Yeah Yeah Noh - 12"s

Let's get back to some more In Tape releases. My second post on Yeah Yeah Noh. Posted the singles comp. 'When I'm A Big Girl' before but no comments left although it has been downloaded over 200 times.
The first one is the 'Another Side To Mrs. Quill' 12" and the title track is one of the best songs they ever did. 'Magic Roundabout Mix' is actually a remix of the title track. Weird to see a band like Yeah Yeah Noh doing such thing.
The 'Temple Of Convenience' 12" is the last release of the band before they broke up. Track 4 (a cover of The Beatles' song) is not by Yeah Yeah Noh but by 60's band The Psychedelic Filberts. They discovered the tape in the cellars of Barkby Road Studios. This song was recorded live in Hamburg and Yeah Yeah Noh liked it and wanted more information on The Psychedelic Filberts.
Side B of the 12" is one track divided in three parts. You can hear John Peel as they used samples of his voice while he announced Yeah Yeah Noh in his show.

I don't really have much to say except keep up the good work! Hadn't heard anything by Yeah Yeah Noh since she carted her copy of When I Am A Big Girl off to London about 20 years ago. Good to hear it again (and these 12"'s)

Always wondered what that version of rain was doing on there

Good to hear it again

Thanks for this; recently I turned up their cover of The Pyramids "Penetration" on an old tape of the Andy Kershaw show - it's the only thing I've ever heard by YYN but have always wanted to hear more... Theres a best of on Amazon - maybe my next stop. Thanks again!

Thanks for these, its been SOMETIME since I last heard them. Didn't they do a "proper" LP as well, I'm sure I owned one once (& perhaps still do!)? Great blog btw. IBx
