Yuck: Shook Down

Yuck do seem more than happy to keep their videos unsafe for the working environment. Their video for "Shook Down," takes multiple shots of multiple models and crudely combines the elements into animated collage people — NAKED animated collage people. "Shook Down," though, is very melodic and pleasant, a juxtaposition to the otherwise odd mutations conceived for the video.

"Shook Down" is being released as a single with the B-side "Milkshake," a song that doesn't appear on their debut album.  You can read a review for Yuck's self-titled LP here.  All information and links are courtesy of Force Field PR.

Can't say this enough: UNSUITABLE FOR THE CUBICLE!
