The Ukiah Drag: Dirt Trip 7"

Wharf Cat Records


Debut 7" from this band features some members of some Florida bands you might have heard of, but Ukiah Drag actually resides in New England. The a-side here is a dense, lurching post-punk song... it's very song-oriented, unlike a lot of post-punk stuff I've been hearing lately, and actually reminds me a bit of some of the stuff on Olympia's Perennial Records. As for the b-side, it's a little different, with a kind of fall-inspired rockabilly lurch... it actually reminds me a bit of Whatever Brains (except the vocals), so I guess by extension it can also fit in with that whole Protomartyr / PC Worship / etc. scene... a killer single with sick artwork to boot.
