UV Race - Racism lp (In The Red)


"God is saying this to you: Racism is the third album by Australia’s
most genius avant-tards The UV Race, dragging melodious pop songs
through a devolved, malodorous glam-punk aesthetic. It continues the
stylistic jump from their self-titled debut to sophomore full-length
Homo, further exploring the possibilities of the first wave of punk,
incorporating orchestral arrangements and gutter-glitter psych stomp,
like if Vom tried to write their own Forever Changes; like if the
Electric Eels backed up Bolan or if The Fall put out a record on Crass
Records. There are tuneful lamentations of heartbreak and loss alongside
very debased, toilet-humor punk licks; Lovecraftian psych-cult
morbidity at one moment and rousing anti-anthems against self denial the
It has been an especially productive year for the band—they are about
to launch their first feature-length film, Autonomy and Deliberation,
and the soundtrack LP recorded for the film comes alongside Racism, a
split 7-inch with Native Cats (on Ride the Snake), a split live LP with
Eddy Current Suppression Ring (on Almost Ready, originally released on a
limited run of cassettes back in 2008), and the Gypsy King single (from
Racism, on HoZac). All this, plus the output of the numerous other
Melbourne bands in which members of UV Race play—Asps, Dick Diver, East
Link, Guy & Marcus Blackman Experimentation, Lower Plenty, School of
Radiant Living, Soma Coma, Straightjacket Nation and Total
Control—reveal a relentless commitment for the sake of the song" - In The Red
