Ahh, angular art punk. Listening to this album made me want to seek out a bit of X-Ray Spex, Bow Wow Wow or Lene Lovich. Not that they sound exactly like any of those bands/artists, it’s just something about certain songs reminded me of that quirky screechy singing that both employ. But, then the next minute they have a riff that makes me think of Black Sabbath. Also, the band actually has an explanation of how to say the name on their web site.  http://www.uuvvwwz.com/
