Home / Biography / Ultra


At the same time when promising bands could still thrive in regional marketplaces, yet under no circumstances draw the interest from the nationally distributed main brands, Texan band Ultra’s distinctive and highly professional twin-guitar boogie rock and roll went criminally overlooked despite their logging a huge selection of touring mls and four whole years from their house base of San Antonio, TX. Founded in 1974 by vocalist Don Evans and guitarist Galen Niles following dissolution of their previous music group, Homer (whose second guitarist Truck Wilks continued to a single career using the Bombay Tears record for Mercury Information), Ultra finished its lineup with guitarist Larry McGuffin, bassist Scott Stephens, and drummer Tom Schleuning, and shortly became openers of preference for main touring works playing in Tx. However, as stated above, their very own lone star under no circumstances shone very shiny outside the condition confines, in order that a five-song, white-label promotional EP was everything they were able to press throughout their life time. Finally operating out of persistence, and worried about the encroaching progress of both disco and punk, Ultra silently split up in 1978; but their recordings will be heroically salvaged over twenty years later on, and compiled right into a collection entitled just Ultra by Tx’ personal Monster Records.
