The Ukiah Drag

BIO

Ukiah’s new LP ‘In the Reaper’s Quarters’ is a fine projection of basement rumination finding temptation in the halls of an ex-God. Straddling the church balcony, licking the scum off stained glass, crooked steeples refracting moonlight and blood…There is no erasure of the Satanic ego as it the Drag moves onto new spiritual drippings. While the band’s Dirt Trip single was hard but not necessarily unforgiving, ‘In the Reaper’s Quarters’ is a hellish maw that chews up tired rock and post punk tropes only to reanimate them in other austere and lonely offices. You may chew on its bones and swallow its scales but they’ll cling to your pockmarked soul indeed. Pulsating organs strobe their way through flattening riffs and creep beats; on many tracks the listener will hear a sex-crazed baby grand slinking sinfully into the reaper’s pit. Their rendition of Lee Hazlewood’s “Wait and See” will break the emotional turnstiles of many a troglodyte. This is a widow-making full length that marks and culminates every player’s previous efforts to a blunt and remorseless tee.

For fans of: The Fall, Jody Reynolds, Link Wray, The Stooges, The Damned
