Lizzie and the Yes Men, fronted by the Twiggy-esque Lizzie Holdforth, blend the cinematic sounds of Tarantino with the surf pop style of The Beach Boys and a good dose of British punk. Their style is reminiscent of The Supremes backed up by Mod mobsters circa 1964.
With their love for old school rock and roll, Lizzie and the Yes Men have combined this with an ability to write catchy Indie songs, giving their sound an interesting and modern twist.
Based in east London Lizzie Holdforth, Keir Greenaway, Brendan Bailey and Andy Goodman have performed in a variety of venues over the last 9 months. From House of Vintage, Brick Lane to the Embassy Club, Soho, Ronnie Scotts, The Macbeth and Vice Magazine's Old Blue Last to The Den (formally The End), the band' s growing creative ambition to put on a "proper" show has proven to excite audiences alike.
Their confident and vivacious performance delivers foot stomping popiness with synchronized dance moves and tailored style whilst maintaining a fun and effortless attitude.
Lizzie and the Yes Men were recently shortlisted for the Glastonbury Emerging Talent competition by Breaking More Waves blog. "Their riffs and twangs have a darker and edgy feel to them. We can imagine if Tarantino ever heard Lizzie and the Yes Men, he'd get them on his next film soundtrack sharpish".
About to embark on an Italian tour and release their first single "Broadwalk", Lizzie and the Yes Men are gearing up for an exciting 2011.
"What one gets is a strangely morish mix of the surf rock complete with catchy swing and harmonies a la The Beach Boys in a headlong collision with the angular pomp of ESG and Gang of Four"
