UGLY THINGS' coverage of 1960s Beat, Garage, and Psychedelic music is second to none and continues to be the magazine's main focus, with deeply-researched articles and interviews with some of the finest overlooked artists from the 20th century's most tumultuous decade. However, UGLY THINGS prides itself in covering a wide range of "Wild Sounds From Past Dimensions", from 1920s rural blues to 1950s R&B to obscure '70/'80s punk rock. (A great article on Airchecks in issue 25 and we didn't even have to beg much -Thank you Mike!!)
