It’s been 10 years since Craig Dyer titled his creative project, The Underground Youth, and started releasing his lo-fi psychedelic recordings for free online. Following the prolific output of 2009’s ‘Morally Barren’ and ‘Voltage’ and 2010’s ‘Mademoiselle’ and ‘Sadovaya’, a loyal fan base quickly developed and has continued to grow from there.

Fifth album ‘Delirium’ was released in 2011 and was to be the first release for the brand new independent record label, Fuzz Club Records. Following the release the label urged Dyer to assemble a live band and bring TUY’s music to the stage. The line-up has seen a number of changes over the years but having relocated from Manchester to Berlin in 2016, is currently settled with Craig (Vocals, Guitar) Olya Dyer (Drums) Max James (Bass) and Leonard Kaage (Guitar).

Since the live band was assembled in 2012, TUY have been constantly touring Europe and the rest of the world, consistently selling out shows and receiving widespread praise for their festival performances. Building on their cult following wherever they travel.

Since signing to Fuzz Club Records, TUY have released a further 3 LP’s, 2013’s ‘The Perfect Enemy For God’, 2015’s ‘Haunted’ and 2017’s ‘What Kind Of Dystopian Hellhole Is This?’ Bringing the total number of releases to 8 LP’s and 3 EP’s, along with live sessions, singles and special re-releases, TUY have not dropped the prolific level of output over their 10 year existence.

With a distinct sound that has continuously developed over the years, TUY have crossed from their unique brand of darkly cinematic psychedelia to a raw and blisteringly style of post-punk. The band captured this sound live in their Berlin studio for what was to be TUY’s ninth album. ‘Montage Images of Lust & Fear’ was released in March 2019.

Focusing on contrasting beautiful melodies and dark poetic lyrics, the subconscious of this new album was penetrated by the raw energy and noise of the band’s current live shows. In support of this record TUY toured extensively through Asia and Europe throughout 2019.

The Vacant Lots are an American duo comprised of Jared Artaud and Brian MacFadyen. The key element of The Vacant Lots’ minimalist, primitive rock and roll songs is their boundless energy, which tears up the psych template with a genuine punk spirit. The notion of duality is also a recurring theme in the band’sminimal means maximum effect aesthetic, whether in their lyrics or fiercely monochromatic artwork.

The group has collaborated with underground music legends including; Sonic Boom (who mixed their debut album Departure), Alan Vega of Suicide (who’s vocals are featured on the band’s second album Endless Night) and Anton Newcombe who has recorded and produced 2 EPs at his Berlin studio with the band. Their second EP together is expected for a 2019 release on Anton’s label, A Recordings.

Having recently toured Europe with Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, The Vacant Lots will be hitting the road this summer with The Dandy Warhols in the USA.
