The Universal Togetherness Band’s modern renaissance would have been impossible were it not for one crucial event—the group’s appearance on Episode 21 of The Chicago Party. These small steps onto the CopHerBox II’s illuminated dance floor translated into giant leaps for band-kind. For it was this very performance that ignited our own obsession with the undocumented quintet. For Universal Togetherness Band freaks/aficionados, there is one track that is not available on their self-titled LP, nor does it appear on either side of their infectious 45. That song is “Pull Up,” which Pitchfork described as “nearly tone def.” As if that’s a bad thing! It was this very loose-clutch quality that led us to believe that the Universal Togetherness Band might have been on to something special back in 1982. So if you want in on some of this action, you’re gonna have to pick up our tribute to 1982’s official place to be… Ultra-High Frequencies: The Chicago Party.
