SOME MUSIC INSPIRES with its beauty. Some music comforts you in times of sadness, the poignantly expressed melancholy of others providing a salve for your own gloom. Some music gets you excited, its ebullient energy pumping you up before a big sports event or night out on the town.

But some music is weird. Ugly and weird. It doesn’t do what you expect music to do. It freaks you out, makes you feel uncomfortable, irritates you, maybe even repulses you.

This site was created to document the bizarre, absurd, grotesque, but always entertaining world of Ugly ‘n’ Weird music. It will detail the histories of its most important contributors in artist biographies and feature reviews of their key albums.

For more on what Ugly ‘n’ Weird is all about, try the imaginatively titled About page.
