The Uglies - Get Your Ass to Mars
I'll let you into a secret. It's not Just Some Punk Songs that broadcasts a cool punk show on the Global Punk Network, there's a bunch of other great shows too. I was listening to one last night, Richter Scale's Amateur Hour. Richter Scale Records head honcho Lomo Steve was playing his usual selection of the weird and the woderful when he blew me away with the track that I've posted below. Before I share details of that I'll just point you in the direction of Steve's show as I think you need to check it out.
You can listen to the saved version of his latest show here : https://www.mixcloud.com/Richter_Scale_Records/gpn-presents-richter-scales-amateur-hour-and-a-bit-4/

Now for the important part of this update....
The Uglies are from Adelaide and feature Lord CHONGO Simmons (vocals), Mr Perfect (guitar), Jonno 'Boy California' Klynsmith (drums) and DOC Colman (bass). They've previously featured in a host of other bands such as Vaginors, Starvation, Manhunt, Cum, BCF, No Action, Talc etc... In 2015 they released a 6 track demo titled We Are The Uglies on their own Lethal Dose Records (https://lethaldoserecords.bandcamp.com/album/we-are-the-uglies).
Now they're about to release their debut album, Keeping Up With The Uglies, it's due soon on Nopatience Records (http://www.nopatience.org/) and you can check out a few tracks here : https://nopatiencerecords.bandcamp.com/album/lp-out-early-2017-2
Their sound is influenced by garage, surf rock, early US hardcore and classic Australian punk. Turn up your volume and enjoy, this is Get Your Ass To Mars....
