1986, a couple of days before the end of the year. A band from no one heard of before stepped onto a small stage in their hometown Utrecht, The Netherlands, during a small festival and blew everyone in the room away. They called themselves Urban Dance Squad. That night brought about a whole new sound and style in music no one ever heard before. It would change the way people listen to music forever. Some people called their music Rock, others heard more of Hip Hop and Funk, another group of people heard Ska rhythms or even Heavy Metal, Grunge and Rock & Roll. One thing is for sure, there would never be such a crossover band as this group of extraordinary guys giving it their all and bringing together such a diverse group of fans into one room. Strangely enough Urban Dance Squad was over-looked by the media. Even though they had a growing and faithful fan-base, they weren’t able to take their music to the next level. It is not like they didn’t do everything they could to make it work! Touring in Europe and the US, getting raving reviews. Some of their songs were used in Big Motion Pictures, and appear on several soundtracks. The world wasnít ready for them is the only plausible conclusion. Years after UDS recorded their first album, bands like Fishbone, Red Hot Chili Peppers and Rage against the Machine emerged. Openly admitting their inspiration source being UDS.

The second UDS album came just year after their debut. Recorded in the US, it equally brutal and loud. UDS are in a relentless mode and carry on touring during this period. The musical and lyrical combinations made on this album are again surprising, with e.g. turntablism vs. country guitar playing and effortless style switches on “Careless” and “(Thru) the Gates of the Big Fruit”. This re-release also includes a live album, recorded in Tokyo, and the same as with the reissue of the debut album this recording let’s you experience the power and impact of UDS all over again.
