Symptom

The long out-of-print first pressings of this record were so raw and vicious that even our jaded ears were damaged. Still, even after remastering, repackaging, and repressing this three-song coup d’etat for an unsuspecting public, this EP remains the frantic and fucked-up work of art that propelled UOA into the basements of America’s disenfranchised youth and, eventually, into the Kill Rock Stars stable – which probably worked out okay for us. We’re still getting over this one. (Also available as part of Jade Tree’s retrospective CD, The First Five Years (JT1050)
