Ultraxine are: Kate (guitar and vocals) & Taz (bass and vocals).
Ultraxine are a female-fronted, harmony driven pop/punk/rock duo based in Leeds. Kate and Taz have been writing songs together for years, but in 2007 they decided they wanted to record an album...so in May 2008 they 'borrowed' drummer-friend Rick Steckles and headed down to Barnroom Studios in Kent to work with Bernie Torme of GMT and ex-Gillan fame to produce their debut album "Taking Sweets From Strangers". All the instrument tracks on the album were recorded live, aided only by copious amounts of tea. The album came out on Monday December 1st 2008, and is available to buy through the band website (ultraxine.com) or MySpace (myspace.com/ultraxine). Alternatively it is available to download from I-Tunes, Amazon, eMusic, Napster of Rhapsody.
Kate and Taz are now writing some new material and planning some acoustic gigs. If you would like to book the band, or get a copy of the album to review then please get in touch via the email address at the bottom of the page.
They are also currently looking for a permanent drummer to fill the now vacant drum stool. If you are interested in being our drummer, please have a listen to some of our songs - available at http://www.myspace.com/ultraxine and then drop us an e-mail - firstname.lastname@example.org.
