UXB – Crazy Today / Mr. Fixit 7″


I got a feeling that Peter doesn’t like this one, but we’ve never talked about it so I might be wrong. No matter what I like it a lot! Great melodic punk with the entire band pushing the songs forward in a confident way. And a great guitar tone as well, dry and thick in the vein of the better sounding USHC acts. The flip, Mr. Fixit, reminds me an ever so little bit of the Suicide Commandos LP for some reason. Both songs are equally great in my opinion and I don’t know why this one ain’t more talked about.

    Nice choice! Both songs are great to my ears, but especially the guitar crunch on Mr. Fix It. This 7″ was reissued in the early 2000’s around the same time they were comped on one of the Bored Teenagers v.2 comp LP.

    There are some unreleased UXB songs that saw the light of day in the early 2000’s as well- some are just OK but others like “Imagination” are very catchy:

    link for “Crazy Today” is broken? (right-click as the ‘save link as’ option is unavailable).

    The B-side is cool though!
