The Mighty Ya-Ya

The Mighty Ya-Ya has landed again, bringing its second album: “Magnum Sonus”.
And it’s a BIG, BIG, BIG sound indeed! Way heavier than its predecessor.

Garagerock with a twist, stonerblues or completely-over-the-top, call it what you want but the Ya-Ya tells it like it is: ever groovy, perpetually rockin’ and dripping with tons of soul…

Say what? Well, like QOTSA and John Lee Hooker recording to the same mic. Tom Waits in full Zulu-dress leading a seventies Afro-beat combo. Jack White and King Crimson thumping a one-chord rock opera with all amps turned beyond healthy and Arthur Lee Love disassembling “Stairway to Heaven” assisted by a gang of Cossacks.

Strap in and experience the Mighty Ya-Ya slammin’ its drums, rattlin’ its strings and blowin’ its reeds into orbit, disregarding a safe reentry into earth’s atmosphere. To ignorantly go where no man has gone before: 12 tracks of ferocious energy traveling the stratosphere at supersonic speeds.

So put that needle in the groove: here’s something that’s gonna make you move!

The Mighty Ya-Ya is a four headed monster, driven by a tight-as-a-vice drum and bass rhythm section, a harmonica player who’s not afraid to push the envelope and a guitarist who boldly goes where many guitar slingers have gone before.

The eponymous debut album gives the answers to the real important questions in life: “What would Black Sabbath have sounded like if Santana had joined them in 1971?”, “What if a harmonica was a real instrument?”, “What if Peter Green was in the Rolling Stones?”, “What if Johnny Cash was the leadsinger of Led Zeppelin?” and “Can you nail a fart to a wooden board?”

Grind your classic rock albums, add some universal danceable grooves, the firm but gentle grip of Mother Blues, bombastic big-band fury, a hint of kitsch and whoop: there’s the Ya-Ya’s sound. The Mighty Ya-Ya generates some truly original grooves by up-cycling the classic amplified sounds we all (should) love.

Aw….have you ever heard such nonsense?

But you get the picture…
