Uppercut- Live On WNYU
Here is the Uppercut set from when they played on WNYU.
Uppercut was a late 80's hardcore band from New York City. They had a harder sound, similar to bands like Outburst or Raw Deal. Besides this set, there is a demo, songs on the New York Hardcore: Where The Wild Things Are comp and a 12". The band is noted for the song 'Am I Clear?', which is a great song, but didn't exactly agree with the giant straight edge scene of the time. I will upload the demo at a later date, but the 12" was rereleased on Blackout Records a few years ago.
I think this is a great overview of the Uppercut material. The songs sound more urgent than on the 12" and sound a bit better than the ones on the demo. The demo and 12" are great though.
I hope you enjoy the music!
