Image: 1600314 Down the road, South of Witch Mountain and across the pond, there's an uproar in the distance, a sonic demolition of sorts, and it is - what else? - GLORIOUS rock 'n' roll. We're thrilled to introduce the thunderous, bruise-blue, screeching dissonance of YAK to the Church of Third Man, who have already whipped up totally frenetic and drastic yelp all across the UK.

Their latest EP (produced by Pulp's Steve Mackey) stateside, featuring the sloppy, sludgy, searing single ''No'' with MASSIVE guitars, cantankerous drums, and a defiant, vox maelstrom. It's gonna gnarl through your speakers and bludgeon you with pure nihilism fuzz. Following ''No'' on the A-side is ''Alas Salvation'' a song so chewed up and spit out it could pass for The Upholsterers covering DNA. The B-side ditches the bulk of the grit and instead keeps things icy, mellow, and lonely with ''Out on a Limb.'' It's a stately and necessary respite till you flip the wax and strap back in for the A-side.

PLUS noted artist and photographer Nick Waplington has copiously tackled the cover art. It's beautiful and violent use of color are a welcome and complimentary addition to this package.
