Hiya Yashin..For all the Teen Spirit readers out there tell us abit about yourselves. –
We are Yashin. A heavy rock/alternative band from Glasgow, Scotland. We have been a band for around 3 or 4 years and have just released our second album ‘We Created a Monster’.
What genre of music would you put yourselves under?
And what has been your career highlight to date?
Touring the UK and Europe with Limp Bizkit, Kev even got to get up to sing with them, they’re his favortite band of all time so it was mind blowing for him, lovely people still making crowds go insane, great lessons learned all round.
Many say touring is all about the 3 Bs.. beer, babes and bad places to sleep.. What has touring really been like?
As the band has progressed and grown touring has became more comforitable. However regardless of sleeping in nice hotels or on someones cooker, yes cooker..its always been fun. We are still serving our apprenticship but would like to think the tougher times are behind us.
Your favourite venue/place/festival you’ve played?
If you could collab with one person/band who would it be and why?
It would be Will.i.am….we need some of that vocoder shit in our tunes…thats what’s missing! Oh and he could hook us up with Cheryl Cole, just maybe!
When you boys are jamming does the songs come naturally or does it take a while to really get the sound your looking for?
Alot of bands ‘jam’, we’re not a blues band! When we hit the studio to work on a new song we have our parts worked out already. We tend to do the core of the writing at the bedroom stage. Those in bands will know what we mean.
If you could plan your destiny where would you lead yourselves to?
Getting the band to a level where Yashin is a household name. Everyone knows who Guns n Roses and Metallica are, thats the dream.
Any embarrassing things we should know?
Andy as currently taken up Yoga. He is about as flexible as and iron bar!
Why you love Teen Spirit?
because we heard you guys think our new album is better than Elvis.
What do you want to say to all your fans and supporters out there?
Basically without being corny, thanks for all the support thus far. Please keep up the support and keep this band going. And make sure you grab a copy of the new album either from theyashin.com or itunes. If you dare to download it illegally we shall be sending Andy Mcshane(bass) and Chris Jericho round to sort you out….remember Andy does Yoga!!!
