PUP, which is an abbreviation for Pathetic Use of Potential, is a renowned Canadian Punk Band that has been nominated and/or won major Canadian competitions like the Juno Awards, the Polaris Music Prize, and the CBC Bucky Awards. Their first single “Reservoir” was even nominated for a SOCAN Song-writing Prize, and they’ve continued to perfect and refine their sound since then.
Following the release of 2016’s The Dream Is Over, PUP achieved major commercial success with a variety of recognition from Billboard, the Polaris Music Prize, and the Rolling Stone. Luckily, we got to sit down with PUP guitarist Steve Sladkowski to talk about honing their sound, gear, and the importance of being able to play clean before adding in effects.
