Click Here To Listen To Our UJ3RK5 Episode

Back in the dark recesses of the Vancouver nightlife, there once lived a post-punk spastic collection of artists called U-J3RK5. Steve and Doug try to make sense of it all. **Retraction! It appears that UJ3RK5 was not affiliated with the soundtrack of the film Big Meateater. We’ve tried to remove all reference to the film in this episode, but if there are any more, we apologize. Please disregard.
