The Underground Youth are a band for whom demand has always outstripped supply, so don’t hang around on this Fuzz Club release of Mademoiselle! This 2010 record was only ever released online before, so this is the first opportunity to get a physical copy of this particular strain of lo-fi psych-folk. CD and 1000-copies-only vinyl editions.
8/10 The Doc Customer review, 4th May 2016
Interesting early(ish) release from Manchester miserablists. This is basically the sound of someone who's listened to an awful lot of BJM - especially Thank God For Mental Illness - and thought, you know what? It sounds like a piece of piss to make a record like that. And so it proves. Acoustics are strummed, tambourines are occasionally shaken, vocals are drawled, druggily, and the whole thing rambles on in a rather pleasant, slow-burning manner, like that warm fuzzy buzz you get from mixing dizzies with wine.
Think BJM, think Stoned and Dethroned, think Jason Pierce with nothing but a guitar and a bag of brown for company......It's nowhere near as interesting as Haunted or The Perfect Enemy For God, and in some respects it's like listening to a completely different band, but it's strangely compelling in its own little way, although fuck only knows how it's managed to get three million hits on YouTube. Well worth a look for fans of lo-fi, ramshackle psych.
