I just listened to "Policemanoid" five times in a row. Talk about how great The Yummy Fur were and how every good band since totally ripped them off.

Didn't Franz Ferdinand do this already?

I listened to a 7" of 'Stereo Girls' the other day. It was better than I remembered. Where can you get their albums nowadays, though? Amazon seems to come up with nothing.

Where punk rock starts and ends?
Maybe if you listened to Liliput,
Your songs would find more friends."

Blasphemy!

Ryan WS (fffv), Thursday, 15 January 2004 02:18 (fifteen years ago) link

i can't find anything on the male nurse on the usual internet suspects. : /

are liliput good? i just allmusic-ed them and they're in esteemed company: the slits & the raincoats.

mac user sadly gareth : /

downloading that mp3 now tho & eyeing up that liliput/kleenex reissue on amazon.

cozen (Cozen), Thursday, 15 January 2004 02:25 (fifteen years ago) link

The Yummy Fur were excellent.

Search: Nightclub LP and Kinky Cinema CD (59 minute long 60 track! compilation)

Destry: Sexy World LP

Also worth a punt if you like the Kleenex/Lilliput thing were The Yummy Fur's contemporaries Lung Leg.

i second the male nurse being way better - some of my favorite 7"s ever

Ha -- listening to Kinky Cinema, trawling thru the archives for YF discussion, and I come across Douglas' post just as "Liliput" starts playing!

What?? That's crazy talk. Austin, TX please?

city worker, Monday, 16 November 2009 15:09 (nine years ago) link

Awesome! Brian and Paul, celebs though they may be, may be surprised at John's pulling power after the show..

Tracer Hand, Monday, 16 November 2009 15:48 (nine years ago) link

should i not have sold my yummy fur LPs and CDs?

figuratively, but in a very real way (amateurist), Monday, 16 November 2009 20:05 (nine years ago) link

If I'm unable to get into the Glasgow gig due to Sleazy's being swamped, then I'll be deeply miserable.

Yeah I went to that one, it was a fun gig.

Are the 1990s any good?

Colonel Poo, Saturday, 16 January 2010 13:45 (nine years ago) link

Pretty boring imo and nothing like The Yummy Fur really

i swear on my life i feel so powerfull (musically) (DJ Mencap), Saturday, 16 January 2010 14:15 (nine years ago) link

I saw them play a couple of songs at a gig a few years ago but cannot remember a thing about them.

Colonel Poo, Saturday, 16 January 2010 14:21 (nine years ago) link

The 1990s are poppier, less Fall-y

Amazing, but wish they would tour the UK, one of my 3 favourite bands and never seen them live

Was expecting the comic, but Chester Brown went kinda nuts anyways.

Jade Green from Lungleg has just uploaded this brilliant footage from I think 94 or 95

Also I'll be seeing them live in just a couple of weeks!

Don't they have a message of singles and whatnot that's uncollected? Would love a comprehensive sweep up of that stuff.

Gerald McBoing-Boing, Thursday, 10 October 2019 03:39 (one week ago) link

There's a career-spanning compilation coming out next week but it's an overall best of:

signing and gig at rough trade east on the 24th

koogs, Thursday, 10 October 2019 10:39 (one week ago) link

Circa 2005 there was talk of a compilation and reissues on Bada Bing records but nothing came of them. Shame, as they would have benefitted from the Franz Ferdinand mania of the time (I even remember seeing a photo of the YF in a tabloid article about FF). Would be nice if the singles are not all vinyl tips but they don't strike me as the sort of band who would look after their masters

PaulTMA, Thursday, 10 October 2019 10:42 (one week ago) link

rips

PaulTMA, Thursday, 10 October 2019 10:42 (one week ago) link

Yeah when I saw news about a release I was a bit annoyed it's just a best of. Most of their stuff is way OOP, I have a bunch of singles but only 1 album. My local record shop was playing the Sexy World LP the other day and I went and asked how much it was but it was their personal copy and not for sale!

Colonel Poo, Thursday, 10 October 2019 10:47 (one week ago) link

I might see if I can get to that rough trade gig though, it's pretty near my office and I am in the office that day

Colonel Poo, Thursday, 10 October 2019 10:49 (one week ago) link

i have the first couple of eps but don't recognise any of the track titles. (mainly because the eps had names that weren't track names. Kodak Nancy Europe, Music By Walt Disney But Played By Yuri Gagarin Thus a Political Record...)

wikipedia says there was already one comp - Kinky Cinema (Guided Missile CD, 1997) but discogs has no details.

koogs, Thursday, 10 October 2019 10:59 (one week ago) link

It is on discogs but you have to search for it, for some reason it doesn't show on the main Yummy Fur page

Colonel Poo, Thursday, 10 October 2019 11:45 (one week ago) link

Kinky Cinema has a lot of re-records on it, despite having a billion songs on it it's not even comprehensive of the band up that point

PaulTMA, Thursday, 10 October 2019 11:48 (one week ago) link

Off the top of my head (it's been years since I've heard it), tracks from this EP and later singles do not appear in their original superior forms

PaulTMA, Thursday, 10 October 2019 11:53 (one week ago) link

That one is on the Seven Unlucky Sevens Slampt compilation, which I do have!

Colonel Poo, Thursday, 10 October 2019 12:00 (one week ago) link

So happy to see interest in The Yummy Fur.

Kinky Cinema is fantastic, but does include many re-records / alternate versions, it isn't at all a comprehensive selection. (Most egregious omission for me is 'Typical of Boys' which I've uploaded to Youtube)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fCVdV3Pe5_s

There is a comprehensive TYF fansite here which has a proper discography.

http://www.mcgazz.co.uk/yummyfur/

I've been trying to get hold of everything in one form or another in order to put together a proper compilation for myself, would like to share it on here but right now nothing is available to buy and nothing is on spotify, only a few things on Youtube too, so ideas welcome. If people can make decent rips of the early EPs that would be great too of course.

mfktz (Camaraderie at Arms Length), Thursday, 10 October 2019 12:05 (one week ago) link

I was at that Lungleg Slampt show but sadly there aren't any crowd shots so I can cringe at how dorky I look

Animal Bitrate (Raw Patrick), Thursday, 10 October 2019 12:08 (one week ago) link

I found this second hand in Monorail a few years ago. Contacted John and he said someone made a bunch of them for the band members so someone must have sold their own copy.

PaulTMA, Thursday, 10 October 2019 12:20 (one week ago) link

Amazed by that, it even has 'This Is Andrew Sinclair' which I have never been able to find.
OTOH it has a few duds and no 'The Career Saver' which is imo the best thing they ever recorded.
Still 9/10 would very much like to hear.

mfktz (Camaraderie at Arms Length), Thursday, 10 October 2019 12:28 (one week ago) link

From memory it was all good rips at the correct speed etc. Would be happy to share

mfktz (Camaraderie at Arms Length), Thursday, 10 October 2019 12:49 (one week ago) link

Ditto, I'm geraldmcbb (at) h0tmail d0t c0m

I was hoping that fan site discography would detail which tracks were re-recorded on "Kinky Cinema", anyone have that info?

Camrade - I have mp3s of the Supermarket 7", email me for them.

It's sometimes hard to tell, since they mess with titles, but here's what's unavailable anywhere:
The Grand Monophonic Yum Yum - from their self-titled cassette
Night Club - from Babies In The Cockpit split cassette

Are you the TMATMATMA on youtube who put up the 1998 Yummy Fur show at King Tuts ages ago? If so, thanks!

Paul - thanks for sharing all this stuff! Listening to "The Walt Disne Murder Club" comp, damn they should release this for real so I can pay them!

Is it just me or is "Mondo Coyote" only coming out of the right channel?

Gerald McBoing-Boing, Tuesday, 15 October 2019 20:20 (five days ago) link

Fuck I forgot about this, downloading now, quite excited.
