New From Ukiah Drag

The Mad Mackerel

New From Ukiah Drag Last September we ran an “Introducing” post on  The Ukiah Drag .

We described their cassette release Jazz Mama Is Cryin as four tracks of brilliantly bleak, desolate, and warped blues and acid-rock – taut, tense, hypnotic and all consuming – like the evil offspring of Giant Sand and the Birthday Party.

Now they have a new 7″ primed for release. The Dirt Trip is the band’s first studio output recorded by Ben Greenberg of The Men and offers two deliciously menacing tracks.  The eponymous A-side wields a heavy creep-beat that cleans your dusty clock and takes you for a bourbon afterwards – self-conceited punk hypnosis.  The B-side consists of their rendition of the Stones/Coasters classic Poison Ivy.

Listen to both below. Pre-order the 7″ here.
