already a crowd favourite. The band are currently in the studio working on their debut album, due for release later in the year. Recording with Jason Milhouse at Recordworks Studio in Brisbane, work is well underway on the sixteen tracks earmarked for the album.


Square Tugs started as a side project in mid-2020 playing the iconic ‘Group Sex’ album by 80’s hardcore punk pioneers Circle Jerks along with other Circle Jerks favourites 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 80’s. They formed after Davey’s mission to get Paulie back on stage after a 22 year break was finally successful. He and 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 playing regularly in and around Brisbane. The band is currently in the studio working on their Debut Album, due for release later in the year.

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).
