URGH! was a band active in Belgrade, Serbia, from 1991 to 2001. During a decade of their existence, they displayed an impressive ability to change their musical direction and merge various genres in their output.The band kicked-off as grindcore quartet and achieved relative fame when a video for their song Paradise Town got aired on the first national channel. It was a big thing back in the day, since Serbia had only three TV-channels.
The first “real” release was a split tape with P.M.S. in 1992 called Yonuss Tape. Although not a first band from Belgrade to play grindcore, URGH! managed to approach a wider audience with their sound. Searching for a new musical identity ensued, leading to another two cassette releases: 9194 and Unplugged. While former blended grindcore with all sorts of musical directions in a perplexing cacophony, the latter offered a mellow side of same songs including orchestrations with violin, accordion and toys. Until 1997 URGH! stabilized in a sort of post-core/noise sound and released Oesophagus. The song Kratko & Jasno, boosted by a furious video, became band’s most recognizable song. In 1999 URGH! re-recorded some old songs and complied a “best of” release. Planned to be band’s first CD, 120% never saw light of the day because band’s then-publisher B92 got taken over by the regime and CD destroyed along with some other releases. By 2000 URGH! has become a trio and recorded Sumo, their last album to date, released in 2001. The album was built upon samples and loops instead of live drums and spawned a minor hit “Kašika, viljuška, nož” using lyrics of an old children’s song.
As of March 2009 URGH! is preparing a new album for 2010.
