Ugly Stick: Cowtown Punk

Feature article about the Columbus, Ohio band Ugly Stick, from Ghettoblaster. "There's a certain joy that comes from not knowing what you're doing. You tend to ignore certain respectable, limiting rules of genre. That's what you hear in Ugly Stick's earliest music, and though they grew much more capable and even subtle—see 1993's seminal Absinthe or their most recent album, Still Glistening—Ugly Stick has never lost touch with the exhilarating terror of that first contact with adulthood, its freedom and danger, and the pleasure of doing things their way, tags be damned."
