This has been a big week for the United Kingdom. The people of Scotland voted in a historic referendum to decide whether or not they wanted to become an independent country. As you no doubt heard about in the wider media, the vote was split 55/45 in favour of remaining in the Union with the other home nations. We didn’t want to let such a momentous event in our nation’s history go by without some acknowledgment, hence why we’ve made a Sunday Spotify Slaylist of some of our favourite Scottish bands.
Yashin are an unsigned post-hardcore band formed in Glasgow, Scotland in 2006. School friends Paul Travers and Andrew McShane founded the band together, along with Paul McShane, who was later replaced by Lewis Millen, as well as Michael Rice and David Beaton.
The band name originates from the football player Lev Yashin, founding member Paul Travers was nicknamed after the footballer and the name was used for the band.
In 2007 they released their first EP Pay To Play, which contained 4 songs. Read more on Last.fm
Yashin on Thrash Hits
November 11th, 2012
Yesterday the Vans Warped Tour made its first return to London since 1999. We didn’t go. We do know some people who did go, and their reactions on Twitter ranged from “Oh my God! Onesies everywhere!” to “Lasted just an hour at Warped”. We know that (some) of us here at Thrash Hits have a reputation as being surly No Fun Club-types, but by gosh, did we not see this as a challenge to make a listenable Sunday Spotify Slaylist about it.
Oh God, did we try.
