Ubik - John Wayne (Is A Cowboy (And Is On Twitter))
So the most popular track on yesterday's Just Some Punk Songs show? That'd be the one you're getting today.
Ubik started out as a side project of melbourne goth punk band MASSES (https://massesmelbourne.bandcamp.com/) and describe their sound as "catchy brat-beat with a little sprinkling of anarcho goodness." Featuring a line up of Ashleigh Wyatt (vocals), Nellie Pearson (bass/vocals), Tessa Tribe (guitar) and Max Kohane (drums), they featured on here early last year with a song from their excellent Self Titled ep (https://justsomepunksongs.blogspot.com/2018/01/ubik-andrew-bolts-twitter-account.html) and they again impressed later that year with the tracks they contributed to a split ep with another great Australian band, Cold Meat.
They've got a new mini album coming on Iron Lung Records, it'll be available on vinyl (125 translucent lime green, 125 creamsicle orange, 350 black) from 27th Sept and you can pre order it here : http://ironlungrecords.bigcartel.com/product/ubik-next-phase-mlp
The first track is available now as a name your price download https://ubikpunk.bandcamp.com/ As you might expect, it's a raging blast of energy and a definite appetite whetter for the lp. It's called John Wayne (Is A Cowboy (And Is On Twitter))...
