Ye Wiles from Tunbridge Wells in South East England are a lazy critic's worst nightmare - sometimes described as a post punk, indie, ska-core, violin/folk driven experimental left field low fi punk rock band. And that was the simple version! With a range of influences that take Ye Wiles from Gang Of Four and The Monochrome Set through to Fugazi and on to Rancid and even The Cardiacs - we have a totally schizophrenic punk band that could only come from the UK.
Building on a great underground live reputation, Ye Wiles can be seeing turning kids in Brighton into music crazed lemmings, as they scale 30 foot up the wrought iron structure of the Concorde 2 roof to launch themselves onto the 500 moshers below. Alongside this tour mayhem Ye Wiles have consistently recorded and released many self-funded releases on the DIY musicians resource Unlabel.These releases are all gone now although a few of the live favourites have been re-recorded and improved for this album.In a developing tradition and true DIY style the recording of "Smoothing The Horrors Of Indigestion" was only possible after Ye Wiles had built their own studio, the "Ramshackle Faculty Studio", in a converted shed. Ye Wiles' first act was to record this album; a truly DIY punk rock venture in these days of happy shiny mass-produced mass-market punk. Be prepared to be witness to a classic album of eclectic English eccentricity.
