Many of you may know Paul McGregor as a footballer, the striker of Nottingham Forest and not as “Honey“, the singer of Ulterior. The band is out there since 2006 and has a considerably interesting CV. With only one single on release, they have supported The Horrors at the Schockwaves NME Awards back in 2008 and toured all over Europe supporting the Sisters of Mercy, getting the credibility from the goth community.
Their music, heavily based on synths, cannot be clearly described as EBM although it must be highly appreciated by dj’s. Scattered guitar riffs give a good sense of industrial and post-punk and offer a nice musical field to Honey’s steady and solid vocals. “Psychic Chic” is a good example of dark dance inferno and “Body Hammer” teaches how post-punk should be performed in the 21st century. Only two reasons out of ten not to ignore “The Bleach Room“.
