At the Exact Moment I Decide I Give a Shit About Them, U.K. Band Yuck Cancels Their Show at Mercury Lounge

Just a little while ago, after hearing rumblings about them for the past few weeks, I decided I would finally give of-the-moment British band Yuck a quick listen to see if, against all odds, they were worth paying attention to. Lo and behold, I was actually enjoying it—predictably pleased by their love of dreamy, fuzzed-out indie-pop, which I have decided sounds exactly like that of the fictional band in Jonathan Lethem’s You Don’t Love Me Yet. “Maybe I’ll go see them at Mercury Lounge tonight,” I thought. But no, I won’t. Word comes, via the venue’s Twitter that the band has had to cancel tonight’s show due to visa issues. As of now, tomorrow night’s show at Glasslands is still on. We’ll let you know if we hear anything to the contrary, of course. After the jump, a video for the very good song, “Georgia,” and another, much weirder, much more NSFW one for “Rubber.”
