"Maps&Atlaeses, Colour & ute at the Regal Oxford"

The evenings proceedings opened with Ute, who managed to deliver a set that balanced all-out spiky guitar bravado with stripped down experimentalism. Songs like ‘Panic/Float’ showed that they could keep a song at a slow burning pace without it becoming tedious, with clapping and strong backing vocals complimenting singer Ollie’s vocal melodies. This was followed by the dark, brooding, almost waltzing ‘Airborne’, a piece that showed off the trio’s knack for diversity and power, with bassist Mike mixing pounding rhythms with distorted riffs that wouldn’t be out of place on a six string rather than a four. Their mix of influences and sounds wrapped up in an accomplished package certainly entranced the audience. - www.thelineofbestfit.com

musically, we are concerned with pushing the traditional trio format as far as we can. lyrically, we are concerned with continuing the folk tradition of telling stories old and new. we have shared the stage with the likes of this town needs guns, maps&atlases, mimas, broadcast2000, tim and sam's tim and the sam band, colour, the great eskimo hoax, minnaars, a.genuine.freakshow..and then some.. we have also played at the secret garden party, equitruck and the antic banquet. we have one record out, which we were so excited about that we threw a party at the brixton windmill and packed it out to well over capacity.
