Yuck Headline The Bowery Ballroom Tomorrow NightFebruary 14th, 2014
Yuck are an international band: Singer-guitarist Max Bloom is a Londoner, bassist Mariko Doi hails from Hiroshima and drummer Jonny Rogoff is straight out of Jersey. (Guitarist Ed Hayes recently replaced original member David Blumberg, while Bloom took over Blumberg’s vocal duties.) Yuck (above, performing “Operation”) have put out a pair of albums, a self-titled affair (stream it below) in 2011—which “recalls the aesthetic of some of the forefathers of indie rock,” according to Consequence of Sound, which also glowingly makes comparisons to Dinosaur Jr., Sonic Youth and the Jesus and Mary Chain—and
last year’s Glow & Behold (stream it below)—about which PopMatters says “it’s a real pleasure to hear their take on the past.” But in the very near future, you can see Yuck play The Bowery Ballroom tomorrow night.
