Those of you who have seen the band live before (and that is definitely their natural environment – those who haven’t definitely need to rectify this as soon as they can) will know how good a band they are and with this single, they have translated the energy and vivacity of their live show onto record.

THE REVIEW

Ultraviolet is an upbeat tune that starts off with a hazy, laid back groove before morphing into a raucous blues stomp that will stick in your head for days and as soon as the vocals kick in, you know you are in for a good time. This is an anthem that is perfect for the summer months, the bluesy feel further adds to the good time involved, particularly the guitar work towards the end of the song before it reaches its finale.

Haight Street is aptly named and is as full of life as the iconic San Francisco landmark it is named after. The song is a simple but extremely effective jaunt that, again, will be stuck in your head for an age and is full of that rousing Raptor charm that we all know.

With summer now in full swing, don’t hesitate and go and check it out now and the upcoming (hopefully) warm months now have an undisputed and sunny soundtrack.

Don’t laugh! It really is a time machine where we revisit our past shows and give you a little heads up on what’s up and coming. Anyway, we have been busy spinning ideas, searching for musicians and getting to know the locals. What a life!

Punk N Poetry, Ledbury Poetry Festival @The Royal British Legion 7 July 2016

Pop artist, Pablo Alto frontman and Underground Revolution promoter John Rose put together a fantastic night of Punk and Poetry for the Ledbury Poetry Festival.  Last year the the Poetry Festival onlookers were treated to Atilla the Stockbroker and John Cooper Clarke; this year the baton was handed to The Underground Revolution. We hosted our own celebration featuring some very charismatic poets pushing the boundaries of our minds and building a fan base all the while, then there were the DIY Punk and Post Punk bands who had some of us doing the pogo.
