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…
