You could hardly call the crunching dirge of ‘Chew’ a step forward for Yuck, more a step closer to them becoming the ultimate US slacker-rock tribute act. But the sooner the world acknowledges that this lot ‘do’ Dinosaur Jr as well as their seniors, the sooner we can get on with revelling in this song’s dirty brilliance.
