ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
''I enjoyed it. A real cool sensibility.'' --John Darnielle, MOUNTAIN GOATS
''I just listened to the mp3 of 'I Can't Tell You What I've
Found,' which I liked a lot''--Kurt Andersen, host of NPR's ''Studio 360''

Ultraviolet Eye began when singer/guitarist Jeff Charreaux and bassist/piccoloist Roy Appleman met in Amsterdam. They did some early recording there and thought up the band name while playing Lou Reed and Hank Williams songs in the train station.
The two set up Californium Records in San Francisco and self-released two Ultraviolet Eye EP's--one which was Record of the Week on Belgium National Radio. A label in Madrid, Demolition/Munster also released a third EP. The band has played live shows along the west coast and recorded with with different drummers--including Victor Indrizzo (Beck, Liz Phair) and Ty Dennis (The Doors of the 21st Century). They have appeared along side bands such as Sonic Youth, The Devics, The Mountain Goats, Beck live or on compilations. Ultraviolet Eye also composed soundtracks and songs for student film projects at Cal Arts, San Francisco Institute of Art, Loyola Marymount and Art Center.

They finally have finished a song cyle CD inspired by Michel Houllebecq's novel, PLATFORM.

"The best song about drugs, John Peel and America...'Heroin Geek' by Ultraviolet Eye"-BOSTON PHOENIX

"Clashy punk anthems and flashy goof gleaned from Zappa perhaps."-THE ALTERNATIVE PRESS

"The songwriting's more rooted in later Lennon/McCartney psychedelia with powerful vocals and mind-bending production."-FLIPSIDE

"You may be surprised at how numbers like these...gnaw away at your consciousness with a refreshing tenacity."-New Times

"No wonder John Peel played their 7 inchers before anyone else had heard of them." -NME
