I first saw these guys over a year ago at a day show that ended up getting crazy and I was five hours late for work the next day and still drunk, but that’s another story. I was blown away by Ultra Maroon. They’re a two-piece out of Tucson featuring Mike on guitar with a big ol’ pedal board and Dicky from the much missed Blacks on drums. That’s it – just drum and guitar. Well, Mike yells some guttural noises on some songs and it’s so damn good. It just makes me want to dance instead of write about it.
