Garage rockers Ugly Kid Joe will be in Norfolk next week when their European tour rolls into Norwich.

Best known for their hits Everything About You and a cover of Cat’s In The Cradle, they’ll be at Epic Studios on Tuesday, May 31.

Back in the early-1990s, their As Ugly As They Wanna Be release was the highest-selling debut EP ever.

The Californians followed it up with their America’s Least Wanted album, which was another commercial success.

Ugly Kid Joe quickly made a name for themselves as they defied attempts to be pigeon-holed, with their music bridging the divides between hard rock, thrash, funk and rap.

They called it a day in 1997 but the band – including frontman Whitfield Crane and fellow ever-present member Klaus Eichstadt on guitar – got back together in 2010, since when they have released their fourth album, Uglier Than They Used Ta Be.
