Topic: URANIUM CLUB (USA) + LUCY LEAVE + GRUB + BASIC DICKS - Oxford 7/11/16
Awesome punk from Minneapolis, with an LP out on Static Shock Records and a new 7" on the way on Lumpy Records.
"Uranium Club play a kind of minimalist, agitated, catchy punk rock that reminds us of Wire before they released 'Pink Flag', but with an extra snotty attitude and bundles of energy. For a more recent comparison try early Total Control or the Shitty Limits. Each of the seven tracks on here explode from the vinyl, with each track more energetic than the one before, and they'll all be stuck in your head for weeks afterwards." (Static Shock Records)

These are one of the best bands in Oxford at the moment and are so explosive live. Don't know quite what they're doing but it's a warped mash up of Sonic Youth and Syd Barrett and The Breeders and it rules.
Fuzzed out slacker punk/garage/psych in a world where it's always 4:20... Like The Stooges and Spacemen 3. Or Fu Manchu if someone snuck a Killed By Death comp into their AC/DC collection.
A pissed off lo-fi pogo hardcore racket.
