Yuck Does New Order’s ‘Age of Consent’ [VIDEO]
Posted on: September 19th, 2013 at 11:35 am by MacKenzie
Captured during a live recording session at the legendary RAK Studios in Northwest London, Yuck’s interpretation of the Manchester band’s 1983 cult favorite – as originally heard on their impeccable Power, Corruption & Lies LP — is filmed in 360-style. Don’t be surprised if you find yourself swirling around wherever you are when you watch. Vocalist/guitarist Max Bloom sounds remarkably akin to Bernard Sumner, too, which leaves us swooning, of course. Plus, get a glimpse at the band’s new guitarist Ed Hayes.
If you want more, Yuck is set to release their sophomore album, Glow & Behold, via Fat Possum on October 1. And their “Age of Consent” bit will appear as the B-side to the “Middle Sea” seven-inch single.
Catch ‘em at CMJ, kicking off the week of October 16!
The over-priced juice craze is spreading like wildfire across the city. Brands like Juice Press and Liquiteria are making huge strides in the retail game. Kinda like what fro-yo was a few years ago. Anyway. Two months after we first reported on its arrival, Juicery New York is now serving its namesake products in Seward […]
The Sunshine Hotel, one if the last operational flophouses on the Bowery, is downsizing. The SRO, which straddles three contiguous buildings near Stanton Street, will lose a third of its footprint to office space. Looks like Sunshine owner Roseann Carone finally got her wish to liquidate 241 Bowery. Six years ago the Department of Housing […]
Another potential loss for Essex Street. The writing is on the wall door. Comfort eatery Brannon’s at 119 Essex is now closed for the requisite “renovations.” To those following at home, that excuse oftentimes translates to death watch. The branded social media arm is quiet, and emails to owner Ron Brannon have gone unanswered. Brannon’s opened […]
The arrival of tombstone leasing signage above the storefront of 43 Essex Street wasn’t completely surprising. After all, we brought word back in April that G&S Sporting Goods - selling boxing gear on the Lower East Side for over seventy years – was indeed on the ropes. The shop stayed open through the summer, though, even […]
Two tragedies of August 2014 – Robin Williams and Kim’s Video. Last night, the last iteration of the once-dominant Kim’s Video & Music empire shuttered for good. The asking rent on the store – located at 124 First Avenue – was jacked to $16,500. With this imminent closure in mind, as well as the stunning […]
Pretty much everyone snaps photos of the Bowery graffiti wall. That’s a given. Not just newlyweds or OMG girls, either. Even multi platinum pop stars and fashion brands, who then exploit the imagery for commercial gain and get sued as a result. Yes, Sara Bareilles (and her label Sony/Epic) and Coach are the offending parties, […]
It’s a sad day of purgatory for local gamers. All signs point to game over for Two Bit’s Retro Arcade at 153 Essex Street, but nothing is yet confirmed. Instead we’re left with a room full of cabinets and a window to tease. Roughly one week ago, the establishment closed with a handwritten note on the door […]
Herewith, an update on that new construction that replaced the Federal-style rowhouse at 135 Bowery. The property is three years in the making, with construction having kickstarted roughly eight months ago after a lengthy holding pattern. Whatever might have remained of the original structure is no longer recognizable, if even there at all. Instead, we now […]
Hair of the Dog might be considered one of the worst operators in Hell Square, but it’s neck-in-neck with the Sixth Ward up the street at 191 Orchard Street. Those are seemingly the sentiments of many residents living within earshot of the bar. At issue with the seven-year-old establishment is its 90-seat beer garden, which is […]
The Lower East Side lost one of its most vibrant chroniclers this past week. Legendary photographer Rebecca Lepkoff passed away on August 17, a mere thirteen days after turning 98. Growing up at 60 Hester Street, Lepkoff acquired her first camera with money earned as a modern dancer at the 1939 World’s Fair. She was […]
