I'm having a bit of a Faithless day

Okay, I'll promise to stop going on about Faithless and 'To all new arrivals' after this. But I just love that being a parent has been such a muse to their new music. As a mum, I can totally relate to the lyrics on 'I hope' and the little kid's voice on 'Music matters' melted my heart. So big up to all the mums and dads out there! May we all be so inspired by this, the hardest job on earth. Enjoy your little angels!

For Immediate Release

Presenting YIDCORE ( a punk-rock troupe from Down Under. Crossing the genres of Punk Rock and Yid motifs, this Punk group will blaze the New York scene next Monday. "Yid", the diminutive, refers to the Jewish background and artistic well, from which YIDCORE draws, then heats up to flame!

Hitting the Independent Punk Scene in 2000 with the boutique indie label Swell Records, they have toured internationally rocking CBGB and the Knitting Factory December 2001 and again in June 2002, They have received open plays from CBGB, and are a mainstay at the hottest clubs in Israel, Australia and in US cities New York, New Jersey, Philadelphia, Detroit and Chicago, YIDCORE routinely brings in crowds of 1000 a night.

With viral explosion on the Internet, Yidcore spawned the Triple J Net 50 hits “Wind Beneath My Wings” (reached number 3 and stayed in the top 10 for 8 weeks) and “You! Toilet Wall! Me! Marriage!” (peaked at number 5). The album was voted into the Top 50 albums of 2005 on Triple J’s Short Fast Loud program by Australian fans

Fusing the imagery of Sacramental wine and more sentimental Jewish symbols such as bagels and Hummus, Bram Presser the vocalist uses a Shofar, the traditional Ram's horn, presenting a wailing swilling contradiction of the high minded religious sensibility with low-brow hard core punk shakeup.

With Michael Slonim at guitar, Tim Vogtherr at bass, and Rory Kelaart at drums this group will be turning over the tables and bouncing the chairs off the walls, with Yiddish Chutzpah!
