“There's acuity, pathos and wit, deadpan storytelling over
catchy, snaking riffs and relentless grooves” - The Guardian
“Yard Act have cemented themselves as one of the most
exciting bands on this Green earth” - So Young
Having sold out their first two 7”s in double quick time, and in response to huge demand, Yard Act have compiled their first four tracks on Red Ash vinyl, limited to a run of 1500.
Yard Act formed in Leeds in late 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.
Yard Act’s rise since arriving in March 2020 with debut track ‘The Trapper’s Pelts’ has been nothing short of extraordinary, even without the opportunity to showcase
their incendiary live set. Their first releases last year proved an instant hit with national newspapers (The Observer, The Times, The Independent, and The
Guardian) and radio stations (BBC Radio 6 Music (‘Fixer Upper’ and ‘Peanuts’ were both daytime playlisted), BBC Radio 1 and Radio X) alike.
