Quietus Mix 43: UT Instinct
The Quietus , September 22nd, 2011 12:18

In advance of their first proper live appearance in the UK in 20 years, seminal no-wave/avant rock band Ut contribute the latest in our mix series

Recently reformed New York avant rockers and John Peel favourites Ut are returning to play the UK this week for the first time in 20 years, starting with tomorrow's show at London's Lexington. Having emerged from New York's fertile melting pot of jazz, avant garde and punk influences in the late 70s, the group became contemporaries of the likes of The Fall and The Birthday Party and proved hugely influential on later NYC groups such as Sonic Youth.

Their Quietus mix brings together a host of songs from before and during the band's main tenure, beginning with another great New York band, The Velvets, and winding its way through jazz, punk and post-punk.
