THE YELLOW MOON BAND:
The Yellow Moon Band, also known as YMB, are a mainly instrumental four piece band from the United Kingdom. The band is closely associated with the Green Man Festival in the Brecon Beacons, Wales.
In 2007 Jo Bartlett and Danny Hagan of It's Jo and Danny, guitarist Rudy Carroll and Mathew Priest of Britpop band Dodgy, following some experimental jams at Bartlett and Hagan's home in the Brecon Beacons, produced what they considered to be a new and exciting blend of folk and progressive/psychedelic rock, and a welcome change to the song-driven folktronica of It's Jo and Danny.
Moments of glory abound on this bright, funky and outstandingly groovy album. - **** Mojo
