Based in East London, Wutip are a DIY indie-dance-punk four piece blending scrappy guitars, raucous choruses, punchy lyrics and political sentiment. Formed in late 2017 by former folk duo Tom Fisher and Dominic Mill, Australian expat Liam Dunn and guy they drink with David Lewins, the band released their three track demo “Rough Cut” in November 2017 to rave reviews and have become a room-packing feature of the London scene.
They’ve played headline sets at The Montague Arms, The Lock Tavern, The Camden Assembly and a sold out show at the DIY Space For London. In January, the band curated and headlined the first Tip Tease: A night of inclusive punk, post-punk and indie which has now been commissioned as a regular, bi-monthly event at the Bermondsey Social Club. The band have performed alongside acts including Gurr, The Tuts, The Spook School, Nova Twins and Crywank and at fundraisers for Lesbians and Gays Support the Migrants, Abortion Support Network, the UK’s striking McDonald’s workers and the University of London’s striking custodians. In May of last year, Wutip released their debut double A-side, Wave // Bless This Mess at a sold out show at The Lock Tavern.
In January of 2019 they released a re-recorded, remastered version of their 2017 demo 'Scott Walker' - the first song of an ongoing partnership with producer Margo Broom (The Fat White Family, Catholic Action, Yassassin, Meatraffle, Big Joanie, Phobophobes, Calva Louise).

I was there in 1968.
I was there at the first Can show in Cologne.
I'm losing my edge.
I'm losing my edge to the kids whose footsteps I hear when they get on the decks.
I'm losing my edge to the Internet seekers who can tell me every member of every good group from 1962 to 1978.
I'm losing my edge.

To all the kids in Tokyo and Berlin.
I'm losing my edge to the art-school Brooklynites in little jackets and borrowed nostalgia for the unremembered eighties.

But I'm losing my edge.
I'm losing my edge, but I was there.
I was there.
But I was there.

I'm losing my edge.
I'm losing my edge.
I can hear the footsteps every night on the decks.
But I was there.
I was there in 1974 at the first Suicide practices in a loft in New York City.
I was working on the organ sounds with much patience.
I was there when Captain Beefheart started up his first band.
I told him, "Don't do it that way. You'll never make a dime."
I was there.
I was the first guy playing Daft Punk to the rock kids.
I played it at CBGB's.
Everybody thought I was crazy.
We all know.
I was there.
I was there.
I've never been wrong.

I used to work in the record store.
I had everything before anyone.
I was there in the Paradise Garage DJ booth with Larry Levan.
I was there in Jamaica during the great sound clashes.
I woke up naked on the beach in Ibiza in 1988.

But I'm losing my edge to better-looking people with better ideas and more talent.
And they're actually really, really nice.

Our Father
Who art in Hendon
Harrow Road be Thy name
Thy Kingston come
Thy Wimbledon
In Erith as it is in Hendon
Give us this day our Berkhampstead
And forgive us our Westminsters
As we forgive those who Westminster against us
Lead us not into Temple Station
And deliver us from Ealing
For thine is the Kingston
The Purley and the Crawley
For Iver and Iver
Crouch End
