The Urge

The St. Louis-based ska-punk outfit the Urge was formed in 1987 by vocalist Steve Ewing and bassist Karl Grable, who together remained the nexus of the group throughout the many roster changes which followed. The original Urge lineup debuted in 1989 with the cassette-only Bust Me Dat Forty, followed a year later by the LP Puttin' the Backbone Back. After the additions of saxophonist Bill Reiter and trombonists Matt Kwiatkowski and Todd Painter, the group released 1992's Magically Delicious; guitarist Jerry Jost and drummer John Pessoni joined a year later, and this lineup recorded the 1993 live LP Fat Babies in the Mix. A tour with 311 helped the Urge win any number of new fans, and 1995's Receiving the Gift of Flavor was so successful that it brought the band to the attention of Epic's Immortal imprint, which reissued the LP in 1996. Master of Styles followed in 1998. Too Much Stereo came in mid-2000. ~ Jason Ankeny, Rovi

This freaked me out This isn't fake. Apparently if you copy and paste this on ten comments you will have the best day of your life tomorrow. You will either get kissed or asked out. If you break the chain you will see a dead girl in your room tonight. In the next 53 minutes someone will say I love you or I'm sorry

The Urge always puts on an amazing show. Got to see them the last two years on Thanksgiving weekend. The new CD is pretty good too.

I can say that they were huge in South Florida in the late 90's. Ska was so big there, I just wish that it didn't fade away so fast from the mainstream

I love the urge. One of the best live bands to see. I've been lucky to see them about 20 times. PTMFUS!!!!!!

THE URGE IS BACK TOGETHER!! PLAYING POINTFEST IN ST.LOUIS ON SEPTEMBER 10. NEW SONG HAS BEEN RELEASED TO LOCAL RADIO STATION 105.7 THE POINT. NEW MATERIAL COMING AT A LATER DATE!!!!!!
Where is 'Receiving the Gift?' Best album by far!
Saw them in Lawrence Ks in the Mid 90's. Great shows, so much energy. Too bad they aren't carrying on the torch.

It's gettin hectic, it's getting crazy, it's getting hectic, it's gettin WILD... Man I loved those shows, Mississippi Nights, or Kennedy's, I'd be bruised for weeks. Oh to be young again...
Steve is just a cool dude to hang with!
Saw The Urge at Mississippi Nights in St. Louis many years ago. Still a little tired from the moshing. What a great experience.

BUST ME DAT 40!!!!!!

from NC and loving the urge. master of styles and receiving the gift of flavor are friggin awesome although different. both are fav's of mine and i have pushed them upon friends who would otherwise never listen to the type of music, they loved it.
stephen.keen e
Still a Favorite in my book!
Receiving was by far the best album. Too bad they never gained the success they deserved, outside of STL. Nothing like a show at Mississippi Nights with Fragile Porcelain Mice opening. PTMFUS
