Occupying the sonic ground between The Cribs and Pavement, Sir Yes Sir are Manchester's unsung alternative rock heroes. I caught them live earlier this year at The Soup Kitchen, where they showcased their excellent demos with some added pep provided by live drumming and a greater emphasis on their warming distorted fuzz.
SYS appear on the forthcoming Across The Pennines compilation (numero 6), new material is recorded and currently being prepared for myspace streaming with a record planned for August. Zing! Oh, and on their blog they've taken a pop at Manchester's premier faux-indie careerist nauseaters The Ting Tings, what more do you want?
