DEMOTION TEXT - my father and her only son
Yeah You are not a band but a living surrealist art project. After releasing a series of recordings that seemed to display natural progression in their provocatively de-ventilated style, the degenerate truth is back and writhing.
This non-album is not a statement it is a question. How to produce something without it becoming a commodity as soon as it hits the ground? Keeping the message porous by biting the tongue of the messenger and relegating all possible selling points.
‘This will not be consumed, you will not sell what I presume, this will not be consumed, this will be outdated, this will be trampled away’
In the most base insipid fashion we have tried to embody the writhing invalid smiling within it’s infrastructure of self-polishing crutches, a pushchair of networks that enables it to fane a solipsistic optimum. It is only when the macbook is fucked and the social life is stripped, that two generations of the same confused organism turn to the dregs of existential autonomy. Revert to the material we are left with when all advisable being-regimes have been plucked, which here happens to be a Casio keyboard, a dictaphone and a microphone.
Throning regression, the first wretch is unearthed: The palimpsestic undercarriage of KRUTCH: emblems of an uncouth praxis. This is the worst album Yeah You has ever made and captures most indiscreetly the rotting essence of the duo’s proliferation.
