Full Ugly is primarily a vehicle for the song writing of one Melbourne native, Nathan Burgess. Thomas Mendelovits, of long-time Melbourne outfit Milk Teddy, joined after seeing Nathan play an acoustic set with lead guitarist and old school mate Michael Caterer (Shorts, Scott & Charlene's Wedding, Love Connection). After a few three-piece shows, Zach Schneider (Great Outdoors, Totally Mild) approached the band and offered to round out the line-up as a four-piece, affording Burgess's almost naïve country-rock sensibility a more exploratory feel. Today, Nathan McFarlane provides lead guitar since Caterer's relocation to New York with Scott & Charlene's Wedding. Spent the Afternoon was recorded and mixed by Jack Farley (Twerps, Panel of Judges, Beaches) at Transient Studios mid-2011.

8/10 Mike Staff review, 25 July 2014

Here's an LP from the questionably-monikered Full Ugly, the brainchild of Melbourne singer-songwriter Nathan Burgess, who was previously linked to Michael "Scott & Charlene's Wedding" Caterer before he upped sticks and moved to the Big Apple.
It should come as no surprise that 'Spent The Afternoon' is a collection of laid back, personable indie-pop that mixes S&CW's classic Aussie shamble with a sun-kissed slacker pop haze of bands like Triptides or Real Estate. Right from the start the songs have a shimmering, jangling warmth that's as welcoming as a nicely-worn-in pair of trainers. The vocals are faltering and naive, giving a nicely human quality to the big pop hooks Burgess keeps throwing out.

If you're into your classic jangle-rock from down under then you could do worse than giving this guy a go.
