After a 19-year hiatus, raucous rockers Ugly Kid Joe return with Uglier Than They Used Ta Be.
The album, which was recorded at JT Studios and Balance Studios in Louisiana under the helm of producer and UKJ guitarist Dave Fortman (Slipknot, Godsmack, Evanescence.
Uglier Than They Used Ta Be boasts a collection of well-crafted rock tunes, from the riff driven "Let The Record Play" to the hard-hitting "She's Already Gone" and "Hell Ain't Hard To Find." The album offers up a collection of some of the best songs ever written by the band.
"It's a full circle of sorts," says Crane. "There was a lot of love and talent in one room and that is exactly what this album sounds like."
In addition to the nine newly written original songs, the album features a couple of cover songs including Rare Earth's version of "Papa Was A Rolling Stone" with Australian chart-topping vocalist Dallas Frasca lending her unmistakable vocals behind Crane, and the Motörhead classic "Ace of Spades" with a very special guest appearance from guitarist Phil Campbell who lends his signature sound to the timeless track. Campbell also appears on the tracks "My Old Man" and "Under The Bottom.

NEW & SEALED VINYL
All of our products are brand new and sealed direct from the distributors warehouse. We work with over 15 distributors worldwide and this is exactly how we manage to get such awesome titles at awesome prices and usually ahead of schedule!
It is really important to keep in mind that, although the records are new and sealed they sometimes have 3 or 4 ports of call before they make it to us and then you. The manufacturer, the distributor, customs, our warehouse and then out to you. This does mean that, from time to time, albeit very rarely, some records (particularly the covers) will have slight deficiencies such as small creases, split seams, corner scuffs etc. This is normal and part of the process and are generally considered ‘superficial transit wear’.
We are an online business so our records aren’t getting flicked through and/or tossed around daily. We store our merchandise in a temperature controlled warehouse and always handle and package them with great care to ensure you receive them in as good condition as possible.
Should you choose to shop with us, we ask for your understanding of this process and realise that ‘new and sealed’ doesn’t mean ‘straight off the production line’. If you are an avid collector and are looking for an absolutely pristine copy, please just email us first and we would be more than happy to provide info/photos of the item.
