Messer Chups is an experimental band from St.Petersburg, Russia. The band was founded by Oleg Gitarkin who had previously performed with Oleg Kostrow under the name of Messer für Frau Müller. Messer Chups is often considered a "spin-off" band of Messer für Frau Müller. The band was originally a duo of Gitarkin on bass guitar and Annette Schneider who played the synths.

In 2003 they invited the world famous theremin player Lydia Kavina to join them. Together they have released several albums and reworked their previous releases. Since 2005 Messer Chups is duo of Gitarkin and ZombieGirl on bass and in 2007 they became trio with drummer Denis "Kashey" Kuptzov from famous Leningrad band.

Messer Chups' music often features a fundament of surf drums on which they build collages of samples from odd sources, like circus music, jazz, east European animation soundtracks, and American B-pictures. On top of that they lay solos from guitar and theremin. The overall effect is one of loving parody and good fun. -Wikipedia 3/23/2009

Hi, I just used your song, Devil Exit from Fashion, in a promotional video for my library: https://youtu.be/F7sPqHY1lmg It's the second part covering a photoshoot behind-the-scenes video. I thought you might like to know that someone on Youtube claimed your song as their copyrighted material. The company is InGrooves, and the artist is Aron Lyrd (claims it's his song Outfield Dreamer). I disputed the claim, but they upheld it. Anyway, I was hoping to avoid an ad on our video since we're a nonprofit government agency, but since youtube is going to give us an ad anyway, I think you guys should get the money, not this Aron guy.

Your song is wonderful by the way, exactly the mood I was hoping for. :-)
