The new issue of Z-Gun by accomplished publishers R. Wells and S. Soriano features a couple of favourable references to the UV Race and other niche-cultural curios, most notably our countrymen feedtime, with quotes from fanatic UV Race researcher L O'Regan. Read it.

In 2007 the original members of the UV Race got together for our first practise and recorded four songs. One of them is this Velvet Underground song we'd like to share with you: https://rcpt.yousendit.com/674983086/b3e331d9790b8a5ebb8df14bbbaf6877
All songs became our first cassette demo.
The new 7" is called MALARIA. It has been mastered and sent to the label. The label is called S-S records and they're outta California in the US of A.

above is a shot of Jensen H. Chungchester filming what will become the new U.V. Race film entitled "Usually Vulnerable".
This particular shot was taken from a performance in Warragul, Victoria. An area not known for its generous amount of ultra violet exposure.

The UV Race is always an entertaining if “different” experience. Tonight, we’re standing in a Lithuanian club watching a band fronted by a guy from Warragul who is wearing a sombrero-like hat with an Australian flag patch on it. When Marcus sings, “I’m so tired/I’m gonna be fired” on ‘Dog’, you feel his pain. The set is full of loose, primal party punk rock.
Nobody can accuse the UV Race of being slouches when it comes to playing live shows either. Earlier, they had played at the Tote with Late Arvo Sons, and there was even talk of a midnight gig at some bike courier party where there would be an expectant fight. Halfway into their set they are joined by Franz and McKee who add another element to the band’s loose shambolic spirit.
That's alright, but how about this:
"The UV Race conjure pure white light from the most delicate sun flares channelled through every concieveable dimension to your left and right up and down, you feel it in your ass and in your toes. They are beyond punk, delivering sensuality and brutality with the same hand, the only incarnation of Abraxas in guitar/drum music in the last decade." That's a better review, courtesy of NEIL YOUNG who heard our 7" on his Aus tour and dropped these kind words in a throwaway interview in the local street rag. Thanks Mr. Young.

In a French interview from '73 with John Cale (Croissant Hate #4) he speaks of the first Stooges album recording sessions when, following the recording of 'Ann', he stepped outside onto the cold NY streets for a cigarette, pondering what to do with the weighty outro to the song. "I remembered thinking that they should do it for longer. They had done for five minutes, then it was mastered down to two minutes, but that pounding rhythmic sensation should have lasted for an hour. Maybe ten. I was thinking this, as I was both seduced and disgusted by the primal idiocy of the sound they had just recorded, and like a primitive New Guinean gazing on the face of a mongoloid of blind tribesman, they had a shamanistic quality, something to revere. That moment I realised that they were a seer, a handful of bones tossed onto the floor of the avante-gard and rock traditions to recognise the future lay in the idiotic and the primal, the thudding beat and the screeching noise that I'd had a hand in designing, and it frightened me. That very moment, the sun flashed in the corner of my eye as if to reassure me that this was the point at which something new was happening, something had begun. Some new race of creature had been born to slouch toward Bethlehem." Whether they new of this or not, the UV Race understood it perfectly, and they chose the sun as their symbol, stating boldly they came from the sun, and to the sun they will return, recognising that the thud and the screeeeeccchh are perfection together. Amen.
The mix tape number one is actually a CDR. It's mostly unreleased demo tracks from a few different recordings, plus a few songs from other bands that we cover / endorse, like the E Eels, Vom, Tactics, Seeds, Saints, Rocket From The Tombs, The Mad and The Worst. It's our soundtrack to the most memorable moments of your life, like when you first learnt to swim, when you first broke a bone, when you first got your period or got caught measuring yourself by your big sister while wearing your muddha's strap-on smeared with yoghurt. If you want one of these, please send $100 in cash to JESUS GG ALLIN CHRIST c/o ALLAH, HEAVEN or just come see us play music in live settings with real people. THANKS TO THE SUPER WILD HORSES.
