Yeah Yeah Noh - Leicester Square (The Best Of...)
One of the 80s' most underrated bands, pitched somewhere between the spiky post-punk wit of the Nightingales ("social surrealism", as I believe the NME termed it back then ) and the jangly bedsit melancholia of the Loft, but with greater songwriting skills than either. Not only that, their singer was even kind enough to post on HH thanking me for the review I wrote of this compo on Unsung.

I don't like them as much as The Nightingales, but they definitely had their moments, and Beware the Weakling Lines was one of my fave singles at the time. And not just because it mentions the obscure 60's Bolan track The Lilac Hand Of Menthol Dan!

Although YYN were Leicester based, the singer had gone to school in these parts in North Wales and was a big mate of friend of mine - who's claim to fame incidentally was that he sang backing vocs on YYN's Peel session recording! ; )
