Viennese Punkband “Z.U.A.“ aka „Zumindest Unguad Aufgfoin“ (in English „at least left a negative impression”) sings in German, English and a local dialect and is not too serious about things. So it’s a bit hard to explain their whole vibe (and humor) in English language. The lyrics are quite traditional Anarcho-Punk: ACAB, Nazis, war, capitalism, patriotism, boozing, depression, self-doubt, bourgeoisy, work, boozing, religion, radical left organizations, revolution and so on. Filled with stupid samples.
Musically they like Hardcore, Grindcore, Crust and use those elements, sometimes they do quite well, but when it’s rough they don’t mind even.
The lazy band worked on this new record for 3 years.
But they spent a lot of time for this record. A studio has been built for the recording at “Wagenplatz Treibstoff” at Eichenstraße, Vienna. A rough mix was recorded in the self-built studio so the drummer has some orientation to record the drums. They hardly finished recording the drums one day before the Wagenplatz had to move because the city had been so nice and sent them to another journey. Another critical fact was that Klappstuhl the drummer burnt his bassfoot with hot water the morning before recording the drums.
Guitar(Kachl) and bass(Spritti) had been recorded at home and the vocals were recorded at the “HOOD” in Burgenland. Rikky Tequilla with the help of ZxUxAx members mixed and mastered everything together when there was time for the project. Which was not so easy because Rikky Tequilla had to struggle against his boss at his working place, to fight for better working condition for him and all the workers in the company. But finally in summer 2022 the mastering was finalized and the audiostuff was sent to Austovinyl.
In the meantime ZxUxAx had been working on the graphic design for the LP because they decided to let Austria Vinyl do only the vinyl and the sleeve. The cover, outside (screen prints and assprints [assprints: on the backside of every cover is an ass printed. Each ass is an original, monotypeprint. There are five different asses, three from the bandmembers, one of Rikki Tequilla and one of The Godmother of Weed]) and inside (collage of the band history) and the lyricsheet had been done by the members of the band. At least printing, gluing, folding and sticking everything together is a long time job for 314 pieces. So it´s DIY to the full!
So here it is, the A side of this vinyl is the new record.
The B side is filled with the greatest hits of the last 15 years of their existence, the quality here is much lower and sometimes goes down as the record moves on, but that’s fine.
Vinyls are red and yellow colours, 314 copies.
The band decided to write down that they’re lazy, but in this case it’s not the truth. It’s a drastic lie. They just want to get the favor also from the pennerpunks and not just the DIY fans or other workingclass punx!
