Noise Rock in the tradition of the 90s Alternative Tentacles with the influence of bands from Jesus Lizard to Zen Guerilla became a quite rare sonic texture these days between the worlds of Stonerrock and the dark edge of current Sludge, Drone and Doom. Originating from the Noise Rock combo Tailgate, UGH! managed to create a completely unique musical world of their own. Neckbreaking uneven rhythms and melodies that stick to the ear, unawaited twists and catchy riffs go along with a deep sense of humour and weltschmerz as well. UGH! makes an artistic statement no-one who is into hard and deep music should miss!
