I've been to see these guys around 12-13 times at my local venue the Holy Toilet (or T Wells Forum). These guys are incredible and Schlauff hasone of the most original voices which he can hold true to when singing live. Ed is a legend by all means and is one of the most enthusiastic musicins on stage, Gabriel is also very cool and is also a nice person in my experiences with him in Criminal Recs in aforementioned town. Ginge is a great beat keeper. However, although this album is incredibly good, with highlights in Shuffle 2 and the classics Screenplay, Cry Wolf, In Appreciation and Leisurewear, the original two eps and MDS split if you can get hold of it are even better. This is were i'd like to point out person above me is wrong as this is their debut album. If you can manage to get hold of discontinued Fine Words and Think Aain Mr Swindler, buy them also. Different perspective on the music and better version of Leisurewear. Also, Fine Words has Sly Exit (a sin its not on the album) and Mr Swindler has Rawhide and Clone (can't believe nothing off original makes it on. Buy this and support them as we want them back as soon as possible! Guys I Love You!!!

Ye Wiles are a rather unusual outfit; they are the proud owners of a very old English sound, similar to ‘Zen Baseball Bat’. This is thespian Ska with hints of strings and traded vocals that leave you amused and overwhelmed as they spin tales of horror, woe and adventure. Such a wide range of vocal sounds and variations leave this record sounding fresh no matter how often you listen to it.
There is a very old styled flavor, not only in the sound but also the lyrics; ‘Won’t you think before you pencil in the bridesmaids, with their make-up and their dates, they’d make expensive ugly wives’. To say this record was eclectic would be an understatement, as it really does have a unique flavour almost verging on becoming a Jewish wedding band at times. Most evident as the strings flurry and deepen the sound in songs like; ‘The Face In The Cloud Smiles’. At times it can give off a rather harsh vibe that you may find yourself physically recoiling from but this is not too common and generally they keep the levels and time changes in check to maintain a smooth flow.
This reminds me of 1930’s London, most likely in the Jewish quarter, where all the jewelers’ shops reside. Of course, I was there merely in spirit, never the less the memory is fresh. It is a fast paced record in places and extremely danceable. You can imagine good old Leonardo jigging away to this on the Titanic, as it breaks into a very Celtic rhythm in tracks like ‘In Appreciation Of Zoltan Kodaly’. There is a definite sense of the urgent riffs and buildups of ‘At The Drive In’ throughout.
Ye Wiles are a band that have chosen to go their own way, perhaps losing any real chance at commercial success, at least to a degree.

Being blown away by seeing them live, naturally, I pre-ordered the album from HHN. Ye Wiles mix up distorted ska lines, choppy punk riffs complemented by a fiddle. Yes, a fiddle. This is what makes the Wiles so great, and unique among the monotonous ska/punk bands of today. 'Cry Wolf' is the first song song to instantly strike a chord with the listener, with a hugely infectious chorus and some awesome lyrics. Which is another highlight with the album - the lyrics are very well written, and another great thing is that they don't try to sound American, they're as English as... something that's very English.
'In Appreciation Of Zoltan Kodaly' starts off with a drum roll intro that bursts into some amazingly insane fiddle work, which breaks down into some more mellow parts mixed up with some dashes of heavy guitars. But that fiddle. That darn fiddle. Every time you listen to this album, you just wait in anticipation for when the next fiddle line kicks in, getting ready to get that foot tapping and that head nodding. Don't expect some mellow violins and strings, in a softer way, but instead some schizophrenic and high pitched squeals that just WORK, I can't explain it. Ye Wiles have made one of the most genre defying albums I've heard this year.
'Rush, Our Faces Follow' is a slower number, with heavy choruses, some jangly ska-like licks and some funky bass-lines.
'If You Don't Catch The Last Train Home It Won't Happen' is awarded the most infectious fiddle work award for the album, with a number that will stick in your head for a long while. Popping into your mind in the middle of the day.. just trying to figure out where that sound is from.. it's annoying you.. because you can't remember.. and then you remember, Ye Wiles of course!

Been following this band for a while now, they are amazing live and this album is their second. Its catchy,ska/punk with a fiddle. Never heard anything like it before, its unique and easy to listen to. A must for those who love the British ska/punk scene and want to support the little bands. Buy it...you won't regret it.

Since anyone who likes Ska enough to answer people when asked what kind of music they're into reply "Ska" have not the intelligence to define the misnomered Ye Wiles' sound (their actual name is 'The Gasped Breath-Embers of a Slain Vicar', and calling themselves 'Ye Wiles' supposedly since their inception was in fact a longterm publicity ploy suggested by their future label Sony, who will annonce their real name at the breakup gig, provoking an international outburst worth billions in free advertising which is intended to provide the band millions of pounds with which they will reform under the formerly assumed name "Ye Wiles", the aforedescribed masspublciity shooting them beyond the ranks of Cowellmade TV stars to the status of Super Group, and leaving all fans wondering whether this time they really are the Ye Wiles or if its all a big stunt, but said fans - even the mediasavvy types - will still spend all their spare credit on Wilesean merchandise, like so many musibungled sheep) I would like to say that, though the album did spark enough endorphins to make my chin feel psychophakically more remote than usual, it does impinge somewhat on their actual sound definition, which is (and I quote directly from the proverbial fiddlerhorse's mouth) "conceptually serendipitous". If you own any clothing that when you wear it makes you think "Sure, it's different; sure, it makes people stare when I walk down the high street, but I bought this shirt to express my inner self, and it does - they're just threatened because I'm secure enough to express me, I'm okay, I'm fine, I'm okay...Read more ›
