On 5 September 2013, Yuck posted a video of a live recording of New Order's 'Age of Consent'.[10] The video was recorded 30 August 2013 by Michael Lawrence in RAK Studios, along with some other songs. According to their Facebook page, this track will be the b-side to the Middle Sea single. Newcomer Ed Hayes plays on this track.
