The Null Device

Yat-Kha

Yat-Kha are a band from the Siberian republic of Tuva who practice the Tuvan style of throat singing. They now have an album of covers of Western pop songs, including Led Zeppelin, Kraftwerk, Hank Williams, Bob Marley and Motörhead. The cover of Joy Division's Love Will Tear Us Apart, available for downloading from the page, is the greatest thing since those Portuguese-language David Bowie covers in The Life Aquatic With Steve Zissou.

They are also touring the UK in September and October.

the nightmares that cover is going to cause me are going to be exciting.

pick up Tuva.Rock if you can, it's pretty good fun (I found one last year in Goldmine on Nicholson St) - one co-worker described it as "laibach meets folk music".
