Yeti
Never Lose Your Sense Of Wonder/Working For The Industry
(Moshi Moshi Music 28/03/05)

A cruising and upbeat AA single that encompasses snippets from various genres such as skiffle, garage rock, folk, anti-folk and Mersey beat, but also exudes enough individuality to hold Yeti out as bright and bold newcomers. The two A sides are catchy and will have you shuffling around the room like bargain hunter, as the topics of emotional integrity and exploitation are tunefully summarized.

Yeti - Never Lose Your Sense Of Wonder/Working For The Industry - Single Review

Lurking behind the melodic and endearing front of this John Halsall led cockney quintet is a strange and shocking B-side; ‘Midnight Flight’. Halsall’s vocals take on a longing and quirky narrative. With the aid of a haunting, yet melodious accompaniment Halsall takes us on a dark journey through the mind of a sleepwalking serial killer. The song via the lyrics contains a trickle of irony running through it like blood:

“Last night I ate the heart of a girl of just age two,

and when her mother found her you should have heard her coo.

Oooohhh, my little baby killed by someone crazy;

Let’s hope it’s just a phase he’s going through.”

This number is as shocking, yet entertaining as a merger between The Jerry Springer Show, Shaun of the Dead and Big Brother. Yeti has descended upon us and it is going to be nigh on impossible to ignore them.
