It’s difficult interviewing a band with a mission statement. When they’ve set it all out so neatly it seems a little bit cheeky to probe and question their artistic intentions.
That’s just what I did when I decided to talk to Jona Bechtolt of YACHT about their new album “See Mystery Lights” and their upcoming tour. […]

Tom Watson (Deep Sht) described SEX BEET as “quite a find, a wonderfully nasty little garage rock band” after he put them on at The Old Blue Last [Fucking in the Street] last week. He’s right.
A two part Lusts one part William shakedown, they’re naughty rather than nice – snarling over dirty noise, one tantalising […]
