It's been a while since I checked in with the wonderful work of Dirty Laundry TV, so here's a good one to catch up with.
Rising London quartet Yuck entertain with some nan stories and a group of rather stereotype-enforcing band members: introspective, distant singer, gregarious drummer, awkward guitarist, and inconspicuous bassist.

MP3: Yuck - Rubber
Taken from debut album Yuck, out now
So that 90's 'Seattle sound' is finally being hauled from the annals of rock history for a bright new revival, huh? Good good, we're all tiring of bands aping New Order and Depeche Mode anyway, right? Time to move on to the next decade.
Remember what's up after grunge, though.....nu-metal. You have been warned.
Yuck are on tour in the US during April and May. Check out their Myspace for all the dates.
