Melancholy instrumental trio Dirty Three formed in Melbourne, Australia in 1992, led by classically trained violinist Warren Ellis, who began writing and performing music for art openings and plays and also tenured in the groups Blackeyed Susans, Paranoid, and the Nursing Mothers. After enlisting Blackeyed Susans guitarist Mick Turner and drummer Jim White -- veterans of Melbourne bands ... Read more in Amazon's Dirty Three Store

4.0 out of 5 stars Emotional resonance is not sacrificed to artistry 12 April 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
With 1998's Ocean Songs, Melbourne trio the Dirty Three ditched the slow/fast-soft/loud wild ride aesthetic that characterised much of their work up to Horse Stories in favour of an immediacy directly encapsulating the essence of a particular feeling. Usually - but by no means always - that feeling is an achingly sad sense of longing; and on UFKOKO, the skeletal non-production further lays bare the pathos beating at the heart of the violin/guitar/drums line-up, revealing a decrepit beauty of stirring depth. This release is something of a patchwork affair though - three of UFKUKO's five tracks made up the bonus disc twinned with initial copies of Ocean Songs, while other waves of familiarity surface like half-glimpsed remembrances. 'Mihelko's Arm' reprises the melody of 'Better Get Home Now' from 1995's Dirty Three, presented in the same haunting, naked context in which it was used in the soul-wrenching Nick Cave collaboration, 'Time Jesum Transeuntum Et Non Riverentum', on the Songs In The Key Of X soundtrack. Coincidentally, that's also where you may have heard the swelling, ascending pattern of the 'Three Wheels' midsection; but while these thematic elements recur, both 'Mihelko's Arm' and 'Three Wheels' maintain an independent existence, their motifs as diversely applicable as the feelings of desire, loss and poignancy they embody. The galloping, feverish 'To Aster!' is at something of a counterpoint to the other songs here, boiling over with a shriek of feedback; while 'Cast Adrift' and 'Wish I Could' are two Chicago-recorded out-takes running along Ocean Songs' mournful, meandering lines, the latter's delicate nine minute cycle closing the EP with a subdued elegance. The Dirty Three are quite unlike other groups working with the contemporary instrumental form -- emotional resonance is never sacrificed to cerebral artistry, and self-awareness runs secondary to unbridled self-expression, making UFKUKO an affecting thirty minutes.

5.0 out of 5 stars fantastic stuff 11 Nov 2009
Format:Audio CD
This may be just a 5 track EP, but it packs a punch and leaves you wanting more. It starts off loud and raucous, like the old days of Dirty Three. Guitar heavy for the first couple of tracks. Great news for all who have heard Mick previously. Middle track is almost more like a Tren Brothers effort with its loopiness. And then it finishes off with two absolutely beautiful tracks, very much in the vibe of Ocean Songs. Fantastic little gem in my collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars How do they do it ? 22 Aug 1999
By Louise Jensen - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
They've done it again...turned me over completely. My first D3 album was Sad And Dangerous and since then I've bought everuthing they've made. But the beauty and violence in those tunes still surprise me. I still ask myself "How do they do that?" Ufkuko, I think, contains a little bit of everything they've done through the years. The noise from the first years to the sea on their latest. If you're new to Dirty Three Ufkuko would be a good start for you. It is what Dirty Three is: Brilliant !
