“The raw power and sheer drive of Ut is quite straightforward and unmistakable. This is a true threatening guitar band." (N.Y. Rocker)
Ut was founded in NYC in Dec.1978 by Nina Canal, Jacqui Ham and Sally Young. Originating in the downtown No Wave scene and inheritors of the collision between rock, free jazz and the avant garde, Ut was conceived to explode the rigidity of conventional rock groups. Songs are constructed through collective improvisation. Each member plays all the instruments and rotates the role of singer/director. Ut soon became a serious force within the New York music scene and a seminal influence on later bands like Sonic Youth.
The band were joined briefly by film-maker Karen Achenbach in 1979 before resuming as a three-piece and migrating to London in 1981. Ut toured the UK with bands such as The Fall, The Birthday Party,The Raincoats and Pigbag. Originally releasing albums on their own label, Out Records, distributed byRough Trade Records, the band became a favourite of John Peel’s (http://www.bbc.co.uk/radio
The critically acclaimed In Gut’s House was originally released in 1988 and made NME’s Top 50 that year. As The Washington Post exclaimed, "With In Gut’s House, Ut has scraped and droned one of the finest underground rock albums of the year... The tightly interwoven, firmly focused sound... is rich, spooky, urgent and quite unexpectedly beautiful.”
In 1989 the band recorded and released the album Griller. Engineered by label mate Steve Albini, who shared Ut's raw aesthetic, Griller captured the gripping intensity and sheer power of the Ut experience.
In 1999, Ut were name-checked in Le Tigre’s feminist anthem “Hot Topic,” which pays tribute to dozens of inspiring artists, musicians, writers and feminists.
Newly reunited, the band recently completed a brief East Coast tour and are currently touring in Europe. Don't miss them !
