Biography

Active: 1970s
Country Of origin: United States of America

This hilariously inept Detroit bowling alley/lounge band was fronted by Ernie "King" Uszniewicz (b. 1945) from 1969 to 1979. The crudest tenor saxophonist in the history of rock & roll, King Uszniewicz (pronounced "you-snev-vitch") & the U-Tones had only one single, issued on a local label during the '70s. Dubbed by one critic as "the worst oldies band I ever heard in my life," they played with a bludgeoning energy, oblivious to the fact that they were woefully shy in the talent department. However, when the group's first album showed up on several college radio playlists in 1989, they earned a minor cult following among both record collectors and young alternative music fans. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine~ Rovi
