SONGS FOR CHILDREN PRESENTS
AND THUD LIVE IN HONG KONG
' Like Teenage Fanclub, Yuck realize there’s something mystical and powerful about pairing distortion with crystalline power pop.
It’s also worth noting they’ve returned to their debut’s emphasis on rifflage…..They took the best of their first and second albums and made something even fresher this time around.’’ Stranger Things PASTE 8/10
Yuck, a band of no fixed hairstyle from London, undoubtedly pulled off the best debut album of 2011; no mean feat for a bunch of kids who weren’t even 20. Although the band wear their hearts on their sleeve, Dinosaur Jr, Teenage Fanclub and Pixies (Yuck have supported all three!) and Sonic Youth are all there, what makes them stand out is their ability to wrap up all these influences into the freshest sounding pop/grunge/scuzz.
The huge buzz and excitment caused by their debut album catapaulted Yuck to the international stage. They toured extensively including sold out headline shows and festival spots at Glastonbury, Reading Leeds, Bestival and Primavera Sound. With their 3rd album ‘Stranger Things’ Yuck return to their roots and do what they do best - guitar riffs, melodies and hooks like no other.
Yuck’s last 2 shows in Hong Kong SOLD OUT very quickly so get your ticket quick for one of the most respected UK indie bands!
Yuck will be supported by Hong Kong’s THUD their latest single ‘Prime of Pride’ was mixed by Max Bloom of Yuck and premiered on ‘Sounds Better with Reverb’.
