UGLY ‘N’ WEIRD has been dedicated to reflecting on the world’s strangest musical artists and artefacts through biographies and featured albums. But now, we’re also looking forward.

Today (22 April 2018), I’m launching a new section devoted to highlighting the work of new artists that have come to my attention. This section, titled ‘Ahead’, will look at those artists who are at the forefront of weird music. Through feature articles – which will take the form of bios, album reviews, live reviews, or a mixture of formats – this is where Ugly ‘n’ Weird casts an ear to the present to better understand the future of musical weirdness.
