Their fitfth full-length is called "For Those About To Pop!" and the title brings it to the point. It's stacked with catchy hi-energy, guitar-driven power-pop songs, complete with sugary multi-layered harmonies and lyrics that seems to be stolen from some 12 year-old girl's diary. Like Joss Hutton once wrote in Bucketfull Of Brains Magazine, "Let's consider the three minute pop-song for a second or two: so simple in it's construction, so inscrutable in it's perfection, so many who have tried and failed! For me the YUM YUMS have been THE band to watch over the past few years, their perfect (yep, it's true) take on the "power-pop" thang is a source of constant pleasure and amuzement".
A pretty good description that is, but what more can we say about those ambassadors of pop? They deliver REAL POWER-POP, with the word power written in capital letters. Putting together the essential ingrediences of the music of the RAMONES, the PLIMSOULS and the OHIO EXPRESS, the 6t's and the 7t's, bubblegum and punk, pop and rock'n'roll, just to create their very own YUMMY sound. So, what we're talking about is extremely catchy pop-music with a fat, rockin' guitar sound, well executed vocal-lines, ridin'-on-the-waves drums and a crunchy punk feel to it. It simply makes you feel good!
THE YUM YUMS are: Morten Henriksen - vocal, guitars Gunnar Brontveit - guitar, backing vocals Ulf Ramone Bendiksen - drums Frank Reiten - bass, backing vocals
