Packed venue, great atmosphere - and after waiting 25-odd years to see them, UKJ did not disappoint :)

Ugly Kid Joe, Rescue Rooms, Nottingham - 3rd September 2018

Thoroughly enjoyable night. Love this band and saw the in London a few years ago. The added bonus was also seeing the lead singers support band which was very Ozzy Osbourne is style. Overall, great intimate gig and old school rock at it's best - damn it i'm gonna start having guitar lessons. Now 40 it brought back a lot of memories when I was at secondary school and loving the band back then.

"UKJ and PCBS"
Verified purchase

Ugly Kid Joe, Concorde 2, Brighton - 21st April 2018

Great venue. Good crowd. Easy to get served at the bar and staff were V polite. Phil Cambell and the BS were fantastic but I was disappointed with UKJ. They lacked energy-especially after the lively performance of PC and the BS.

Ugly Kid Joe, O2 Institute2 Birmingham, Birmingham - 19th April 2018

A hard rocking gig, Whitfield was very busy fronting first band Yellowcake, joining in with Phil Campbell and the B*stard Sons on Born to Raise Hell and then leading Ugly Kid Joe for an hour and forty minutes. Epic!

Ugly Kid Joe, Academy 2, Manchester - 17th April 2018

The three bands that played were great. Ugly Kid Joe never disappoint, they are great live. The venue is fine, the drinks at the bar are a reasonable price. We did a meet and greet with the band, nice guys! This is the sixth time I have seen them (so I could be classed a stalker) they are always good. It is a cheap night out and great fun.

Ugly Kid Joe rose to prominence in the early nineties. Irreverent and sarcastic, the band is known for their use of sardonic puns for their titles - even their very name is a reaction to the glam metal band Pretty Boy Floyd. Drawing influence from heavy rock and alternative metal whilst presenting an image of partying and slacker culture, they have continued to endure past the decade they typified as they resonate with ever younger audiences.

The snotty upstarts have just announced an important tour which sees them stop at Rescue Rooms in Nottingham, The Globe at Cardiff and Southampton’s Engine Rooms during September 2018.

Originally formed by childhood friends Whitfield Crane and Klaus Eichstadt during 1987 in Isla Vista, California. The band released their first EP As Ugly As They Wanna Be in 1991. The record contained their massive single Everything About You, it became double platinum and went on to become the biggest selling EP in America.

Their first album came out the next year. America’s Least Wanted was recorded in just two months to ensure they would be ready to play support for Ozzy Osbourne. Featuring Everything About You and their cover of Cat’s In The Cradle, the record hit #27 in the US charts upon its release in 1992 and also eventually reached double platinum sales.

The band would continue to tour the world and enjoy widening popularity with the release of their LPs Menace To Sobriety in 1995 and Motel California in 1996 before the original break-up of the band in 1997.

In 2010 Eichstadt announced it was the band’s intention to reunite. The band have subsequently released the 2012 EP Stairway To Hell and the 2015 LP Uglier Than They Used To Be.
