Never Ending Internet Mix Tape

a musical exquisite corpse. look it up.

Vol 03 / Trk 01 / Spartacus / Ungdomskulen

To kick off round three I’m starting with a song that could take the mix in many directions. I discovered Ungdomskulen (junior high school) watching them make Spaghetti Bolongnese in their apartment on Current TV.  I’m not a big fan of prog oriented rock but holy crap do I love this goofball power-trio band from Bergen, Norway. “Glory Hole”, “Modern Drummer” and “Ordinary Son” are all stand outs from the Cry-Baby album, but “Spartacus” is my favorite, with lots of changes, some great Fugazi inspired guitar and the vocal delivery in the chorus reminds me of Album era PiL.

Last.fm member sabsludge described them thus: “King Crimson song structures + Black Sabbath riffs + Sonic Youth tone + Dinosaur Jr vocals = Ungdomskulen. In short, this band is better than eating at Burger King twice per week.”

    Reminds me a lot of McLusky and then later, Future of the Left. Thoughts for the next track.
