The Ukiah Drag are Floridians in New England exile: haunted by grave, aberrant definitions of rock n’ roll, post punk and what it ultimately means for the Superego to be blitzed by the Id. The Dirt Trip 7″ is the band’s first studio output recorded by Ben Greenberg of The Men and offers two menacing tracks. The eponymous A-side, “Dirt Trip” wields a heavy creep-beat that cleans your dusty clock and takes you for a bourbon afterwards – self-conceited punk hypnosis.
Wharf Cat Records is pleased to welcome The Ukiah Drag to their family and is set to release the Dirt Trip 7″ on March 4th around their North Eastern tour dates with The Men. Personnel of The Drag stem from the Tampa scene – recording and sharing bands with members of Merchandise like Cult Ritual and have previously ran with the Ascetic House pack on which they released their debut tape and toured with Destruction Unit. There is no mistaking their wall-eyed disparity from previous efforts… listen for yourself.
