P*U*S were an English punk rock band formed in Wisbech/Elm in Cambridgeshire in 1988. According to the band, the name P*U*S (or P.U.S.) "was passed down to us in 1990 from a dodgy Australian geezer whose barn we used to rehearse in". The acronym stood for many things, such as "Punks' Underpants Smell". "Punks/People United against Society" and "Pissed, Ugly and Shite".

The core of the lineup - Darren and Nik, had been performing in various guises (including "Disillusioned State") since 1986, with demo tapes existing since that year. The P*U*S lineup was completed when Duds & Sonny joined after meeting Darren and Nik at a UK Subs gig in King's Lynn.

P*U*S split in 1999. A new band (name unknown) began to take up where P*U*S left off (some jam tapes exist with Darren, Gary, Luke (drums) and Duds) until Gary was killed in a car accident in November 1999.
