Too Much Rock Singles Series

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.
