U.P.S. were from Tucson Arizona....I met/discovered the music of these guys when I was living on Fell Street in S.F. My buddy/band mate Zoran was always meeting people in weird places, he was a total social butterfly. At any rate Zoran met these guys at a show, or on Haight street, I forget exactly, but he ended up bringing them by to my pad. A few of the people traveling in this two band tour stayed with me for a few nights, the rest stayed I think with Zoran in his slum pit. I forget who the other Arizona band was that was on tour with UPS(Last Option maybe?). The Band ended up staying in S.F. for a few days, or maybe a week. They were totally great hippy type punks who played a twisted, circus like sounding psychedelic thrashcore. It doesn't really sound like anything else out there, its fast as hell, but also weird as a mofo, and snotty as hell.
This is for sure an obscure punk 7" ep, that might not mean much to many punks, but it congers up great memories for me. Enjoy, and comment.

  5. Post-Revenge Of The Whores...Thrashead gave me a cdr of their demo (which is like 38 songs, he got it FROM them back in the day and it sounds like shit still), which is hiding somewhere on Damaging Noise. Just do a search for ROTW and UPS will show.

  11. OMG, I used to own this record. I bought it because they'd submitted a hell of a good writeup about themselves to MRR. I didn't think the record was any good, though. My friends gave me all kinds of shit for buying it...
