about

The Ug Brothers were a heavy funk and rock band from Exeter, UK, that lasted for a short time in 1986 and then had a longer and more successful existence that began in the early summer of 1994 and continued until the late autumn of the following year. During that time The Ug Brothers became known throughout various parts of Europe for their activities, musical and otherwise. The Ug Brothers were akin to a wandering stag party of japesome hellraisers, or perhaps some kind of non-stop whirlwind of craziness, and in other ways they were simply a very good live band.

Cute But Weird, titled by His Grahamship, is the one and only studio album of The Ug Brothers. It was recorded in the spring of 1995 at Cliff and Graham’s huge flat directly above McCoy's Arcade, Fore Street, Exeter.

Cute But Weird was recorded, engineered, mixed and produced by George using some old gear and some borrowed gear from Custard the Cat's boutique downstairs. It has a much more refined sound than the raw power of the band’s live performances.

Released on 28th May 1995, Cute But Weird proved itself to be popular in the UK, Poland, The Czech Republic and Germany.

This album has been scheduled for full digital remastering, and we shall publish news of developments in the Wud Records ‘News’ service.

Track Name: White Water
WHITE WATER
The time of your life, the time to remember
The adrenalin flashback, all the friends in the spaces
It’s getting hard to recollect all those different faces
I think I’ll go and hit me a little white water

Through the light years a second’s existence
Orbital lives transcend through persistence
See the white water in your personal wave
Riding the colours you’re nobody’s slave

The cause and effect, synchronous chances
A light in the dark, all those mystic romances
It’s getting hard to navigate all those different spaces
I think I’ll live floating deep in the white water

Through the light years a second’s existence
Orbital lives transcend through persistence
See the white water in your personal wave
Riding the colours you’re nobody’s slave

The safest bet in the long run, a walk on the right path
The illusion’s test, the game in the flightpath
A razor’s edge in real time, all those different choices
I think I’ll choose to flow with the white water

Through the light years a second’s existence
Orbital lives transcend through persistence
See the white water in your personal wave
Riding the colours you’re nobody’s slave

Track Name: Spin Gone Crazy
SPIN GONE CRAZY
Always on the outside I’m working on the inside
Always on the outside I’m focused and free
A taste for freedom will beat the system
I’m focused and free

A force for freedom feeling good in my veins
I’m cutting loose from the city
I’m cutting my chains

Always on the outside I’m working on the inside
Always on the outside I’m focused and free
Lives keep on changing it’s synchronicity
It’s something so natural
Life and love are free

Spinning of the wheel getting faster and faster
Get out onto the road and ride into the future

A force for freedom feeling good in my veins
I’m cutting out the conflict
I’m cutting my chains

Always on the outside I’m working on the inside
Always on the outside I’m focused and free
Going through the changes
Watching you watching me
It’s something so natural
Life and love are free

I feel the wheels turning round and round and round
I hear the engine howling
I feel the wind on my face
Shiny metal in the hot summer sun
Flashing lights through the trees
Watching people wondering why
Burning rubber in the haze
Spin gone crazy

Track Name: Lookout
LOOKOUT
Eye to eye
Station to station
Face to face
Nation to nation
Head to head
One on one
Heart to heart
All or none

Looking at me looking at you
We see each other’s points of view
In each other’s ways on each other’s face
A moment’s harmony a touch of grace

Falling for the fantasies
I can see behind your eyes
Reaching out and touching me
Smiling with your mind
Looking out and looking back
The feelings deep inside
Your mystery is plain to see
Too late to run and hide

Eye to eye
Station to station
Face to face
Nation to nation
Head to head
One on one
Heart to heart
All or none

Face to face we come in view
Eye to eye me touches you
A smile exchanged a remembered face
A chance to dream of days of grace

Falling for the fantasy
I can see behind your eyes
Reaching in and touching me
Smiling with your mind
Looking out and looking back
Cutting to the chase
A chance to dream eternally
Of perfect days of grace

Track Name: What Is It?
WHAT IS IT?
Move on up
What is it
Will you stay on line
What is it
Will you stay in time
What is it
Clearly defined
This is it
Every time

Move on up keep a smile on your face
Turning the dial setting the pace
Taking life easy fitting into the plan
Giving it all just to understand

What is it
What is it
What is it

Move on up
What is it
Are we you or me
What is it
Can you be set free
What is it
Easy destiny
This is it
Every time

One more step to open the door
Step right through to the inner core
Keep on moving take it right to the top
Feel it coming there’s no time to stop

All that you believe in is here and now
And all that you are feeling is under your control
Every little piece of all experience is living
Every possibility of anything is now
Take a look around you and anything can happen
If you want to map it out start thinking in a pattern
Just keep a cool head on the razor’s edge and anything is yours
Monkey see, monkey get

Here it is a simple pleasure
Keep pushing through just to be together
A living experience on higher ground
A healing feeling, live it up, get down

What is it
What is it
What is it
This is it

Gotta move it on up
Gotta move it on up

Track Name: Wibble and Bling
WIBBLE AND BLING
It’s just in my nature to get a little deeper
It’s in all the people all the time
We get a little deeper and go and hit the beach
And on the sands we sit and drink the wine
It’s just in my nature to get a little deeper
It’s in all the people all the time
Keep the fire going til the daylight comes
Keep the music flowing like the wine

Music loving feeling nature reason sunshine sky
Music loving feeling nature reason sunshine sky

We’re at home with nature, it gets a little deeper
We’re all here together getting high
Happy making memories we share our thoughts around
Good times just get better
Pass the wine
We’re at home with nature, it gets a little deeper
We’re all here together getting high
Keep that feeling moving round and round forever
Keep the fire going through the night

Drifting through the years
That day keeps coming by
Telling me it’s here

Music loving feeling nature reason sunshine sky
Music loving feeling nature reason sunshine sky
Music loving feeling nature reason sunshine sky
Music loving feeling nature reason sunshine sky

It’s just in my nature to get a little deeper

Track Name: Lifetime
LIFETIME
Words can tell me some things but there’s much more to say
You can’t catch your freedom but you can give it away
Here’s a moment’s creation
Here’s a billion people
Here’s a child in my arms
Here’s another day
Once in every lifetime for every experience
For everything

You and me we’re a paradox
We could be total strangers
And the grey ones among us are strangers to us all
You and me as people
We’re all one big heartbeat
Between the good and the evil
We’re all the same wall
Social inter-harmony
Racial co-existence
Reflections of each other make up all our ways

Words can tell us some things but there’s much more can be said
It’s all a case of freedom
Never throw it away
Here’s a new emotion
Here’s a reason to stay
Here’s my heart’s resolution
Here’s the way
Once in every lifetime for every experience
You can do what you want
But do you really want what you do?

Track Name: Take Me Up
TAKE ME UP
Was that a smile in your eyes
I think I saw it while you were talking
So let’s get down to feeling good
Come on man that’s real good

Take me up to
Take me up to the place I love
Take me up to
Take me up to the place I

Night life laser lights any time anywhere
How’s it going put it there
We’ll be dancing in the air
Wide eyed wolf-like sometimes starry-eyed
Looking out to hit looking out to hide
Searching for a thing that we ain’t tried

There are things that take you up
There are things that bring you down
And there are things that get you high
It’s right here in the sound

Take me up to
Take me up to the place I love
Take me up to
Take me up to the place I

Night life laser lights any time anywhere
How’s it going put it there
We’ll be dancing in the air
Wide eyed wolf-like sometimes starry-eyed
Looking out to hit looking out to hide
Searching for a thing that we ain’t tried

Take me up to
Take me up to the place I love
Take me up to
Take me up to the place I love
Take me up to
Take me up to the place I love
Take me up to
Take me up to the place

I don’t wanna feel sad
Don’t wanna feel bad
Just wanna have some fun
Just wanna see you come to the show

I know this is the one for me
I know this is the one for me
I know this is the one for me
I know this is the one for me

The light shines on
The light shines on
The light shines on
The light shines on

Track Name: Shake Yer Brother
SHAKE YER BROTHER
Taking time as it comes
You ain’t taking it on the run
There’s sure to be friends
You’ve gotta take care until the end
Too many freak-outs to be reconciled
So calm the inner voices of your mind
Remember the trust of a child

Shake yer brother shake yer sister
Shake yer brother shake yer sister
Shake yer brother shake yer sister
Shake yer brother shake yer sister

What could be better than the love of your friends
What could be better than the love of your friends
What could be better than the love of your friends
What could be better than the love of your friends

Shake yer brother shake yer sister
Shake yer brother shake yer sister
Shake yer brother shake yer sister
Shake yer brother shake yer sister

All of us are each other
So please don’t hurt me brother
Put some peace into this world
Be careful with your mind
Let’s stick together now and forever
Throughout these empty nights
We’ll be together to defend our rights
Look up into the light

Shake yer brother shake yer sister
Shake yer brother shake yer sister
Shake yer brother shake yer sister
Shake yer brother shake yer sister
