℗ 2015 The You Am I Set Description:
• Legendary rockers You Am I have their tenth album, Porridge & Hotsauce, all wrapped up and raring to go and amazingly, theMusic.com.au is doing the honours today ahead of its official release on Friday, 6 November via Inertia.
• Recorded in New York City, the album follows the release of the first single, Good Advices, a track which songsmith Tim Rogers says is about “throwing away the script and clinging to your imagination as the only guide. We’ve trusted our wits so far, and if it got us here, this hopped up and rarin’ to go, our wits done good”.
• With 10 ARIA Awards and the ability to inspire a generation, Rogers is right about that. Porridge & Hotsauce is sure to be another well–loved addition to the band’s catalogue, plus they're on the road for the rest of the year so you can catch it all live very soon.

• There’s nothing like a gleeful middle finger to signal an unrepentant return. Especially with the other hand flapping behind your ear and one Cuban heel stomping double time. “Good Advices” is just such a spectacular act of dancing–backwards co–ordination for Tim Rogers & Co: as sassy a set–opener as any in You Am I’s esteemed back pages.
• Recorded between Daptone HQ in Brooklyn and some garage in Melbourne’s suburban north, their pointedly unheralded first record in five years relishes that filthy, fuel–injected chemistry for three tracks before its first, more worldly diversions.
• That’s the Dap–Kings’ horns and soul chorus on “Two Hands”. A positively oceanic string section empathises with Rogers’ classic romantic desperation in “One Drink At a Time”. In “Out To the Never, Now” and “Buzz the Boss”, drummer Rusty Hopkinson and guitarist Davey Lane each rise to the occasion on thrashing cymbals and walls of power–pop harmony. In more familiar grooves, a metronomic guitar and close–miked strings place Rogers’ confessional “Daemons” smack in the “Purple Sneakers”/“Heavy Heart” lineage, and “Beehive” recalls some of the Carnaby Street pomp of Hourly Daily.
• The fact that all of this smacks more of wide parameters than comfy laurels or furtive experimentation is testament to a seemingly effortless energy which, after some 25 years, will kick your arse and refuse to apologise. • http://dev.rollingstoneaus.com/

• Centered around the prolific songwriting skills of singer/guitarist Tim Rogers, pop group You Am I is one of the most successful and internationally admired Australian bands of the ‘90s. At home, they’ve scored three number one albums, Sonic Youth and Soundgarden are counted among their admirers, and Silverchair even named themselves after a You Am I song. Their influences combine the Who, the Small Faces, the Jam, the Clash, and the Replacements. Rogers formed his first band while studying arts/law at the Australian National University in Canberra, before forming the first version of You Am I with his school friend Nick Tischler and Tim’s older brother, Jaimme, in December 1989. (The band name came from a conversation at a gig with a spaced–out fan spouting “You am I, I am you” philosophies.) Jaimme left the band after a fight with brother Tim at the end of 1990. Nick left of his own accord because he didn’t feel he could realize Tim’s vision musically. Ultimately, they were replaced by the group’s one–time sound mixer Andy Kent (bass) and Russell Hopkinson (drums), creating the classic three–piece rock lineup that has been the core of the band. Their breakthrough came at the inaugural Lollapalooza–style Big Day Out concert in January 1993. Lee Ranaldo of Sonic Youth was impressed enough to produce their fourth EP, Coprolalia, followed by eight days spent in Canon Falls, MN, where Ranaldo helped produce the band’s first album, Sound as Ever. Steeped in stripped–back guitar–riff pop delivered with Tim Rogers’ characteristic strained vocals, Sound as Ever won You Am I the 1993 Australian Recording Industry Association award for Best Alternative Release. (One of the album’s singles, “Berlin Chair,” later provided Silverchair with half its name.) During the following year’s Big Day Out concert tour, You Am I captured the attention of Soundgarden, who invited them to fill the support spot on the band’s next American tour. You Am I took time off during September 1994 to record another album at Green Street Studios in New York. Full of concise pop songs, Hi Fi Way earned You Am I the first of its Australian number one albums, plus a handful of ARIA awards. The ‘60s retro concept album Hourly, Daily followed and was recorded and produced locally in Sydney. In June 1998 You Am I released the return–to–basics album #4 Record. The following year, You Am I invited friends and fans to a warehouse in Melbourne and over two nights recorded the live album Saturday Night, ‘Round Ten. The group released its next studio release, Dress Me Slowly, in 2001. It featured new guitarist Davey Lane. The album was met with some success, with singles like “Damage” and “Get Up” hitting the Australian pop charts. Their next album didn’t fare as well; 2002’s Deliverance had a lukewarm reception, and several of the group’s members opted to pursue side projects over the next four years. Rogers released two albums with the Temperence Union, while Lane performed with the Wrights at the 2004 ARIA awards and appeared on the Pictures’ 2005 album Pieces of Eight. Rogers made headlines in 2004 when he got into a fistfight with Australian Idol host Mark Holden at an Australian airport. There were also reports that he was too inebriated to finish a set at that year's Falls Festival in Tasmania. Undaunted by these disruptions, however, the band went back into the studio in 2005 to record their seventh album, Convicts, which was released on Virgin the following year.
