Yooves - Imagine The Rapture meets Les Savy Fav and Pellethead (Middlesbrough Music Live Homegrown Headliners!) are playing FOR FREE! this Saturday at Uncle Alberts in Boro.




Doors 8:30pm / 18+ / £FREE


Born from the ashes of Mirror! Mirror!, Youves are a macho dance punk quintet from small-town Nuneaton. With their debut mini-album all set to emerge this spring on the thriving Holy Roar label (Rolo Tomassi, Gallows, Dananananaykroyd etc), the band are heading out on a headline tour of the UK and we're pleased as punch to welcome them to Uncle Alberts.


If you can imagine the missing link between The Rapture and Les Savy Fav, then you can probably imagine Youves.


As if spitting in the face of their parochial backwater origins, their sound is a wide ranging spastic hybrid of post-punk, indie and hardcore spirit, alive with the fearless folly of youth. Lean, aggressive and kinetic, they're a five-headed beast with a razor sharp sonic focus and steal eyed vision. Enjoy.


"Their Gang Of Four attacking The Rapture with a rusty breadknife-like guitar, awkward disco and lashings of cow bell is nigh on hypnotising. It is probably only legal to actually listen to ‘Wolfgang Bang’ in licensed record shops in Amsterdam. It’s a massive, lubed-up ear dildo of a song and it nearly makes The Fly climax tonight, bringing a whole new meaning to the term; ‘banging tune’..." The Fly


Support comes from Pellethead - or "Olds" if you like ;) - who've just been announced as headliners for the Homegrown Indoor stage at Middlesbrough Music Live. Phwoar! Expect their own unique brand of post-punk sitting somewhere between Captain Beefheart and Devo.





Uncle Albert's very own DJ extraordinaire Chloe Smith will be getting her hits out as always and there'll be loads of cheap drinks promos on the go + those of you who fancy making a night of it will be able pick up an advance Metropolis Empire ticket for just £5 inc. a free shot!
