The Yummy Fur- "Night Club"
I came to The Yummy Fur through the Male Nurse, by way of the Country Teasers and I do not hold it against them that some later (? I sure hope so ?) members went on to form the insufferable Franz Ferdinand (YUCK).
The Yummy Fur is far more punchy and accessible than CT and the MN, drawing strong influences from the Fall, the Fire Engines, and the Minutemen (more noticeable on "Kinky Cinema") and of all of their records I've heard this one stands as my favorite. Short punchy Fall inspired off-kilter punky skronky poppy good time mayhem=good in my book, especially when I've been O.D.ing on denser music, as I tend to. This is weird and poppy...crossover!
Seriously though, give this record a shot...something accessible to today (even though this is from '96...modern enough, right?) on this blog? Take advantage!
