Ugly Ugly Ugly EP

Released by Rim of Hell Records in 1988, this 4 track 7" EP contains Birthday Party/Laughing Clowns moments of poorly recorded (side a) and above average (side b) inspired(?) Australian post, post-punk.

1. Living in a Sponge
2. Bye

3. The Princess and the Bicycle Thief
4. Pride

Chris Spencer's oft-inaccurate, yet essential Who's Who of Australian Rock describes them as "New Wave pop, Cabaret, Jazz Funk" - and in that order. Ugly Ugly Ugly existed between 1986 and 1990.

Regardless of who they are or are not - because no-one seems to know anyway, this is essential listening and a nice curve-ball for your mixtape, portable playing device or similar.
