August’s Pizza of the Month: ‘The Only Way is XUP’

Good evening Ladies and Gentlemen. My name is Leonard Skully and it is that time again for me to make a very special announcement. August’s Pizza of the Month is ‘The Only Way Is XUP’ and was chosen by Lane from XUP. It has tomato sauce, black olives, mushrooms, vegan chicken, chilli flakes and cow’s milk cheese or vegan cheese, on a very special pink base (coloured with beetroot juice). Yours for only £7 and photographed here on The Golden Pizza Paddle. Lane from XUP has a thing for pink and black and in designing this pizza with us, she wanted it to reflect that aesthetic! 

You should know that XUP is Lane on the Mustang bass, drums, and vocals. She has happily declared “Yep, It’s all Lane, baby. And it’s pronounced Zoop”. Lane is currently in the studio working on a brand new album, but in the meantime, she is releasing a compilation album comprising of her favourite, less well-known songs, taken from her extensive six-album discography. The aptly titled PLANET XUP drops on the 23rd of August and will be available on digital download, streaming platforms and in limited edition cassette format.

It has been said that XUP is the bastard child of Courtney Love and Nick Cave, and that XUP sounds like Siouxsie Sioux and Joy Division, making an arthouse B-movie starring Sonic Youth and Patti Smith. But Lane just thinks XUP sounds like XUP. And you can make your own mind up by coming to the next XUP show on the 7th of October at The Peer Hat, for Abattoir Blues Records. On her downtime from XUP, Lane can often be found working on new projects for the Rat Alley TV YouTube channel, so keep an eye out for those also.
