Ultras S/C Debut “1417 Roberts Ave” Video

Picture 35You may have heard of this band before, whether it’s the write up I gave them about a year ago or you might just know the people in the band. The Ultras S/C is made up of ex-Be Your Own Pet frontwoman Jemina Pearl, Jack White’s bitch boy Ben Swank and some dude name Chet Weise. Despite the negative connotations that are associated with the former two, I really tried to give this band a chance. See, despite popular belief, I do like a comeback story a lot or being proven wrong occasionally. However, neither usually happens and this band is beginning to seem like a case of that. While I really did dig the first single they put out, everything I’ve heard since then has been pretty meh. Plus, the one live show I went to before Jemina went full blown preggers was painful. They say you’re only as good as your drummer, but with Swank fucking up a bunch during their set along with some other technical difficulties that weren’t really the band’s fault, I couldn’t stand it. The new tune isn’t bad, but it’s not great; it just isn’t something I’m rushing to get more of, ya know? I’ll wait for more tunes before I nail the final nail in, but words of advice, kids: it better be damn good from here on out. Check out the video on Noisey below.

    it sounds just like be your own pet! haha. but with a less interesting guitar player and a bad drummer. the old BYOP drummer put this guy to shame at drums. i bet he feels silly that a little 23 year old who used to “do” his woman can out drum him like a muthhhhhafuckkaaaaaa, but hey he’s friends with jack white right? that makes his music good….right?

    sounds to me like a band that doesn’t want to be commercialized. wants to have fun. I could party with it. obviously pretty talented. what garage bands exist in nashville tn? personal grudges for pre recession era happenings shouldn’t be applied to opinion replies.

      All of the jive shit they’ve done MUSICALLY has been post-recession (Pearl’s solo album, Swank’s involvement of putting out records via TMR). No personal grudges here.
