Yuck are a rock band that originated in London, England in 2009. The band currently consists of drummer Jonny Rogoff, guitarist Ed Hayes, bassist Mariko Doi, and lead vocalist/guitarist Max Bloom. The band's self-titled debut album was released through Fat Possum on 21 February 2011 in the United Kingdom. Critics have likened the band to bands such as Dinosaur Jr., Pavement, My Bloody Valentine and Sonic Youth.
With comparisons to Dinosaur Jr., Sonic Youth and My Bloody Valentine, Yuck should eran immense burden. It seems almost impossible for the London-based fuzz-pop outfit to emulate or even meet the acclaim, plaudits and success that the aforementioned shoegaze legends have wallowed in. However, Yuck are giving it a blimmin' good try.
Two of the members (Max Bloom and Daniel Blumberg – though the latter has subsequ-ently scarpered to participate in solo project Hebronix) are Cajun Dance Party alumni, bringing their indie experience into the fold. This adds a sense of warmth and melody that shoegaze often lacks, and gives Yuck a vital edge amid the slurry of distortion permeating the airwaves these days. Together on stage they cut meandering shapes, swooning about in a delirious haze and swaying in thewind like fey sunflowers.
However, when the time calls for intensity, They wear fingertips to the bone strumming,thwackingand picking with the force of 10,000 '90s rockers. They may appear chillaxed on first glance, but they can delve into utter sonic insanity on a whim, spinning off hook-laden pop tunes like “The Wall”, “Milkshake” and “Rebirth” with a maniacal pep. Their shows are mesmerising, blending the elegiac tranquillity of layered guitar rock, and the efferv-escent buzz of bubblegum pop. (by Larryday)
