We're supporting Norway's Ungdomskulen on thursday night @ The Royal for the GO:Club, it's free entry to the first 50 people through the door and there'll be plenty of cheap drinks :-)
"Ungdomskulen manage to rock sans irony, finding a certain freedom in adolescent arrest. " Rating: 7/7
- Pitchfork -
"This terrific trio from Bergen, Norway favour trebly, jazz-toned guitar
skronk, syncopated bass and walloping, post-hardcore drums, but separate out
each sound, then sharpen and polish them until the finished combination
threatens to put your eye out. Fans of Sonic Youth, Battles, Fugazi, Liars
and very possibly The Rapture should get down to one of these shows."
"Ungdomskulen have produced the kind of record that leaves everything else floored in it..s wake. Bloody brilliant."
"As reckless, relentless and original as Sonic Youth"
"A thrilling, precision-tooled blend of math-rock, prog-jazz, art punk and post hardcore designed to blast fans of Battles, Fugazi, At The Drive In and Dungen into seventh heaven."
"Their sprawling, strangely funk-damaged rock weaves divergent musical
strands into an epic whole...A far less daunting proposition than it¹s
ambitious scope might suggest"
