Fullerton, California, USA

Uthanda is an alternative rock band that initially had some slight connections to Blonde Vinyl Records before signing with other labels. There are a few rumors claiming they were signed to Blonde Vinyl, but the one known Blonde Vinyl connection is that the original guitar player for Uthanda was Larry Worley (cousin to Bob), who went on to form Love Life and Fear Not. Uthanda released two albums - one on Broken Again and then another on Essential Record Group - and then called it a day. Band leader Robert Beeson went on to start Essential Records, best known for discovering Jars of Clay.
