U.X.A. featuring lead singer [Dee Dee] Troit is one of San Francisco (later relocating to L.A.) finest bands. U.X.A was one of the uprising bands that came out of San Francisco along with groups like The Avengers and The Nuns.
U.X.A. put out some excellent old-school punk back in the late '70s and early '80s, with band members such as Ritchie O'Connell, Billy Southard, Linwood Land, Patrick O'Sullivan and many more.... U.X.A came out with great sounds and songs from the album Illusions of Grandeur, which up until recently was a rare find on vinyl. In this album features, among ten classic UXA hits, a final cataclysmic a capella version of "death from above" Dee Dee's Moving memorial mass to UXA's Mentor Michael "killer"Kowalski who died.
