The Yellow Moon Band
The Young Gods
Yoshinori Hayashi
You’ve Got Foetus On Your Breath
Yo La Tengo

The Yellow Moon Band were It’s Jo And Danny plus the drummer out of Dodgy (don’t hold it against them). They made one album that was a full on psychedelic guitar freak out. Wish I’d seen them live.

The Young Gods are a Swiss industrial act who were early sampling pioneers. I remember when this came out over thirty years ago it was inconceivable to me and my school mates that there were no ‘real’ guitars on it. Blew our tiny childlike minds.

Yoshinori Hayashi is a Japanese producer I don’t know that much about, other than to say this is one of my favourite tracks of recent years:

Bit of a cheat to include You’ve Got Foetus On Your Breath, as it is just one of JG Thirlwell’s Foetus related names, but it is the one that is on the front of this 12”, which is one of the most gloriously bombastic bangers of all time. Absolutely legendary floorfiller in the glory days of Plymouth’s alternative club scene.

Yo La Tengo…well, it’s Yo La Tengo, innit
