Through May Yak will set off on a joint tour with the UK’s other most exciting new band The Big Moon (fka The Moon). To document this, we will release a limited edition split, the ‘Milked Tape’, which will only be available first at the shows.
The cassette’s a-side was recorded live by Yak and is a continuous 30-minute piece of music featuring a mix of covers (done from memory so often radically different from the original versions) ranging from Dr John and King Crimson to Faust and Lonnie Donegan as well as two unreleased Yak songs.
