Feeling a bit camera shy


The perfect rocksong has been written ages ago. Copied, interpreted, arranged and played in a zillion different ways. A catchy popsong is a cliché on its own; the trick is to interpret, arrange and play that cliché as creative as possible. When kicking in this open door, do it with an unexpected and fierce kick. Sing it like you mean it and go for the whole nine yards.

With this spirit Nine Yards works on a solid live reputation since 2001. Without one official record release but with lots of humor and good clean fun they work on an impressive list of gigs throughout the Netherlands. Word of mouth brings Nine Yards from bars and small clubs to summerfestivals and venues like Paradiso and Melkweg. The in-your-face-sing-a-long-rocksongs are radio friendly: the band gets to play live at 3fm, a popular nationwide radiostation. Deejay Claudia de Breij won't hide her love for the songs. All this positive attention leads to another highlight. Playing a show for their biggest crowd ever, on the Museumsquare in Amsterdam at 'Bevrijdingspop' (Liberation Day festival) in front of a couple of thousand of people.

Summer 2005 the band recruits a new bassplayer an this injection of new blood results in a bunch of new songs and a refreshed overall sound. Currently the band is working on a 4 or 5 song ep: a bunch of edgy, guitardriven songs wich somehow finds the balance between alternative and popular rock. Catchy tunes with harmonic vocals from a stainless steel throat.
From the heart.
In your face.
Hell yeah.
