Yellow6 NEWS 24 April 2010

Just back from an enjoyable and successful trip to play in France and Belgium, 3 of the shows being with Dirk Serries’ Microphonics project (highly recommended). Thanks to everyone who made it along to the gigs. I managed to survive the volcanic ash chaos by using EuroTunnel and had no problems at all… aside from a hotel cock-up after the Gent show resulting in my sleeping in the car at a service station on the E40 near Brugge. Some photos from the gigs are on the website (and MySpace / Fakebook).

I returned to boxes of CDs… CUT is here. All pre-orders were sent out during the week…huge thanks to those that ordered in advance. Hope you enjoy the 2 CDs. to those who haven't ordered yet...

CUT CD available NOW…

The new album looks and sounds great (ok, so modesty deserts me here but I’m really pleased with it).
It is available NOW from the Shop page at and all copies ordered direct from here come with the bonus CD un/CUT (while stocks last). Please support Yellow6 and help make future releases possible by buying it direct. Thanks.
CUT will be available in stores and for download from iTunes, eMusic etc. in May 2010. Bonus tracks will not be available anywhere else.

here's what the sleeve looks like:

and the disc(s):

Live recordings on the website…

Back to the gigs in France and Belgium…. A couple of live recordings from the show at le Quilit Quilit in Bethune have been uploaded to the yellow6 page at Soundcloud and are also linked from the site

Plane A Rium radio session…

Also from the trip to France, I recorded a radio session / interview with Dr Adams for the Plane A Rium show on Radio Scarpe Sensee. This will be available online to stream here: the session, recorded live in the studio, includes 5 songs: Egg, norwest Passage, 20.1.10, 1000 Sunsets, Cut#4

Resonant Records sale…

The resonant label is having a sale and all available CD releases are now £5 inc postage to UK (a bit more for overseas postage)… this includes the Yellow6 album Painted Sky (2007). Get it here:


The Beautiful Season Has Past (3 CD retrospective) is no longer available through Cargo distribution, but copies are available either from the Y6 web site or direct from the label . Check out the 3CD AMP collection while you’re there.

That’s all for now

CUT delay / gig update France+Belgium


first of all, many thanks to those who have pre-ordered CUT from the website. About half the available copies with the bonus CD have gone but there's plenty still available. Order by PayPal at\shop.php (and buy up some back catalogue while you're there!) or email to if you would like to pay by any other means or have any questions.

Official release date in stores is 10 May 2010 (or maybe a little later) but copies will be shipped out from the web orders as soon as available. This was supposed to be this week, but the manufacturer have told me not to expect delivery before 20th April so a slight delay. Copies of the bonus CD un/CUT have arrived in record time (huge thanks to Enconahead) and all pre-orders will be sent out as soon as stocks arrive. Hoping Breed Media will come through with a delivery but this week, but they didn't give much hope on the phone on Friday :-(

more info when i have it, unfortunately this mean i won't have copies for the gigs in France and Belgium (below)

Here are the full details for the gigs - note change of venue for Ghent

hope to see some of you there.
