PRESS FOR LAST ULYSSES ALBUM 'EVERYBODY'S STRANGE' 2011:
CLASSIC ROCK MAGAZINE - THE 100 BEST SONGS OF THE YEAR 2011 - 'EYE ON YOU' by ULYSSES: "Astonishingly well-observed resurrection of late-period psychedelia party anthems pomped up through a glam-rock filter and expanded beyond decency and reason. Turns out the beige [Er, I think you mean 'golden' - Ed.] city of Bath is a hotbed of wham-glam-thank-you-ma'am Technicolor psychedelia. Well, it is if Eye On You is anything to go by. The glam revival starts here. Find it on 'Everybody's Strange' album out on iTunes now."
CLASSIC ROCK MAGAZINE - THE 100 BEST SONGS OF THE YEAR 2011 - JAN 2012 Issue
"The uncool 70s: the pre-punk, pre-disco period of cheesy glam and naff Top of the Pops hits like a harder, more metal Denim: Denim meet the Darkness, if you will. Think a more stylised, 70s obsessed Supergrass or Super Furry Animals. The moronic infectiousness of all the best early-70s pop with the musicianly focus of rock. We're not sure what's in the Bath water, but we'd like a dip. File next to: Denim, Roy Wood, the Sweet, the Darkness. In another era Everybody's Strange would be a platinum-selling album and Ulysses would be packing stadiums".
PAUL LESTER - THE GUARDIAN - JUNE 2011
"Bananas Glitterball Glam meets Psych on the brown acid!
It's The Stones meets The Glitter Band!
There is definitely no Bristol band that can cram as many hooks into one song as these boys."
SEAN COOK (SPIRITUALIZED / ELIZABETH FRAZER)
"If Danny The Dealer from Withnail And I had a favourite band, it would be Ulysses. And when I say that, I mean it as the highest of compliments.
Listening to them, I am sometimes put in mind of what the White Stripes might have sounded like if they'd lived in the Notting Hill of Performance and learned how to properly let their hair down; at other times, a Super Furry Animals less afraid of drinking from rock's Loving Cup, or a Thin Lizzy branching out to scare their central construction worker demographic. This is a band who take the best of turn-of-the-sixties swagger, spiritualism and darkness and condense it with a kind of winning self-awareness that you might expect from the likes of The Black Crowes or Urge Overkill at their peak, but would normally seem hugely overoptimistic to ask for from a British group in 2011.
That they are without a lavish record deal at this very minute is more than just 'upsetting' or 'a sign of the times'; it is a downright affront to nature."
