Young Guv And The Scuzz

June 3rd, 2012 | Mp3 Posts | 1 Comment

My musical hero Ben Cook of Toronto’s Marvelous Darlings, Fucked Up, The Bitters, blah blah blah is finally releasing a new full-length EP under his solo power-punk pseudonym Young Guv (and he’ll be joined by his sometimes-backing band, The Scuzz). Looks like the album EP will be called A Love Too Strong, and it drops on July 24th. Should be pretttttty cool.

Damnit! Of all the weekends in the year, my cousin couldn’t pick one on which Young Governor, Tropics and Huckleberry Friends weren’t doing a simultaneous threesome 7″ release party at Tiger Bar to have her engagement party?!?!!? Oy Guvult. (I’m just kidding, you know I love y’allz, cuz) Anyways, Ben Cook (Young Governor, Marvelous Darlings, Fucked Up, The Bitters) just sent over this MP3 of the 7″ he’ll be selling at the show, “Bedroom Eyes”, which features backing by The Scuzz, a supergroup comprised of members of several of the killer bands he’s in. It’s good. Really good. Dig the horns.

The Bitters are one of the many kick ass bands of Ben Cook/Young Governor, who’s also in Fucked Up and The Marvelous Darlings. Debatably though, the hero of sorts of The Bitters is Aerin Fogel, the femme fatal lead who’s vocals are the aural equivalent of an eagle swooping down upon helpless pray and tearing it to shreds. The fact that they open their album East General with a song called “Wild Beast” seems only too fitting.
