Formed in 2003, The Utards' music rings more familiar in the ears of Tucson-area law enforcement officers than in the ears of Tucson-area rock fans. Nonetheless, the 'Tards soldier on, practicing in sheds, garages, and back bedrooms citywide - until complaints necessitate a change of venue. Luckily, local bars and clubs have been a bit more tolerant, perhaps due to the copious quantities of alcohol consumed by fans at Utards shows. The Utards' debut EP 'Monkey Junk,' foisted on an unsuspecting public at large on 16 November 2004, features what would be about nine solid minutes of '80s-styled hardcore, except performed somewhat more slowly so that the disc actually plays out over about sixteen minutes. If this appeals to you, pick up a copy of 'Monkey Junk' - if enough people do so, perhaps the 'Tards will finally find their way out of your next-door neighbor's garage currently being used as a practice space.
