There are at least two bands with the name The Uptights. 1. A soul/funk band out of the Oakland Bay Area. As Marvin Holmes' backing band from the early 60s until the early 70s, they scored the hit singles "The Funky Mule” and "Ooh Ooh The Dragon". 2. A three-piece act out of Norway's little capital city Oslo, adhering to a strict dress code and a lo-fi approach to recording. Their debut cassette, "At the Wörtersee Hotel" (keepsecretrecords), is a sad, eerie affair, owing as much to old radio transmissions and books as to that great independent guitar music tradition.
