    The Yardbirds are a classic blues rock band who came out of retirement in 1992 after being inducted into America's Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Their high quality music speaks for itself with hits such as 'For Your Love', 'Heart Full of Soul' and 'Shape of Things'. The Yardbirds are: Jim McCarty (drums), Ben King (lead guitar), Top Topham (rhythm guitar), Andy Mitchell (lead vocals/harmonica) and David Smale (bass guitar). They are joined by Some Velvet Morning, who first came to the attention of the music press with their 2007 debut album, Silence Will Kill You which was nominated for XFM Album of the Year. Following radio success in the UK and France, ‘How To Start A Revolution’, taken from the band’s second album Allies, recently featured in Irvine Welsh’s Filth and is set to appear as the main title for a new feature Two Days In the Smoke, starring Matt Di’Angelo from BBC’s Hustle. http://www.theyardbirds.com http://www.somevelvetmorning.co.uk
