Yell - O - Yell. Shoot the truth E.P. (1982)


This is an excellent piece of art from the greek post punk scene back at the '80's. Yell O Yell was one of the best bands and this 7 inch record was the first, both for the band and Creep Records, the most important independent greek label ever!
Yell O Yell created an almost unbearable darkwave/blues sound later (Funtime E.P. at 1983 and Hello Hell LP at 1984), heavily ifluenced by Birthday Party and Nick Cave, but still the personality of the band is alive and kicking, proving that the Birthday Party influence is just the start for a trip into hell combined with great music!
The band (after Creep Records disbanded at 1987) had another LP called "13" at Smash Records (all these records are rare today and very expensive).

At 1990, the leader and singer of the band, Fill Scars, died and the band passed to history...
But the records stay, to remind this hidden diamond of the greek post punk scene...
