Product Description

Yeti remain true to their musical roots with evident influences from the likes of The Velvet Underground and the Beatles. Quirky, bluesy, 60 s influenced acoustic rock. Lead singer John Hassall has a past that needs no real introduction, he was the bassist in The Libertines. John s effortlessly cool vocals are supported by Mark Underwood who plays guitar; likewise for Andrew Cannes and keeping the rhythm section in tact is Graham Blacow on drums. With their bluesy undertones and close harmonies there is nothing not to like about Yeti. Filling the gap left by disco punk they are a refreshing blend of reverence, style and pure talent and show just how stylish British rock music can be. With a sturdy disregard for the angular-centric, over-produced disco rock that has dominated London's music scene over the past few years, Yeti has stayed true to their original convictions and served audiences around the world with a much-needed dose of spontaneous, harmony-driven psychedelic pop. Critics have compared the band's sound to "early" Beatles, The La's, The Kinks, The Byrds, The Coral, The Zombies and Love.

I'll admit that I didn't come to Yeti as a new fan who just heard the music and had no idea who either John Hassell or The Libertines were; so like most listeners, my opinion may be somewhat coloured by my love of The Libertines.

The Legend Of Yeti Gonzales is the band's first album proper discounting previously released demos, singles, EPs and Japan-exclusives and as such a lot of the material has been heard before on other releases and just re-recorded for this 2008 album.

As an album however, Legend' is a strong effort that flows well from beginning to end and is sure to appease any fan who likes the band already, even if the material is familiar. The music has a positive and fun feeling, with a clear Beatles Influence and a sort of low-fi retro production style.

Highlights include the absolutely fantastic single 'Never Lose Your Sense Of Wonder,' which is the type of track that you can listen to over and over again without ever getting sick of, as well as the slow and menacing 'Midnight Flight,' and 'Sister Sister,' which every serious Libertines fan will know already.

Not all the material however has been made available earlier so don't feel that the album is an inconsequential release just because you have been a fan for a while now and if you haven't been following the band since the demos stage then there is a wealth of exciting new material to enjoy on this record.

Overall, The Legend Of Yeti Gonzales is definitely something that you should get a hold of it you like Yeti and certainly something that you should try at least once if you like summery sounding 60s inspired records or the more whimsical and fun side of John's previous band The Libertines, it is a very pleasant and enjoyable record indeed.

Yeti have been around for about four years now and like Babyshambles existed at the same time as The Libertines. Fronted by former Libertines bass player John Hassel, along with Mark Underwood on Acoustic and vocals, Andrew Déian Cannes on Electric Guitar and vocals and finally Graham Blacow on Drums. They have had a couple of singles out over the last four years but have, partly due to changes in line up and management, have only now got around to putting out a UK album (they have put out two in Japan). So here is my track by track review:

1)Obvious-Lee:
The album opens up to sound effects or radio tuning before the first song begins. The intro of song reminds of early Beatles. This is such a great track that sounds like it comes straight out of the sixties. There is a hint of California sun and has great harmonies. Great production values. 8/10

2)Don't Go Back To The One You Love:
There is a lot going on with on this track. It has a great tune with clever lyrics I really like the beat of this track. Combined with some whistling that sounds as though it comes straight out of A Fist Full Of Dollars. I like the raw edge to this song. The middle eight is inspired. It needs a couple of listens, but I have to say it's a great song. 7/10

3)Til The Weekend Comes:
Nice intro to this song, it is sung in a very soulful way and again I feel that this sounds also has something of a Beatles sound to it further more I would say it could come off Rubber Soul. I love the brilliant guitars on this song. I also hear a bit of a Libertines influence on this track. I love the drumming too. 8/10

4)Merry Go Round:
This is a great song with a wonderful tune with clever lyrics.

Yeti may always be known as that band with the bassist from the Libertines but with this album they deserve to be seen as a great band in their own right. The album sounds like music by bands that I grew up listening to as a kid, bands that I still love. Yeti's strongest point is their songwriting, something that is shared between three members, and you can hear the different influences. The album starts with the most Beatles-sounding track Obviously - most tracks written by Hassall tend to sound quite Beatles - and then moves on to the epic Don't go Back To The One You Love. It took a few listens but it's something of a masterpiece, like Captain Beefheart covering a CSNY song with a bit of Pink Floyd in the middle. Til The Weekend Comes and Merry Go Round have the most beautiful harmonies that will put a smile on your face. In Like With You is a poginant ballad that reminds me of Dolly Parton of all people. All the other tracks are great, I could go on and on. I really like Midnight Flight, the scary lyrics about a serial infant-killer and the way it goes from spooky guitars to a full-blown jam. Never Lose Your Sense of Wonder sounds like a classic already with the three part harmonies in the chorus, reminiscent of the Byrds and Hollies. One of those "feel good" summer songs. Libertines fans will notice Sister Sister, a track Hassall wrote for Legs11. This version is much more laid back, it still has the lofi feel but features a trumpet! There's also a strange, intriguing bonus track about Star Wars. Highly recommended and well worth a shot if you like 60s or early 70s influenced music (certainly at Amazon's price, I paid more at Zavvi before I saw this).
