Portrait


UV PØP (Ultra Violent PØP) reformed late last year, perhaps inspired or merely supported by their affiliation with Brooklyn imprint Sacred Bones Records, continuing a modest stint that previously ended after several years 1980s. They were interestingly soft-spoken, releasing their LP No Songs Tomorrow in 1981 to "one week" on the Rough Trade Charts and though I don't know their history as well as I'd like, the original pressing became a sought after bit of regional and punk esoterica. Continuing the Brooklyn sets' new tradition of reissuing neglected classics, Sacred Bones is giving the album a second outing on April 3, though you can pre-order it here.
