Right, gigs are back on for the time being!
We ain’t wading back into all this victorious over the virus like our noble leaders assured us we would be, but we can’t undo the choices they’ve made by doing everything about one thing and nothing about another.
Live events and social interaction are too important to too many people to neglect any longer. We all understand that, but the virus doesn’t, so we’re gonna be cautious as we dip our feet in again and do our best to make sure it doesn’t go away once more.
Everyone does have their part to play in this, and even if different festivals and different venues have different policies; If you’re coming to our show, we want you to try do what we’re asking out of respect for the band, our crew (BIG UP PETE!) and everyone else in the room, whether they’re working the event or attending the show.
Echoing what many other venues and promoters have said already, please do this out of respect for others. A lot of us aren’t scared of DYING from this virus, but many of us have to be cautious for family, work or any other number of reasons you won’t be aware of when you’re out there BREATHING like a FREAK. Beyond how it might personally affect us, out of respect for the vulnerable in our society, everyone who is in a safe enough position to get back out into crowded spaces should still do the decent thing where they can.
YARD ACT FACIST REGIME IS AS FOLLOWS
〖 FB EVENT 〗
Yard Act formed in Leeds in September 2019 when Ryan Needham found himself temporarily living in James Smith’s spare bedroom. The two had been pub associates for years, but their new living circumstances served as a catalyst for their friendship and creative partnership which saw them fuse James’ interest in spoken word with Ryan’s primitive proto-punk demos using an ancient drum machine and borrowed bass guitar. They released their first material in March 2020, coinciding with you-know-what, and with just three singles (The Trapper’s Pelts, Fixer Upper and Peanuts) and three gigs to date, Yard Act have staked out a territory all their own. Setting up their own imprint Zen F.C. they released their debut 7” which can now only be found for exorbitant sums on Discogs, they’ve scored two 6music playlists, and they’ve won a growing fanbase with their coruscating, narrative driven, spoken word dance-punk. Now girding their loins for a 2021 filled with new music, new recordings, debut novels, and (fingers crossed) plenty of live shows, Yard Act have most definitely marked our cards as one of UK’s most exciting prospects.
