UGLY KID JOE JOIN THE SWEDEN ROCK 2012 LINE UP!
The jolly boys of the 90’s! Ugly Kid Joe (the name is intended as the ”opposite” of Pretty Boy Floyd) were an immediate success with their debut single ”Everything about you” in 1992.
Singer Whitfield Crane announced, with great humor, that he hated absolutely everything and the song became a smash hit. The subsequent album ”America’s least wanted” was dominated by glam-tinted, raunchy hard rock, except for ”Cat’s in the cradle”. Said ballad and Harry Chapin-cover was a huge hit, in retrospect one of the 90s’ most recognizable songs.
Sadly, Ugly Kid Joe were somewhat dismissed by the less than humor-friendly prevailing movements. The next two albums sold poorly and the band folded. However, they have since achieved cult-status with a new generation, and now they have finally reunited: Whitfield Crane, guitarists Klaus Eichstadt and Dave Fortman, bassist Cordell Crockett and drummer Shannon Larkin – Ugly Kid Joe.
