Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Bradley Torreano
Yo-Yo a Go-Go 1999 is a collection of performances from the Yo-Yo a Go-Go festival in Olympia, WA. Heavily influenced by the local K Records and Kill Rock Stars scene, the lineup is filled to the brim with quality indie bands who cover everything from simple pop music to political punk rock. There is no shortage of good music on the album, but the highlights include Bratmobile's driving "Kiss and Ride," Sleater-Kinney's tense "Banned from the End of the World," Loud Machine's sparse "Gimmie Some Noise," and especially Mirah's delicate "Engine Heat."

The oddest thing on the album is the last track, a crowd rendition of Negativland's banned "U2" that literally consists of the crowd chanting Casey Kasem's swear-filled tirade (which was sampled on the original song) without the band performing it. There is something for everyone on this wonderful live album that really manages to capture the spirit and feel of the concert. To anyone looking for a good sampler of some of the unheralded gems in the independent music scene, this is a great view into a scene that deserves more attention.
