Yuck :: "Rubber"

It takes more than seven minutes to slog through the fuzz and the feedback of Yuck's "Rubber". The band that so stunned us earlier this year with the Pains of Being Pure At Heart-inspired "Georgia," have gone in something of a different direction as they ready their debut LP for a February release. Here, they evoke a ground-down Thurston Moore aesthetic, or the Pixies, if recorded underwater at half the BPMs. On "Rubber," you imagine the last grainy scenes of a movie with one of those unheroic, anti-climax endings where everything goes wrong and the girl ends up with someone else, and the VX gas hits San Francisco, and John McClane falls slowly from the 30th story of Nakatomi plaza.
