Artist: UV RACE
Title: S/T
Format: LP
Label: Aarght
Country: Australia
Price: $15.00
"Crude proto-punk reminiscent of the glory days of VOM, Modern Lovers, Zakary Thaks, Electric Eels, Crime, and a whole host of historic losers. Aaarrggght! Records are very proud indeed to present you with this killer slice of idiot savant punk rock. "The full-length debut masterpiece from Melbourne avant-tard six piece. Following two limited-edition (and now highly sought after) seven inch singles released here and in the USA, the UV Race have fulfi lled the potential only hinted at on those EPs. Produced by Mikey Young of Eddy Current Suppression Ring. "Bringing to mind some of the cornerstones of mid 70s proto-punk (Modern Lovers, Gizmos, Electric Eels and the like), the UV Race likewise avoid rote punk trappings with their really quite sophisticated use of piano and saxophone, and the over-riding presence of singer Marcus introverted musings on life as a small town misfit. His sincerity and unconventionality is what makes the UV Race compelling listening." -Aarght

Title: Homo
Format: LP
Label: In the Red
Country: USA
Price: $13.00
"2007 saw the first recording from Melbourne, Australias The UV RACE-a self-released tape featuring four songs of primitive thud, minimal assemblage and high-energy expression. Over the next three years the band has continued to show dedication to these themes with a string of cassettes and singles and their 2009 self-titled debut full-length, and their sophomore album Homo delivers on the promise of these early releases. Working again with EDDY CURRENT SUPPRESSION RING guitarist MIKEY YOUNG at the recording and mixing stages, The UV Race developed the songs over several sessions. Their willingness to explore is clear, from the psychotic bedroom confessional of "Girl in My Head" with its confident teen-heat swagger, to the seven-minute closer "Homo," where nods to the Ramones enclose a psychedelic freak-out reminiscent of the closing minutes of The Stooges Funhouse. In between, the band explores influences ranging from their Australian proto-punk and garage fascinations to American country, Krautrock and UK post-punk, citing the Velvet Underground and the Saints as influences. Includes members of TOTAL CONTROL and STRAIGHTJACKET NATION. Includes digital download coupon." -In The Red

Title: Racism
Format: LP
Label: In The Red
Country: USA
Price: $15.00
"God is saying this to you: Racism is the third album by Australias most genius avant-tards THE UV RACE, dragging melodious pop songs through a devolved, malodorous glam-punk aesthetic. It continues the stylistic jump from their self-titled debut to sophomore full-length Homo, further exploring the possibilities of the first wave of punk, incorporating orchestral arrangements and gutter-glitter psych stomp, like if Vom tried to write their own Forever Changes; like if the Electric Eels backed up Bolan or if The Fall put out a record on Crass Records. There are tuneful lamentations of heartbreak and loss alongside very debased, toilet-humor punk licks; Lovecraftian psych-cult morbidity at one moment and rousing anti-anthems against self denial the next. It has been an especially productive year for the band-they are about to launch their first feature-length film, Autonomy and Deliberation, and the soundtrack LP recorded for the film comes alongside Racism, a split 7-inch with Native Cats (on Ride the Snake), a split live LP with Eddy Current Suppression Ring (on Almost Ready, originally released on a limited run of cassettes back in 2008), and the Gypsy King single (from Racism, on HoZac). All this, plus the output of the numerous other Melbourne bands in which members of UV Race play-Asps, Dick Diver, East Link, Guy & Marcus Blackman Experimentation, Lower Plenty, School of Radiant Living, Soma Coma, Straightjacket Nation and Total Control-reveal a relentless commitment for the sake of the song. LP includes digital download coupon." -In The Red.

Title: Malaria
Format: 7"
Label: S-S
Country: USA
Price: $6.00
"In the beginning, the U.V. Race were the product of two rural Australians imagination. Throughout high school, Al & Marcus had the band but no sound. A few years go by and Al moves to Melbourne and joins Straight Jacket Nation with Daniel -- they play speedy hardcore. Marcus moves to Melbourne and with his pal Al, Daniel, Moses and Emily, U.V. Race made some noise. After some playing around, they released a great single on Aarght! Records and a split tape with pals Eddy Current Suppression Ring. Enter S.S. Records and this new record, Malaria, the U.V. Races second record. Four songs long, the UVs take their influences (X, Cramps, Electric Eels, VU, etc.) and get loose. While the songs are songs, nothing is too planned out as the band thrives on spontaneity. Captured on tape by Eddy Current guitarist Mikey Young, Malaria is yet another great record to come out of todays Melbourne DIY scene." -S-S

Title: Acid Trip
Format: 7"
Label: Sweet Rot
Country: Canada
Price: $7.00
"Fourth single from Melbourne, Australias UV RACE and just the like the other three, this one is fantastic. The A-side sees the band pushing forward into somewhat newer territories with "Acid Trip" their hazy/dreamy take on psychedelic pop, albeit with the typical UV Race retardo-punk bent. The flip "Speed Freak" is a more direct two minute burst of UV Race greatness. Expertly recorded by MIKEY YOUNG (Eddy Current Suppression Ring) with perhaps their best sleeve art yet. New LP, Homo, coming soon on In the Red." - Sweet Rot.
