close About Me

Me, Myself, and I
Remember the noise the Super Nintendo made when you sleighed it against your wall whilst taking a whooping at Mario Cart? If not, please allow us to introduce Fife's leading (well… ok, only) bleep-buggering 8-bit bandits Yoshi, an enigmatic musical collective heavily influenced by video-gaming, a vivid culture that Yoshi have melded, via 8-bit computer game samples, with their own melodic world of upbeat, three-part harmonies, analog synth and dirty guitar.

In the past few years, the Scottish music scene has evolved into something of a mighty beast and challenging to meet its expectations with something that’s truly original. These faceless creators strive to meet these challenges head on.

Yoshi’s vision based on Japanese video-game and culture; of sights and sounds dreamt of, visualized and brought forth to an expectant audience, ready for something bright and undeniably different. Crowding the stage like a funky free-style Happy Mondays, they fire off the likes of ‘Headphones’, which sees a kind of phat ass ghettoblasted beat the Beasties favoured back in '92, before a distortion doused guitar and deep bass grooves rattles its way in and announces their fleuro-punk arrival. A heady blitz of acid-house, Manga and Mega Drive digi-pop menace certify it's the maddest thing to come out of Fife since, well, forever…

  • SUNDAY MAIL REVIEW 24th August

    3/5 stars... yeah... the same as most of the other acts, including Sargeant, Biffy Clyro, Alphabeat etc...

    YOSHI
    Save The Children

    'The Fife band's happy, catchy tune sounds like the theme to a Japanese cartoon series. Imagine The Rapture and the Happy Mondays having been spending all their time playing Nintendo and Saga and you get the general idea.'

  • Drummer injury... he’s fine now

    Hi all, unfortunatly we had to pull out of playing Pj's Dunfermline on tuesday 12th August.

    Our Drummer was riding his bmx and fell of badly hurting his wrist. This was a gig we were all looking forward to being in our home town and we'd like to thank everyone who came to see us. It was a really good night in the end, the other bands were ace and it was a really good turn out. We hope to see you all at next gigs.

    On the positive, if not slightly lucky side, ian has almost fully recovered and all tour dates will be going ahead as planned.
