Putting the "Oi!" into "Oy Vey!", these young, loud & snotty Australians rip out punk rock versions of Jewish classics.
Rumored to be the product of a brief but strangely intimate liaison between Mel Brooks and Sid Vicious in the late 1970's , YIDcore spent most of their formative years dodging paparazzi and eating chicken soup before discovering references to punk rock hidden in the Bible Code (the book that is, not the code itself). They immediately discarded their rabbinical aspirations, shaved their beards into mohawks, spiked them and started the band that one commentator has noted will see them go 'straight to Hell'.
With a repertoire that ranges from holy liturgy to Fiddler on the Roof and even South Park, YIDcore hold nothing sacred. Indeed, they have often been referred to as the Hebrew Me First and the Gimme Gimmes.
YIDcore's self-titled debut album is rumored to be the official soundtrack for the opening ceremony of the Third Temple. If you don't think you can wait until then, act now and buy the album - they also make great gifts! It's available now on Swell Records.
