(excerpt)

“FUPU is not entertainment. This is no gig. This is no act. This is about real people who are experiencing oppression, putting that to music,” says guitarist and singer Uhuru Moor of afropunk group Fuck U Pay Us. “If you can’t be aware of the situation with the four members of this band, then you’ll never be aware of black Americans, or black people internationally.”

On June 28, just 13 days after our chat in which the group excitedly imagined their first tour (and trip abroad) in the UK, FUPU were attacked in London. Their drummer, Tianna Nicole, was beaten in the streets by an intoxicated male – a white supremacist – after he and his girlfriend sexually harassed and attempted to rob the band in a London kebab shop. Nicole’s nose had been broken, and the band were forced to cancel the tour while she underwent surgery.
