I truly don’t know much about THE GUARANTEED UGLY. They were associated with Billy Childish and the Hangman label for a while, and their first album (which I don’t have, yet need to have) came out in 1995 and featured this savage track. They were from the UK, had a couple releases on Sympathy in the US, and pfft – that’s all I know (right now). 

“Fire Escape”, this track, is severe in its use of volume and throat-scraping vocals to invoke a Pretty Things/13th Floor Elevators hybrid gone seriously off the rails. Best listen on your headphones. NSFW.
