ABOUT THE BAND
Simon Yorkshire (singer), Chris Essex (bassist/synthest/effects monger) and Iain Hounslow (flautist/guitarist/synthist) are a London-based musical trio called Yorkshire Vs Essex.
Their songs present international narratives concerning everything from Japanese castratresses to Sheffield murderers to Denis Thatcher to She-Ra...serenaded by music that even birds could not pigeonhole.
Yorkshire Vs Essex are Influenced by the ilk of Robert Wyatt, Current 93, Scott Walker, Miles Davis, Aphex Twin, Bjork, Death Grips, Autechre, Nick Cave and Iannis Xenakis - without sounding much like any of them...
‘Dismembered Tales’ is their debut long player, which will be released into the wild by Crushing Objects Records on Vinyl on July 5th.
