Will You Listen!



I've started a little side blog...Ulysses Speaks! It exists for one purpose and one purpose only - to document the zine released by the Nation of Ulysses back in the early 90's. I've posted three issues so far, and more will follow.

The members of the band included: Ian Svenonius (vocals), Steve Kroner (occasional guitar), Tim Green (guitar), Steve Gamboa (bass) and James Canty (drums).

The band members have gone on to other things, including but not limited to the following list:

Cupid Car Club
The Make-Up (Again)
Weird War/Scene Creamers
French Toast

I'm not going to speak much about the zines themselves. They are what they are. Take them for what they are worth - and nothing more.

Personally, I believe it was all meant as a overbearing erudite joke - not to be taken literally, but rather as a means of opening up communication.

GET THE TAN WITHOUT THE BURN!

The Nation of Ulysses - Cool Senior High School (Fight Song) REMOVED

The Nation of Ulysses - Diptheria REMOVED


Of all of the punk bands from this era, NOU were where it was at. The sound, the image, the ideals (yeehah!)...all made a package that was sweet and crunchy and bit back enough to make your mouth bleed.

Most of their full length releases can be purchased through Dischord Records. Buy! Buy! Buy!
