UJ3Rk5


UJ3RK5 (pronounced "you jerks") was a Vancouver-based band from the late 1970s. Their style was owing to new wave, but was more art rock than synth pop.

UJ3RK5 (pronounced "you jerks") was a Vancouver-based band from the late 1970s. Their style was owing to new wave, but was more art rock than synth pop. UJ3RK5's short-lived local success was influenced by the music industry's infatuation with Martha and the Muffins-styled male-female bands. The band was founded by local artist celebrities Ian Wallace, Jeff Wall, Rodney Graham, and CBC Radio host David Wisdom among others, and their eponymous debut album, portraying the pioneers of Vancouver's school of so-called 'photoconceptualism' or 'post-conceptual photography' in a rare moment of unison, sported an unlikely hit single titled "Eisenhower and the Hippies" - a song allegedly inspired by the work of American conceptual art proponent Dan Graham. The band was a rather short-lived affair, allowing the members to concentrate on their art careers instead. Oh Canaduh! Vol 2 featured 2 covers of UJ3RK5.

"Eisenhower and the Hippies" was covered by Man or Astro-man? and "Locator" was covered by Servotron. (http://wikipedia.net) Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply..
