Much like their fellow countrymen and labelmates Eddy Current Suppression ring, UV Race take a cue from 70's punk and create raw garage full of haphazard guitars, throbbing rhythm and caustic emotion. Straying a bit from the guitar-heavy palette, the band adds a kick of keyboard and some male/female vocal interplay to the mix but still seem to drink from that well-spring of acerbic rock that followed in the wake of Television and The Voidoids. Taught, tense and stretched to break at any second, there's definitely something going on down under and its damn well about time that the U.S. stood up to take notice. The original pressing of this one is already scarce to non-existent but a new pressing is on the way and will be available in the states via Goner (still some of the fist press available here) and Florida's Dying. Keep an eye on the shelves for it and by all means pick it up if you see it.
