Ubu Roi – Nice Dude EP (2013)

I just returned from Seattle, and those chowder eaters are doing something right. The record stores were full of folks and the shows I attended had a mix of music types present. I am fine with just a few days of sunlight a year, but I guess that would be detrimental to the living.

Anyone who has listened to my band’s music (and we just put out a new record by the way), knows that I have a thing for fast, punchy rock songs. Especially when the lyrics are about drinking booze. Ubo Roi do both of these things in spades. They also happen to be far more competent players than we are, even though I assume they are also soaked in booze while the tape is rolling. Just check out the first track’s lyrics:

“I don’t wanna eat no cheeseburgers, French fries
I wanna drink some alcohol
I don’t wanna eat no pizza pie
I wanna drink some alcohol”

  1. Alfred Jarry reference for the win. That dude was crazy, his book the Supermale is one the most fucked up things I've ever read. I am looking forward to this EP.
