Click to Listen to Yuck's Yuck

The members of Yuck were in diapers when indie rock was exploding in the early Nineties, but from the sound of the London band's rambunctious debut, someone was slipping import seven-inch singles onto their nursery stereos. The distortion-caked "Georgia" borrows Yo La Tengo's spun-sugar boy-girl vocals and "Shook Down" has the kind of pie-eyed harmonies that made Teenage Fanclub songs so pretty. Yuck channel their college-rock jones with skill and charm, balancing in-the-red guitar fuzz with melodic sweetness. "They can never burn out my love for you," Daniel Blumberg sings in "Suck." That he could be talking about either an ex-girlfriend or Thurston Moore is part of Yuck's appeal.
