"PiK Review"

"The second band of the night certainly didn't have that problem. Infact they stole the show. One of Kingston's... nay... Canada's finest rock acts, Sum Thin Ugly put on another dynamite show. From the opening blast of Circus Of Power's "In The Wind" on thru to the band's hard rockin' originals "S.T.U." (yes it stands for Sum Thin Ugly) and "Take It" to the 'bic waving' "Freedom", Sum Thin Ugly were on fire. Lead guitarist Randy Cook's behind the head solo might have been the night's finest moment. Bassist Steve Ubdegrove and drummer Dean Neron pounded out the crushing grooves with presicion and poise while vocalist/guitarist Eddy Keaney belted out pitch perfect renditons of Sum Thin Ugly's raunchy rock n roll songs. Simply put Sum Thin Ugly should have headlined because neither of the other bands even held a candle to them to be quite honest.
Thank god for Sum Thin Ugly saving the night or else I would have wanted my money back ...wait I didn't pay to get in... "

Sum Thin Ugly delivers largely commercial, old school energetic feel good rock tunes. From the start of S.T.U. it delivers ample hooks, catchy melodies and imaginative harmonies – captivating the listener. With a disc full of radio ready potential hit tracks it was difficult to pick a favorite. With well planned orchestration, strong musicianship and powerful lead vocals, along with tight harmonies, Sum Thin Ugly stood out from the masses. In our opinion the band is ready to take it to the next level.

There is no doubt that Canada's Sum Thin Ugly can produce hook-infested music S.T.U.'s bare bones studio production give the disc some distinction Right out of the gate, with the first track ("S.T.U."), it rocks well alongside more heavier tunes like "Believe," or when left to its own like on S.T.U.'s take on a ballad, "Freedom." Randy Cooke's guitar work, along with Steve Ubdegrove's bass and Dean Neron's straight ahead drumming is thick..

For this and other reasons, Sum Thin Ugly probably sounds great live. Imagining this album played as a set in a small club or theater with the amps overdriven and guitars turned to "10", makes a trip to the ticket booth a plausible idea.

Feeling a bit camera shy


What do you get when four life long friends raised on The Beatles, Led Zeppelin, Jimi Hendrix, Black Sabbath, KISS, G ‘n’ R, Alice In Chains and S.T.P. decide to form a band…..………..For vocalist \ guitarist Eddy Keaney, lead guitarist Randy Cooke, bassist Steve Ubdegrove and drummer Dean Neron, it has resulted in a kick ass hard rock act affectionately known as SUM THIN UGLY.

For any original band, individuality lies within a unique mix of musical influence and personality. With the release of their independent self-titled debut, SUM THIN UGLY have proven just that. From the bluesy, hard rockin’ opening track “S.T.U.” to the soulful closing ballad “Freedom” the band has shown a musical diversity that is truly their own.

A string of successful live shows at such Kingston hot spots as The Scherzo Pub, Stages Night Club, The Iron Horse Saloon, Elixir, Cocamo, Brandee’s and The Merchant McLiam have gained the band a loyal following in and around their home town. They were fortunate enough to perform to enthusiastic Saturday night crowds at the prestigious Horseshoe Tavern in Toronto and Trudeau Park’s famous May 24 bash in Tweed. SUM THIN UGLY have donated their services to charity events “Jingle Bell Rock” for Pro Kids and “Kingston United Music Festival” which raised over $5000.00 for the United Way. They’re professional work ethic and positive attitude has helped them build a reputation for being a hard rockin’ band that can be counted on to deliver a high energy live show every time they hit the stage.
