Almighty promoters Wandering Oak are back at it again with another brilliantly unique line-up at Cobalt Studios on Sunday 13th March. Providing sonic mastery are YĪN YĪN, hailing from Maastricht, Netherlands, who have a track record of brilliant releases on Bongo Joe Records. The eclectic quartet grew from an experimental jam session into something of an accidental band (member Yves Lennertz states they simply “[wanted] to just release a tape cassette for our friends”). 150 shows later, the band have settled on a unique concoction of disco, funk, psych and traditional Southeast Asian music. Upcoming release The Age Of Aquarius is an eclectic serving of groove and left-field delight that builds on the dusty wonders of 2019’s The Rabbit That Hunts Tigers.

Support comes from the Mancunian Moondog and master of analogue electronics Paddy Steer, whose wholly unique approach to live performance has to be seen to be believed; he’s a one-man band of psychedelic, eclectic wonder who is no stranger to the Ouseburn. It’s another killer line-up from Wandering Oak, who never fail to deliver gigs that are as unique as they are enthralling. Fantastic stuff as always.

YĪN YĪN and Paddy Steer play Cobalt Studios, Newcastle on Sunday 13th March.
