Desmond And The Tutus have been scare-crowing across the world s stages with their unique some might call it niche, brand of kwela-indie-punk for just on ten years. he Tutus are more shape-shifters than niche, their sound slotting comfortably between Thandiswe Mazwai and Hugh Masekela, as it did at the Soweto Heritage Fest in 2013, or between surf rocker s Beach Party and synth mavens Gateway Drugs during the Puma Happy Holiday in summer 13/14. The Tutus have also toured extensively internationally, opening on their 2009 UK tour for The Vivian Girls, The Soft Pack and Women. They played at one of the last and legendary Optimo parties at The Sub Club in Glasgow and somehow managed to sell out their first European headliner at Vanner och Bekanta in Stockholm. They ve also played among Johnny Clegg, The Mahotella Queens, and Blk Jks at the South African themed Rio Loco in Toulouse, France in 2010. Desmond & The Tutus have sold out shows all over the globe, including Japan, France, Sweden and the UK.
Forming in 2005, it took until 2008 for Shane, Nick, Craig and Doug to get their act together and release their debut album Tuckshop. Around this time they also had two releases on Japanese labels, Flake Records and Every Conversation. In 2012 the band worked with Los Angeles based producer, Eric Broucek, and their 2nd full length album entitled MNUSIC was released in July of 2012. The first three singles from the album all charted on the 5FM Top 40. Most notably, the 2nd single Zim Zala Bim reached No. 1 on the 5FM Top 40. The band have recently enjoyed Top 5 status once again on 5FM s Top 40 with their hit singles Pretoria Girls and Teenagers taken off their forthcoming release Enjoy Yourself.
