Biography

There are three bands (just keeps growing, apparently) which go by the name ‘The Universal’:

#1. The Universal is a psychedelic space-rock band from Boise, ID. Formed in 2004. Currently promoting their 2009 full length “Everything Is Everywhere” for sale at http://www.universalgalaxies.com

#2. The Universal is a band originally from Geelong, but considering the town’s general lack of forward movement, they are now also based around Melbourne. Guitarists Evan Jones and Blair Hall, along with bassist Cameron Urquhart have a fair history of musical involvement stretching back to much more boring school times, and so the band began from these three chaps playing together. In a Spinal Tap-like run of terrible luck with drummers, the Universal had been unable to hold down a permanent fourth member in the early part of its life (running through three in about 5 months) until Isaac Bradbury arrived, all tall and bespectacled and ready to break the horrible curse. It should be noted that, though he has survived for almost a year now, it is possible the curse is lying dormant, ready to strike at any time, so interested drummers should be on stand by.

The band plays music in the indie rock style, which is popular with today’s youth. The sound could be described as coming from the British school of alternative rock, with jangly, angular guitars and energetic beats. There have been comparisons to bands like Arctic Monkeys and the Strokes, but that’s too flattering, so don’t be ridiculous.
