Last night The Uncouth! launched Volume 4 of the
the Too Much Rock Singles Series with a last minute show
at The Sandbox. The single's A-side is an anthemic, old-school
call for unity between the punk and skinhead scenes, and
celebrates KC's rich history. The B-side features a powerful take
of Slade's 1972 smash "Gudbuy T'Jane" that retains all the glam
stomp of the original. As always, I have no copies, so pick them
up directly from the band.
