Quocumque Jeceris Stabit by Uzeda

8/10 Daoud 16 July 2019

Uzeda have been around for a long time. The Italian punk band formed in 1987, which makes them about 32. And they sure take their time. ‘Quocumque Jeceris Stabit’ is the fifth album proper they managed in that time. 

Oddly, the band they most remind me of is one of Europe’s other great punk institutions, the Ex (who for the record are 40 this year). Despite their age, neither band is mellow. But they’re not explosive the way punks are expected to be, their intensity comes from writing patient and knotty punk jams filled with brilliant rhythmic interplay. On tracks like ‘Speaker’s Corner’ they show just how good they are at holding tension as long as they see fit, before letting it all out.

The other band Uzeda remind me of is Shellac (who are a paltry 27 years old). This should be no surprise as if you look into the liner notes you will see what Steve Albini is responsible for the production. But it’s also in their minimalism and their incredibly chunky riffs. ‘Blind’ has as much bite as Shellac have ever been able to muster, without the need to do that whiny nerd thing. That’s partly because Giovanna Cacciola is an incredibly compelling vocalist who can just as easily hold a melody as she can make a horrid racket. 

If it is possible for bands to have midlife crises, it doesn’t seem like Uzeda need to worry. At 32, their music is as sure of itself as it’s ever been.
