For ageing indie kids like myself, Yuck are a glimpse back to formative times. Back in the early 90s, I was all about shoegaze, American indie rock like Dinosaur Jr and the classic West-coast inclined jangly guitar pop coming out of my native Glasgow. The remarkable thing about Yuck is not only that they manage to synthesise the best of all these worlds into a handful of songs, they do so despite only just being born I was first listening to these sounds.  I asked them my seven questions, but there’s nothing to feed my nostalgia, which is a good thing really. Seven Songs is much more about what’s happening now. Yuck definitely are.

Tell us something about Rubber
