More Information

Originally formed in the late '80s, the Swingin' Utters brought their own brand of aggressive music to the growing Bay Area punk scene. As well as being classified as a street punk band reminiscent of British '70s bands, Swingin' Utters have increasingly shown themselves to be influenced by traditional American country and folk, as well as Irish and reggae. Soon the Swingin' Utters established their position as the West Coast's most dependable purveyors of gimmick-free punk. The genre is all about nonconformity and youthful aggression and rebelling against all things corporate. Without straying from their proletariat roots and blue-collar attitude, the Utters managed to maintain a nearly impossible level of respect from a culture that generally despises any shifts toward mainstream popularity. Swingin' Utters seem ready to defy the usual aging process that forces most punk bands to become little more than musical points of reference. The original punk revivalists stand undeterred by odds that are surely stacked against them, at least in a commercial sense. Of course, MTV sex-appeal and success on the pop-charts have no correlation to punk rock triumph. No lucrative record deal or marketing tactic could prove victory for the Swingin' Utters. These details are trivial in comparison to what the band possesses: a loyal fan-base of over two decades and a permanent position in the history book of American punk.
