Free Download: Burning Well/Infin (Live)

For those who missed out on our gig at The Tote a couple of weeks back; here's a snippet of what it sounded like. If the rest of the tracks come out good we'll chuck them up too. But for now, here's Burning Well and Infin. You can stream it below or download it by pressing the little button that says 'download'.

Andre and Simon fly off to Europe tomorrow; keep track of where they are and what they're up to on the YIS Facebook page. They'll also be posting demos and sounds from the road up on the Soundcloud.

Facebook Competition

Okay, so, ever since Facebook upgraded our old group to a new group (and in the process deleted all the members), our number of 'likes' on the book o' face has looked pretty grim. Anyway, to rectify that, we're running a competition where you can win a bunch of really cool stuff just for clicking LIKE on our page.

So, here's what you can win.

Pretty cool, huh? And here's more detail...

Firstly, a full set of every YIS release so far: the YIS Live Mixtape #1 (number 4 of 40 copies, mostly given away at The Tote on October 31, 2009), the Trevor Block Rockin' Beats/Sex Beat single (number 26 of 30 copies, only given away at our show at The Birmingham Hotel on January 7, 2010), the Lizardman/Live at YIS Manor EP (number 12 of 30 only given out at The Old Bar in March 2010, but there are a few less as I didn't burn off as many as I numbered), and our first proper recording: Kingdom of Fuzz (number whatever of 500, of which we only have a few copies left).

Speaking of Kingdom of Fuzz, you also win the guitar strings off the Gibson Non-Reverse Firebird I used to record every guitar note on the entire album. (Okay, fine, I did use a couple of other guitars for little bits, and I did break one string on the second day (I think it was the G string), and that one ended up on the floor/in the bin, but the replacement string did see a lot of action as well.)

You also get a YIS shirt (but unfortunately sizes are limited to S, L, XL, 2XL or Girls Large), as well as the three Kingdom of Fuzz badges and a signed poster.

I'm trying to get Andre to donate one of his doodles for this too (like the ones he did for the gig on Sunday), so hopefully that'll be included too, as well as any other cool stuff I can dig up between now and next week.

Three runners-up will get a deluxe KoF set with a shirt, CD, badge and poster.

So, yes, all you have to do is go here and like the page. Or just click below! If you already like it, you're already entered. Winner will be chosen at random when the competition closes on Friday March 16th.
