The Takeover UK

Usually, bands take on the prefix "UK" when there's an actual need for it -- differentiating the Mission UK from the Philly soul band of the same name, for instance -- but for Pittsburgh born the Takeover UK, it seems as if it were done out of a desire for "cool" or "cred." Eventually pulling up stakes and taking the melange of '60s tinged sounds coupled with late-'70s punk rock to New York, the Takeover UK soon released a debut EP, It's All Happening on Rykodisc. Released in the summer of 2008, the EP was merely a warm-up for the band's first full-length effort, Running with the Wasters, due in the fall of that same year. ~ Chris True
