A few select songs


U.W.O is a fresh take on punk-rock with a rough bass that guides the band, hard and playful drums, and a guitar that keeps it funky. They're heavily influenced by Primus, Red Hot Chili Peppers, and NoMeansNo.

Started out in 1998 as a Primus cover band by Erik Tapper on bass and vocals, Fredrik Hallqvist on drums and Jonas Arvidsson on guitar later matured into U.W.Os unique sound and original songs. Shortly after the release of the first album "A grand neck-tie party", Jonas left U.W.O and a new guitarist was hired; Johan Borgström. Johans funky guitar set a new sound for the band and together they released "If you ain't deaf yet you damn well should be" and "Smile!". In 2015 Johan left the band, and Jesper Hermansson was hired as the new U.W.O guitarist.

U.W.O recently released the EP King A, and is working on a second EP right now!
