Winning Ugly

Austin garage formalists the Ugly Beats, whose members knocked around for years in bygone local bands like Death Valley, the Sir Finks, Gal's Panic, and the Shakewells, release debut Bring on the Beats late next month on Get Hip records, the label run by veteran Pittsburgh mods the Cynics. The Beats debuted last year at the last regular Fuzz Club before DJ Sue relocated to Los Angeles; she passed their demo along to her friends in the Cynics, who liked what they heard at the Uglies' SXSW 04 showcase. "Most of us are huge Cynics fans anyway, so it's a big thrill for me to be on the same label as the band," says guitarist/singer Joe Emery. The quintet offers a preview Oct. 1 at Room 710 with Amplified Heat.
