Yeah Yeah Yeah's
July 2003

Some call them "garage rock revivalists," others prefer art punk trio, but the Yeah Yeah Yeahs have definitely created a formidable buzz, and they're in the radio.wazee spotlight this week with "A Date With The Night" from their debut full-length album "Fever to Tell." The Yeah Yeah Yeahs were discovered in the wake of the Strokes' popularity and the subsequent garage rock revival, powered by singer Karen O, guitarist Nicolas Zinner, and drummer Brian Chase. O met Chase at Ohio's Oberlin College and met Zinner through friends after she transferred to N.Y.U. Zinner and O formed the band in 2000 and recruited Chase when their original drummer bowed out. The Yeah Yeah Yeahs wrote a slew of songs at their first rehearsal and soon wound up supporting the Strokes and the White Stripes, earning a significant buzz for their arty-yet-sexy take on garage punk. In late 2001, the Yeah Yeah Yeahs released their self-titled debut EP, which they recorded with Boss Hog's Jerry Teel, on their own Shifty label. Early the next year the band stepped into the international spotlight, appearing at South By Southwest, touring the U.S. with Girls Against Boys, Europe with Jon Spencer Blues Explosion, and headlining their own U.K. tour. Wichita Recordings distributed the group's EP in the U.K. and Touch and Go reissued it in the States. In between tours, the group put the finishing touches on their full-length debut. American dates with Sleater-Kinney, the Liars and the Jon Spencer Blues Explosion followed throughout the rest of the year, with the "Machine" EP tiding over fans before their first full length. The Yeah Yeah Yeahs will also appear on the hotly anticipated compilation album from the folks at Buddyhead records, "Gimme Shelter: A Buddyhead Compilation," due September 30th. Weezer, Mudhoney, Burning Brides, Primal Scream, Your Enemies Friends and the Icarus Line are also on the 18-track disc, which showcases previously unreleased songs, according to a Nettwerk Records spokesperson.
