TagYerit biography
Songwriter's Rich & Flo Newman started TagYerit in 1994 to infuse their joi de vivre vision upon the unsuspecting listening public. But even before the band could start, Flo had to build her electric guitar in the shape of a rabbit. Only then was it possible to bring their slightly off-centered view of the world to bear fruit.

Their first release Heavy Construction found critical acclaim with many reviewers and in 1996 was selected on Richard Johnston's top Editors Picks list, where he wrote, "full of the pure joy of words and music." Due to untiring online promotion of their first CD, Heavy Construction reached 6 continents. There are still a few copies available, but it is soon destined to become a collector's item.

In 1999 they released Tubeman which once again received many fabulous reviews, though with less time spent in promoting, didn't quite reach as wide an audience.

4 stars Songwriters Rich and Flo Newman, known as TAGYERIT (pronounced: Tag you're it) is once again back with another crazy weird release. I took TAGYERIT to my heart already with their first release "Heavy Construction" (1995), so it was with excitement I started listen to this new CD.

It's almost impossible to describe the music of TAGYERIT. It's like they're from another planet. If I should try to describe the music I would say it's a mix between B52s, David BYRNE, KING CRIMSON, TALKING HEADS and Frank ZAPPA, or a mix between blues, country music, folk, funk, fusion, jazz, pop, psychedelic and progressive rock. It contains excellent musicianship, many different time signatures, harmonies and loads of humor. One of the centerpieces are Flo's magnificent vocals that are very special, like a mix between Chrissie Hynde (The PRETENDERS), Joni Mitchell and Suzanne Vega. The other centerpiece is the guitar playing that is outstanding and in world-class.

The highlights are "Music Makers" (that has been downloaded from TAGYERIT's website over 1000 times since June), "Tubeman", "Wendy Bird", "Outlaw Radio Guy", "SciFi with Space Leprechaun appearance" and the funny closing track "Embarrassed (All true)" that is about embarrassing urination episodes taken from real life. Here's one verse "You lead cheers for basketball- team just broke a tie score / You screamed and you laughed so hard that you peed on the floor. Your shock turns to horror - time and space feel so stuck. As you watch the ref bend right on down and wipe it all up."

This is one of the most exciting CD's I've heard this year and it's got a great production. Check this unique band out!

4 stars TAGYERIT (pronounced "tag you're it) consists of songwriters Richard (bass, vocals, one $50 guitar note) and FloraLee Newman (guitars, vocals), plus drummer Patrick Lavery, and they are playing a music that is very hard to categorize. They call it "Quirk rock" and that is a very good description of this 13-song, outstanding, interesting, skillful, passionate, unusual, funny, brilliant, unique, beautiful, odd, different, surprising, unusual, wonderful, incredible album. I don't know if it's true, but TAGYERIT is said to only exist on CD.

I don't know TAGYERIT's influences, but I think I can hear traces of B52s, David Byrne, Devo, Lene Lovich, Talking Heads, Suzanne Vega and Frank ZAPPA. A mix between blues, folk, funk, jazz, pop, psychedelic and progressive rock with very good melodies. Many songs are despite the "quirkiness" really sing-a-long tunes. Just listen to "Hypnotease" and you will hum it for days. A special mention to the guitar playing that is exceptional and would appeal to all guitarists who listen to this album.

Flo's voice is really beautiful, but it might take some time before you'll get used to it. The album is growing with every listening. This CD is [%*!#]ing great, both musically and lyrically. From the first track, "Subway Surfing" to the last track "Pionic". The tracks are full of shifting rhythms.

The best tracks are "Subway Surfing", "Hypnotease", "Buried Treasure", "Adam and Eve", "Heavy Construction", "Wound Up", "Pionic", "Pointless Psychic Revelation", "Peddler", "The Boys", "Self Sabotage", "Amelia and All That Is", "Joy" and "Pionic". That's right, it's all the tracks, and I love them all. On top of it the production is great too. This is a really impressive album indeed.

I'll promise you that this album won't disappoint you. Check them out!
