Yellow6 late summer news....

hi all
some late summer news from Yellow6.
after a recent period of (relative) inactivity there is some exciting stuff happening over the next month or so....
first up:
Burn Again - Cathedral Transmissions 2xcdr
Limited to 50 copies in translucent hand made sleeve
Earlier in the year Jon (Yellow6) recorded a new track called 'Burn', titled after hearing news of wildfires in Canada. Although he wasn't too happy with the result, he did a new version, 'Burn Again' which came out well. Over the next few weeks he recorded it again, another 6 or so times with different guitars, effects, and each take being partly improvised, so they were all different.
As he couldn't choose a single one he really liked, he sent them all to me (David Newlyn) to create something from. I sent back a mix of the various versions, plus added instrumentation running at just over 40 minutes. He then put together his own mix of the various versions, plus another new one, to create a new mix of just under 60 minutes. Both of these mixes appear on this double cdr release.

(It is also the same title as an excellent track by Magazine that you should check out if you don't already know it)

yes, after a few shows in France earlier in the year, Yellow6 have two upcoming gigs:
Saturday 17th September is a daytime in-store appearance at Rough Trade Nottingham.  This features yellow6, alongside Nottingham guitarists Charlie Ulyatt (check out his fine CD Dead Birds on bandcamp), and Nick Jonah Davis.
Event runs between 2-6pm in the store.  CDs will be available to buy and each artist will do a full live set.
here's a link to the facebook event:

and... my second visit to the fair city of Wolverhampton.  The first was back in 2002 i think, and my fist Low gig.
this time around, it's an afternoon of ambient related music (Silent Strategies) on  Sunday 9th October, at the Lighthouse Media Centre, Wolverhampton, WV1 1HT, with music from Clusters / Jazzdefector / Mike Hatton / Russ Sergeant / Yellow6

more news in the autumn, possibly of new music, but that's all for now...
