Yuck are a rock band that originated in London, England in 2009. The band currently consists of drummer Jonny Rogoff, guitarist Ed Hayes, bassist Mariko Doi, and lead vocalist/guitarist Max Bloom. The band's self-titled debut album was released through Fat Possum on 21 February 2011 in the United Kingdom. Critics have likened the band to bands such as Dinosaur Jr., Pavement, My Bloody Valentine and Sonic Youth.

With comparisons to Dinosaur Jr., Sonic Youth and My Bloody Valentine, Yuck shoulder an immense burden. It seems almost impossible for the London-based fuzz-pop outfit to emulate or even meet the acclaim, plaudits and success that the aforementioned shoegaze legends have wallowed in. However, Yuck are giving it a blimmin' good try.

When the time calls for intensity, they wear fingertips to the bone strumming,thwacking and picking with the force of 10,000 '90s rockers. They may appear chillaxed on first glance, but they can delve into utter sonic insanity on a whim.
