Bio

Download the new album "Kingdom of Fuzz" at http://yisyisyis.bandcamp.com YIS are two brothers Simon Fazio (Vocals/Guitar/Synthesizer) and Andre Fazio (Drums/Bass/Drawing/Mystique) along with one non-blood relative; Bronwyn Liroudia (Bass/Charisma/Catering/Mediation). They formed in Melbourne, Australia in August 2009. Simon and Andre have been playing together in various bands for the past decade. Bron is a ex-chef who now studies physics. Together they make something described as “the schizophrenic ghost of Alan Vega possessing someone with a narcissistic personality disorder who auditions for a Comets on Fire/Neu! supergroup.” Since making their live debut in October 2009, YIS have played at many venues across Melbourne and have hopped inside a hatchback to play shows in Sydney, Canberra and Adelaide. Their debut album “Kingdom of Fuzz” was recorded by Paul Maybury (from Rocket Science) at A Secret Locaiton in Fairfield, VIC in September 2010 and was mastered by Joe Lambert in NYC (responsible for Animal Collective’s “Merriweather Post Pavillion”, Deerhunter’s “Microcastle/Weird Era Cont.” and “Halycon Digest”, and Cheap Trick’s “Live at Budokan” amongst many others) in October, with artwork by Rick Froberg (of Obits, Hot Snakes and Drive Like Jehu).
