Slurs are a DIY slacker-punk band from Newcastle upon Tyne, comprised of guitarist and vocalist Mark Simpson, guitarist and vocalist Fintan Dawson, bassist Kev Rajiah and drummer Mike Smith.
On their kitchen-recorded tape release Badmouth, Slurs built on their first self-produced EP, Northern Electric by crafting a sound that borrows from influences encompassing post-punk, doom and slacker-rock. The bespoke The Kids Hate You released tape received glowing reviews from God is in the TV Zine, Narc Magazine, NE:MM and NE Volume Magazine, along with airplay from BBC Newcastle, Spark FM and a featured live performance on NE1.fm.
Slurs' third release through cult Wakefield label Philophobia in October 2018, 'Sic Itur Ad Astra', helped spread the band's audience and received airplay further afield, leading to BBC Radio 6's Steve Lamacq describing their sound as "very fine slack rock".
