The UV Race
Ah in the midst of a full on Aussie assault on 2012, one of RSTB's favorites are back with a new album. The UV Race have moved further into the core of late 70's punk and crossed those blunt instincts with a few glam stomps from the same era to mix a milieu of grime ridden glitter-punk that tears itself apart from the inside. Racism pushes and pulls at its own being, ending up both as crass and as refined a vision of themselves as the band has ever been able to achieve. The band is coming off a rather productive run since their last album that's included a split with Eddy Current Suppression ring and the soundtrack to a feature-length film, Autonomy and Deliberation which sees release just prior to Racism. Still, with all that going on in the mean time, the band bring a dose of acerbic fire to their third full-length. It’s a well needed bit of grit in the teeth of 2012.
