UPDATE: Due to unforeseen circumstances this will no longer be a live stream in the venue tonight. Instead Yeah You have decided to record some wild pop live performances on the motorway this evening - which will stream on the link to the side of this text from around 9.30pm (GMT/UK time) onwards. In the meantime we'll be playing some of the favourite tunes from our archive. Apologies for the change-up & thanks as ever for your support!
To you YEAH YOU are to you a father daughter duo who let music invade the family context. Who let music dismantle the family car, using construct absurdity to redeem resented weekly Tesco shops and traffic jams. YEAH YOU are not who you said we are, but we are that inverted, and battery op. The content shifts depending on how many supermarket discounts we found. Known for their sneak-up picnic public invasions, perform mostly when uninvited but will always jump on chance to berate a strobe-cut stage, brawling electronic dirt pop, words and feet exert integral (instagram) distrust: you won’t hear what you see.
Why who? They only ever wanted to take back their solidarity with inertia. Creeping up behind a ‘don’t bite the hand that feeds you’ cultural climate, striving to unbuckle the gift economy. You let the lesson be yearn inappropriately. Warped into identity politics this could be an anti-formulaic deconstruction of the nuclear family and of psychic uniform, which normative roles serve to sustain. But in itself is just an improv life stream of the bottom 40: from 0 to -40. Diving in with an admittedly involuntary entropic approach, they provide something for all the family to enjoy/not enjoy.
Yeah You’s KRUTCH is out on Slip on 12” + DL in September
Gwilly Edmondez is the double-o-seven of collapse, the Smiley of debacle. Where Elon Musk is forging into extraterrestrial space, Gwilly continues to unspool spoils mined from the interface between voice and its shadow. Under the rest of his real name, Gustav Thomas, he is one half of YEAH YOU. As either Gwilly or Gustav he collaborates regularly with Odie Ji Ghast (Impossibility Knox), Faye MacCalman (Kleevex), John Garner (Randy Wormhole) and Dallas Boner (Leap Wars). Gwilly was also a founder member of Radioactive Sparrow (est. 1980). Assuming a false identity he also goes undercover as an academic.
Gwilly Edmondez started using voice & dictaphone as a performance platform around the same time as People Like Us got going. This evening he will return from the frontline of dishonourably entangled traffic abuse to deliver an oldie-worldie voice & dictaphone set from, probably, a chair.
