I saw a young band last night at the Lexington. I was there to see Real Estate (they were fab). The rest of the bill wasn’t known to me before turning up. I got there just as Yuck took to the stage. The singers younger sister got up to sing on one song. It was called ‘Georgia’. It stuck with me. It’s up on their my space as demo. At the gig I was thinking their was something of a grunge feel to the sound that Yuck make. Listening now to that song it’s the paw prints of J Mascis and his 80s slacker noiseniks Dinosaur Jr that loom the largest on this song. This is no bad thing.
The other song on their page is another demo. This one is called ‘Automatic’. A piano/keys led song. Less to my liking. As for their performance. I liked them enough for them to be worth seeing again. Luckily – the band have a whole bunch of supports slots coming up across London. I’ll mark them as ones to watch.
