I Prefer The Obscure Remix Blog



It’s time to throw all those half-baked New Year resolutions out the window, and get back out on the town. Enough of the no smoking, no drinking rule for January, I need a gig! And what better than a night of prog, noise, math, rock, hardcore, post punk, and lots more. You name it, they do it. I’m talking about one of Norway’s finest exports, Ungdomskulen. Sinead has an excellent piece in her Musical Rooms section. Their myspace will also give you an idea of what to expect on the night.

Ungdomskulen are signed to the eclectic and intriguing Ever Records – home to Amiina, Cyann & Ben, Adjagas, Cortney Tidwell, and Howie Beck. Their debut album – Cry Baby – was released in October of last year. Their sound is incredibly difficult to pin down, but to these ears it’s a sprawling, ambitious mix of influences ranging from Sonic Youth to Black Sabbath, and Mars Volta to Battles. In short, it rocks!

I’ll be taking a trip along to Whelan’s on Friday night to check them out. The night is put on by a new independent promoter, Forever Presents. They have kindly given us a pair of tickets to give away for the show. All you have to do is mail us at iprefertheobscureremix@gmail.com with the answer to this simple question.

Forever Presents are putting on another great show in Whelan’s on February 18th, name the band.

First correct answer wins the tickets.

  1. Jesus, I used to find out what you were up to by overhearing you on the phone. Now I read it on your blog. How postmodern.
