Yolk biography
A Swiss project YOLK (please do not mistake for a French one of the same name) were founded in Basel in 1991 by Beat BURKHARD (bass) and Remy STRÄULI (voices, keyboards, drums, violin) as two cores of the ensemble. They, highly inspired by lots of progressive rock pioneers e.g. The Beatles, Van Der Graaf Generator, Gentle Giant, Yes, Rush, Magellan, King Crimson, Magma, EL&P, Led Zeppelin, Cream and so on (especially influenced by Gentle Giant), have thoroughly made it a principle to break conventional rules for new territories, different styles and sounds, with changing their formation frequently.

YOLK have released 7 albums and 2 EPs from 1993 until 2004.

4 stars Swiss band YOLK was formed in 1991 and throughout the decade its members were prolific creators and suppliers of advanced musical endeavors in their native Switzerland. In 1999 the band more or less disbanded, when permanent member Riechsteiner and prominent guest contributor Hugi decided to close this chapter of their musical history. The last recordings of the band from the same year seemed destined to be forgotten due to this, but thanks to a dedicated fan from Italy these were assembled and released as "Die Vierte" by the Swiss label Fazzul Music in 2003.

This recovered treasure from the annals of the Swiss band Yolk should be a sure-fire winner and natural acquisition for most who appreciate music of a challenging and adventurous nature, as long as diversity suits their individual tastes and they don't mind the occasional foray into jazzier realms at times. Those who generally enjoy eclectic music bordering on avant-garde will most likely be somewhat of a key audience for this disc, and I suspect many aficionados of the latter category should find this an interesting experience as well.

Thanks to DamoXt7942 for the artist addition.
