After a short sound check “Yuck” came on, blasting away with their fuzzy and distorted rock. A lot of people in the audience were very familiar with their songs and happily sang along. With only one full-length album release up to now, they don’t have too much material to fall back on, but they did play some new songs. All together it was a short, but sweet set, surprisingly without encore. All kinds of comparisons came to my mind while watching "Yuck" onstage. There is a lot of resemblance to many bands from the 90s and while this band might not be the most original, they are charismatic and fun to watch. What seems a tad tepid on their album, is lively and fresh during their live performance.
The last song played was "Rubber", ending with a feedback infused noise fest, which would’ve made Sonic Youth proud and left the audience wanting more. All together a great show with the youthful and charming “Yuck”
