YouTube Rodeo: Yuck's "Get Away"
Kinda hot, kinda weird describes both Yuck's new video and the terrific and rising London-based act itself. The clip embedded above is the lead track from the quintet's superlative self-titled debut, which was released by Fat Possum last month. The band has a surprisingly busy SXSW schedule next week, playing a grand total of nine appearances over the course of four days, March 16 through 19. Local fans not able to get to the annual Austin-based music confab next week will have two shots to see Yuck bring the rock next month at the tail end of a West-to-East U.S. tour. The band plays Boston's Paradise Rock Club April 28 [Ticketbastard] and Northampton, Mass.'s Pearl Street nightclub the following evening. We mention the Pearl Street gig specifically because Yuck shares the stage with the absolutely fantastic NYC UFOs that night, making it one of the strongest bills we see on the radar. If you can't get enough of that Yuck rock 'n' roll stuff, here's a Soundcloud embed of the jam, but we can tell you from personal experience the Fat Possum dudes are totally obliging and will absolutely make sure you get your money's worth. Buy Yuck from Fat Possum right here. It will make you happy.
