UV Race - Homo lp (In The Red)


2007 saw the first recording from Melbourne, Australia’s The UV Race—a
self-released tape featuring four songs of primitive thud, minimal
assemblage and high-energy expression. Over the next three years the
band has continued to show dedication to these themes with a string of
cassettes and singles and their 2009 self-titled debut full-length, and
their sophomore album Homo delivers on the promise of these early
releases. Working again with Eddy Current Suppression Ring guitarist
Mikey Young at the recording and mixing stages, The UV Race developed
the songs over several sessions. Their willingness to explore is clear,
from the psychotic bedroom confessional of “Girl in My Head” with its
confident teen-heat swagger, to the seven-minute closer “Homo,” where
nods to the Ramones enclose a psychedelic freak-out reminiscent of the
closing minutes of The Stooges’ Funhouse. In between, the band explores
influences ranging from their Australian proto-punk and garage
fascinations to American country, Krautrock and UK post-punk, citing the
Velvet Underground and the Saints as influences.
