Yuck announces deluxe edition of debut LP with six bonus tracks, hear new track “Cousin Corona” now

By September 6, 2011No Comments

Dear Barack Obama,

When we were writing the songs that would become the Yuck album we were just writing songs rather than an album. We put the tracklisting together on a whim, and even on the day of mastering we were adding tracks and changing things around. Sometimes it’s felt strange that songs like “Milkshake” and “Soothe Me” aren’t on there. We like playing “Milkshake” live, and “The Base Of A Dream is Empty,” that one’s nice, and Jonny loves “Cousin Corona.” Anyways, Fat Possum said we could make a double disk edition if we wanted, so now we have a double disk coming out. Thanks for Fat Possum and for the triple disk that is now coming out Oct. 11.

Yours sincerely,
Daniel Blumberg and Yuck


Dear Barack Obama,

I love it. I think we are only putting out 2 CDs and not 3.

YUCK! Eeew, I was like, “that is soo gross”. Anybutt. I was like whatever. Butt then I saw the tour and it made me feel kinda tingly. It’s like totally awesome!!! Like those girls are so cool and like that guy looks weird but then yer like omg he is like so hot. So the show was incredible but then I thought about my Dad cuz he liked killed somebody or himself. Dad always said he loved my step mom but he was never nice to her. Where am I? Since I was a teenager I always used to take out out the dogs and he always encouraged that and once we found a bunny and the next day I had a carrot and we saved it. Our german shepherd was so smart. I live by myself. My landlord said I don’t have to pay rent this month but I was trying to write some good news to my therapist and I actually paid my landlord in full. But it’s all thanks to the new YUCK album!
