Ut - In Gut's House 2xLP
Release Date: January 31st, 2020
Radical No Wave pioneers Ut reissue their critically acclaimed In Gut's House album – their second studio album originally released in 1988 on Blast First Records, now fully remastered with original cover artwork, song lyrics and band photos. It made the year's NME "Top 50 Albums."
Ut is a radical rock group founded by Nina Canal, Jacqui Ham and Sally Young in Dec '78. Originating in the downtown NYC No Wave scene and inheritors of the collision between rock, free jazz and the avant-garde, they exploded the rigidity of conventional rock, constructing songs through collective improvisation, swapping instruments and rotating the role of singer / director.
Migrating to London in 1981, Ut played with bands like The Fall and The Birthday Party and released music on their own label Out Records, including Live At The Venue in 1982, the Ut EP in 1984, the Confidential 12-inch in 1985 and their first studio album Conviction in 1986. Ut became a favorite of BBC's John Peel and recorded sessions for his show in 1984, 1985 and 1987.
"In Gut's House, from beginning to end, is a chance seized and transported. Their vision is a total vision. Ut make unreasonably adult music, with raw complex emotions! There's no one like them." – Mark Sinker, NME
