UAIOE is industrial rock group KMFDM's fourth album. It was released in 1989. UAIOE began a KMFDM tradition of using five-letter words as album titles, a tradition that survived until the release of Hau Ruck in 2005.

Background[edit]

Vocalist Raymond Watts had left the group midway through the recording of the previous album, Don't Blow Your Top. Multi-instrumentalists Sascha Konietzko and En Esch brought drummer Rudolph Naomi on board, who had previously worked with the group in the mid-1980s, along with reggae vocalist Morgan Adjei. UAIOE was recorded in Hamburg, Germany at M.O.B. Studios.

Release[edit]

UAIOE was released in 1989 on Cash Beat Records in Germany, on Deutschland Strikeback Records in the United Kingdom, and on Wax Trax! Records in the United States. A remastered reissue of UAIOE was released September 12, 2006, featuring new liner notes and photos of the band.[1]
