Bits + Pieces

A few small things.

Andre and I are heading up to Brisbane with Brat Farrar in the second weekend of July to play 'Flavours of Skuzz'; a one day festival put together by Ben Salter. We'll be doing a few other Brat shows around that. No YIS stuff planned as yet, but it'll still be good.

Additionally, Brat Farrar and YIS should be heading over to Adelaide on Saturday June 11th to launch our warez. More details soon.

As far as Melbourne goes, YIS are playing this Thursday night/Friday morning at Pony. We've also organised a headline show at Cherry on Friday May 20. The Stiffys are also playing, along with one other band. Brat Farrar will also be having a 7-inch launch at The Tote in July.

Our pals The Summervilles are heading down to Melbourne this weekend for two shows; Thursday night at The Blue Tile Lounge on Smith St (a couple of doors down from Yah Yahs, and a couple of doors up from Andre's beloved 'Fitzroy Kebabs'), and a party in Richmond that Bron's put together on Good Friday with Baptism of Uzi, Kids of Zoo and Mesa Cosa. Get in touch via if you want location details.

Finally, Andre got a mention for his work behind the kit in this review for Constant Light's 'Mag-Amplitude' on Mess & Noise.

More Shirts, More Sizes, More Awesome

(with thanks to Michael Lippmann for the tip-off)

More shirts headed to YIS Manor; we've put in a new order which should be in within the fortnight, so we can now offer new sizes in both Mens and Ladies cuts over at our Bandcamp. You can purchase anything from Mens Small up to Extra EXTRA Large, and Ladies Medium and Large over at Bandcamp now. Limited quantities at the very small and larger ends of the scale though, so order sooner rather than later to avoid disappointment. As we've ordered a few more this time, we got a bit of a discount, so shirts are now $1-2 less depending on what option you choose. $25 for the shirt + compact disc + signed poster + download, or just $20 for the shirt + poster + download (and no CD). Click here to order.

We're currently sketching out some new ideas and have penciled in a few shows in June and July to road-test the new tunes. Details soon.
