Did anyone see Ut on that tour they did recently?
I saw them in Glasgow and, oh my god, what the hell? Total crap. It was really disappointing.
The bands supporting them (North American War, Divorce) were both awesome and got it dealt wi’. Ut, however, stopped multiple times during multiple songs so that they could turn up pedals or change amps or adjust the mike stand. They’d spend ten, fifteen minutes fucking about with all their gear and end up not making any difference to the sound at all. There were short flashes of greatness, but these soon dissipated into nothingness when they stopped to fanny about. I felt embarrassed for them, the promoter, the audience and myself.
It looked like three bored housewives remembering about a band they had when they were younger and saying ‘oh hey, let’s play some shows’. Apparently they were pure divas when they played in Manchester.
