Urusei Yatsura’s “Hello, Tiger”

Urusei Yatsura was a Scottish band that started in 1993 and broke up in 2001.  Three of the four band members went on to form Projekt A-ko, and the style of music hasn’t really changed throughout their years together.  The bands played and play a lo-fi noise rock that sounds, to put it simply, like a poppier Pavement with a hint of the Pixies.  There is a stronger sense of melody in most of these songs than in your typical power chord garage rock, and it certainly made the band stand out for me.  This is my favorite song by UY, it’s called Hello, Tiger” and it is excellent.
