The Unit Ama make music that explodes outward: dense but soothing metronomic pulses morph into a wild fracturing of the traditional rock trio, taking the possibilities of what can be done with guitar, bass, drums and vocals into the stratosphere. Whereas others have saught to push the limits of rock music by intense complication and trickery, The Unit Ama's approach is natural, human, shamanic even. In addition to appearances on a number of compilations, The Unit Ama's songs have found a life of their own through the bands self-released variations series. This is not anthemic, easy listening, but something far more challenging and ultimately, rewarding. Members of The Unit Ama have played in bands such as Crane, Kodiak and Month of Birthdays. They have toured with Lungfish and also played with the likes of Hoover, Hot Snakes, Sunburned Hand of the Man, Erase Errata, Fugazi, Chicago Underground Duo, Lightning Bolt, Zu and many others. They have recently returned to playing live after a lengthy hiatus.
