Since the early 90’s, hell man, the Swingin’ Utters have been the shit. Beyond cool, a little scary, and dripping with talent. After the Dead Flowers record in 2003, the band took time to have families, pursue different bands and while always being somewhat active, there was definitely a lull. 2010 saw the band returning with two new 7”s and a ton of touring, with a full length released in 2011 titled Here, Under Protest. And now, the band is currently in the studio recording ANOTHER album! It is safe to say the band has returned with more than a little gusto. We’re talking about Darius Koski, who’s been writing like a madman, a permanent new bass player, Miles Peck, singer Johnny Bonnel, who has his own design and silk screening business, drummer Greg McEntee, and then there’s the addition of Jack Dalrymple! Remember him from One Man Army, Dead To Me? Yeah, well he’s been in the band for years now, but writing for the band for the first time! Swingin’ Utters, if you have any coolness in you, should be one of your favorite bands. If not, pick up their records here and get ready for a new 7” this Fall and a new full length early next year. Read this in-studio interview with Darius, and watch the in studio video below!
