Explaining their music as “avant-tard” and “idiot savant punk rock and roll,” the UV Contest are an Australian clothes whose music combines the structural trappings of garage area punk using a purposefully off-kilter strike that fits somewhere within deliberate primitivism and art-damaged provocation. Shaped in Melbourne in 2007, the UV Competition features guitarist Alistair Montfort, vocalist Marcus Rechsteiner, Alex Glazov on keyboards, Georgia Rose on sax and harmonica, Moses Williams on bass, and drummer Dan Stewart. The group performed its 1st display in July 2007 and released a demonstration on cassette later on that same yr, using the UV Competition displaying a enduring affinity for the lo-fi analog format. After a small number of cassette-only produces, the UV Competition shifted up to vinyl fabric in middle-2008 using their 1st 7″, “Lego Guy,” issued from the Aussie indie label Aarght Information. Aarght also released the band’s following discharge, a split-live cassette with Eddy Current Suppression Band; Mikey Teen of ECSR was an early on booster of UV Competition and has created the majority of their recordings. Another 7″, “Malaria,” was released by American indie imprint SS Information in July 2009, as well as the group’s initial full-length album made an appearance afterwards the same calendar year on Aarght; originally distributed just on cassette, it had been afterwards reissued on Compact disc and LP. This year 2010, UV Competition toured america for the very first time (the itinerary included an end at that year’s Gonerfest in Memphis, Tennessee), and another 7″, “I Hate You,” made an appearance on the Popular Idiots label in the fall. In early 2011, just one more 7″, “Acidity Trip,” strike the racks via Special Rot Information, and observed American garage area punk label In debt Information released UV Race’s second record, Homo, in past due March the same calendar year. Their next task was filming and documenting the soundtrack for the film, Autonomy and Deliberation.
