Laneous & The Family Yah make Mutant Soul and Croon Punk for your earholes. Alternatively cheerful, smooth and demented, James 'Laneous' Lane navigates his band through fiercely syncopated, occasionally bombast and otherwise wobbly grooves with his trademark falsetto croon and charming hip hop murmurs.
Bubbling up out of the Artisan hotbed that is Brisbane's West End, they've finely tuned their high energy and dynamic live show the old fashioned way -- through grueling trips up and down the East Coast, crashing on floors and fighting over DJ duties in the tour bus. L&TFY love touring. Although it's difficult to say whether they are more addicted to touring or recording. The past year or two has seen them grace the stages of Big Day Out, Parklife, Sunset Sounds, Peats Ridge Festival, Woodford Folk Festival, a National Regurgitator Tour and many other festivals amongst their nonstop slew of club shows.
Having inked a deal with iconic Australian label Creative Vibes (through whom they released 'Found Things' in October and are releasing the accompanying 'Found Things Collection' throughout 2011) Laneous & The Family Yah continue to landslide through Australia gathering with them a happy trail of smiling freaks and bewildered bystanders. 2011/12 sees them broaden their horizons with extended residencies planned in both Berlin & New York and a few other stops as they open invitations to extended Family Yah around the world.
