UFOFBI, the Woolen Men, Spookies

[BEYONDER ROCK] The confluence of sucrose confections and scuzzy uncaring is this bill’s hallmark. Stockholm’s UFOFBI skirts the No Wave tag, but just barely. Tracks from the group’s Dreamtrash Dreamtrash tape, being issued through Peter Larsson’s imprint, still sound like the trio might occasionally beat the shit out of a garbage can for inspiration. But a pop proclivity shoots through the songs, matching them well with locals Woolen Men and Spookies, that pair celebrating the release of a split single tonight. And despite the latter ensemble counting a few dudes from the Shaky Hands, there’s a rough-hewn garage sound emanating from this new troupe. Larsson’s film works are scheduled to accompany the performance.
