Question for everyone: what does it mean to “yuckchew”? Go ahead, head to Urban Dictionary. Come back. Okay, what did you find? Jack shit, right? Because the word means nothing. What is in play is that damn good band Yuck and they have a new song called “Chew”, so you’re probably going “why in the hell did you make me go to Urban Dictionary in the first place?” With luck, you didn’t. You knew this was nothing more than a lure to keep you reading so you could go “damn, this Book guy is wacky and zany, but you know what? As I’m reading this, I’m tempted to take a listen to whatever this yuckchew is” and I have to remind you once more: the name of the artist I’m speaking of is a band named Yuck, and the song is called “Chew”.
As I write this, the band are getting ready to hit the stage at Coachella in half an hour. With luck, you may be reading this from the festival and saying “yes, I’m all about that yuckchew, even have my souvenir T-shirt.” They’ll return to Coachella next week Friday, but will be doing a number of other shows in California to keep people coming in for the Yuckchew movement.
