I would like to hear from you asap.

    The raw power and sheer drive of Ut is quite straightforward and unmistakable. This is a true threatening guitar band.” — NY Rocker

Ut is a radical rock group that was founded in NYC in December 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 and each member plays all the instruments and rotates the role of singer/director.

The band were joined briefly by filmmaker Karen Achenbach in 1979 before resuming as a three-piece and migrating to London in 1981. They 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, the band became a favourite of John Peel’s and recorded sessions for his show in 1984 and 1987 before joining forces with Blast First.

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.

A seminal influence on later bands such as Sonic Youth, every Ut performance blasted away everything inessential.

    If we list their precursors – from Pere Ubu through DNA to The Raincoats, and from Television through The Cramps to The Runaways – all we’re left with is lists, and a space too wide to pin them down. — Mark Sinker

    “The idea that we each in our own way strive to push the limits of how our playing takes place, so as not to fall back on old well-worn paths and riffs … that’s what excites us.” — Ut
