In 2020 the third album by this dutch “stonerblues” quartet – titled “Harakiri Blues“, will see the light…

The sound is again not your conventional blues album, but it does sound rocking, raw and direct. The album is jam packed with catchy grooves and riffs. Hard to pinpoint this unique sounding band, but it’s highly recommended for people who would like Nick Cave’s Grinderman mixed with 70’s Rock, Velvet Underground and Tony Joe White with slide guitar and harmonica on steroids…

The Mighty Ya-Ya had released their second album in 2016, titled “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!
