New Fuzz Club Records signing YOBS bring a fuzzy garage punk blast
Rising from the ashes like a phoenix, Liverpool’s YOBS launch their debut double single ‘Fortune Teller b/w Cemetery Man‘ upon the public this week, and announce their signing to Fuzz Club!
Emerging out of the rubble of the now-defunct Liverpool bands Weird Sex (Roadkill Records) and Ohmns, YOBS was kick-started last year and is made up of Joey Ackland (Vocals), Alex Smith (Bass/Vocals), Michael Quinlan (Guitar/Vocals) and George Gebbie (Drums).
Their debut release arrives off the back of a 2023 spent playing rowdy, ear-ringing shows with the likes of A Place To Bury Strangers, Mark Sultan, C.O.F.F.I.N, Alien Nosejob and more.
During that time, they’ve also been busy writing and recording their debut album, slated for release next year, and these two tracks are an exhilarating preview of what’s to come.
Talking about the single, YOBS’ Alex Smith said: “Fortune Teller is the firestarter you’ve been waiting for. Be prepared for a roller-coaster of high-energy riffs and pounding drums. As with most of our songs, Fortune Teller came from a bit of a warm up before practice. Usually the songs come together in between practicing the set and so they always feel quite natural to us. We know we’re onto something when Joey puts the pieces together with his wild man vocals (Yobs 5th instrument).”

‘Usually found jumping around down the front at gigs, I also relish taking photos and videos, singing, speaking with fellow music fans, and asking musicians the questions nobody else does Writing about my favourite bands and connecting with people who love music too keeps me more-or-less sane I’ve worked for over 25 years at a video production company, mainly filming live music events, therefore I have an additional backstage perspective!’
