Ut Partners with Reactor to Reissue Back Catalog & Rarities in 2013
Beginning in 2013, UK label Reactor will begin a deluxe reissue series of Ut’s classic albums from the 1980s and ‘90s.
Conviction, In Gut’s House and Griller will be remastered from their original analogue sources. As with Reactor’s Loop reissues, the albums will be released in 2-disc sets with mini-vinyl replica sleeves.
The 1st disc on each release will feature the original LP intact, but given new life through quality remastering. The 2nd disc will feature long deleted EPs, rarities and live sessions — some of which have never been released in any format.
Following the CD series, a limited edition series of vinyl replicas of the original LPs will also be made available.
We are excited to be releasing these fantastic recordings and know it will please fans both old and new.
Expect the first CD set in 2013. More details to follow. - Reactor Press Release

Ut: A No Wave Trio Returns
Jordan Mamone: “It borders on criminal that more postpunk connoisseurs aren’t hip to the jarring No Wave trio Ut.” From the Nov. 1 issue of Time Out NY.
Providence Phoenix Editor’s Pick, 11-10
Jim Macnie: “Dissonance and calamity intermingled in the music of Ut when the New York trio made its splash in the early ’80s. It was a thorny and magnetic blend.”
