Yak Give Us A 'Smile'

This weekend we’ll be again be in Leeds for their Live at Leeds event, to get ourselves excited Yak take today’s Track of the Day slot.

The first song released from their forthcoming EP ‘Plastic People’ Yak are starting to hit all the notes we said they could as they live up to the hype and murder the naysayers. ‘Smile’ it’s our Track of the Day

Catalogue Yak next to Fat White Family et al but be careful, with that much grease, scuzz and electricity in one area you are bound to have a fire hazard.

‘Smile’ is a slithering sex-pest of a song as it snakes its way across the glass-shimmering dance-floor it reeks of cheap aftershave and the underlying stench of fear permeates the air. It then delivers like a blast of noise that would leave a pensioner in piss as we all gathered round to watch.

Basically it’s fucking brilliant and you can listen to it here.
