It amazes me how quickly they fell into obscurity. I was fortunate enough to catch a few live shows here in the DC area, and that first album was a MONSTER. They were far and away a better band, with better songs, than any of their peers. Then...I'm not so sure what happened.

Now we get to hear about the YYYs in what remains of the music press. Vomit.


I don't think they "fell into obscurity". They played 2nd on the bill (behind Jack White) at last year's Governor's Ball, and headlined Madison Square Garden as recently as 2011.

They're not the media darlings they once were but they're doing ok for themselves. Hot Hot Heat, on the other hand, is a name I haven't heard or thought about in about 10+ years.

I'm just a bit shock after I knew that they already been together as a band for about 16 years. That was so amazing! Having stayed in the industry for that long is already a big achievement! And the reason why they rarely be seen on media that's because the band decided to pull a media blackout with their latest release album: no promotion in the form of TV appearances, interviews, photos, shows, or even tours. But still received a positive reviews. They may not be that great but their passion in music are really admirable plus their teamwork is enough for me to admire this group.
