Feeling a bit camera shy


About Non Ultra Joy... Well, we could go in a few different directions with this, but basically, Non Ultra Joy is what happened when John Girgus (Aberdeen, Spider Problem), Chris McRitchie (Flupejac, Big Stone City) and Dave McKay (Driveblind) decided to get together and play in the early part of 2010 in Los Angeles.

Initial beer-fueled rehearsals saw the trio covering Bad Motor Scooter by Sammy Hagar's Montrose, Game of Pricks by indie-rock heroes Guided By Voices and Midnight to Six Man by 60's garage rockers the Pretty Things.

With such stellar musical signposts to lead the way, the band quickly honed their sound while co-songwriters Girgus and McRitchie swapped instruments as well as lead vocal duties.
By March, after a few live outings to test the waters, Non Ultra Joy called upon producer Dave Newton (The Little Ones, the Soft Pack, the Henry Clay People) to record the band's debut EP. You should be listening to the results right now.

The band's sound has been described as "The Cure mugging Dinosaur Jr", but it might be the other way round. Either way, I reckon Messrs Mascis and Smith would approve. You can decide for yourself...
