Yoko and the Oh No's are three kids from Chicago, Max Goldstein on vocals, Max Loebman on guitar, and Stef Roti on drums, a raging trio fueled by Taco Bell, rock & roll myths, and pilfered booze. It doesn't quite add up how kids this young (Max L. just graduated high school) managed to tap into a vibe this classic. The band's self-titled full-length debut, out July 31 on Autumn Tone, is crammed with classic rock riffs, swinging beats, and up front, the sassy, done-up style of Max G. emoting loosely and widly like a young David Johansen fronting the New York Dolls, possessing a crooner voice and a taste for style. Dolled up in flashy get-ups, Max G.'s voice is a growly, beefy thing, a rangy tenor that belies his taste for soul shouters. The prevailing mood in modern indie garage rock is one of stylistic indifference, but that's not how Yoko and the Oh No's come across; these kiddos don't just care, they care a lot. Listen to the crashing classic rock chorus of “Heart Attack, the sneering "She Knows and the distorted R&B groove of “Nobody Wants to Know". “Talking over radio/on the moonlit drive/We listen to VU/Jane says close your eyes.Yoko and the Oh No's album is their first for Autumn Tone Records, which has a knack for finding raw young bucks (turn up records by the Orwells, Twin Peaks, and Modern Vices as a testament). Yoko & the Oh No's are currently on tour with likeminded rock & roll weirdos The Growlers, blowing minds and connecting with crowds across the Midwest.
