In 2009 we reissued the Natural Yogurt Band’s first platter – Away With Melancholy. Originally released in a limited run of 1000 pieces by Gerald “Jazzman” Short, those records quickly disappeared and the Jazzman himself had no plans to offer another helping. The result? An audience searching for psychedelic “music library” vibes from the golden era of the 60s and 70s meticulously recreated in the new millennium were left starved.
Two years later, the Band (really former Little Barrie drummer Wayne Fullwood and Miles Newbold) presents to you another platter of delights: Tuck In With… The Natural Yogurt Band. With their sophomore album, Fullwood and Newbold serve up more of what made the Natural Yogurt Band’s debut so special: quirky irreverence abounds, but the band has expanded their menu to include a influences from around the globe.
This album is presented in double 10’’ gatefold LP format, and a “mini-LP” version on CD. Both jackets are paste-on, thick-cut cardboard cases covered by die-cut OBI strips, all placed within a plastic sleeve.
Although we reported differently earlier, due to production problems Tuck In With… The Natural Yogurt Band will be released worldwide on March 8th, 2011.
