Armellodie Records is proud to present Cock of the North, the new album from Yip Man or as oft referred, Yip Man of Scotland. Yip Man is one Al Nero and Cock of the North continues his escapades of joyful abandon, with the pervasive sense of fun that Nero has been channelling since his debut album, 2016’s Braw Power, and follow up, Pure, Zen Ken?, in 2019. Heralded as “a power-pop genius” by BBC Radio Scotland’s Vic Galloway, Yip Man’s talent for hooks and ability to sculpt complex rhythm and harmony into digestible chunks of unashamed pop is his herculean strength. Not least on Cock of the North’s three glorious singles, ’Evil Doppelgänger’, ‘What’s Your Secret?’ and ‘Dangling Carrots’. Three albums in, Nero is a well-seasoned songwriter and Cock of the North is further evidence that this is Yip Man at the top of his game; stuffed full of structural twists and turns, razor-sharp riffs, and deeply satisfying choruses. Be advised to spend some time in Yip Man’s world, a glorious mix of pathos, empathy, tragicomedy and, importantly, fun. As Nero proudly declares on the title-track, “this is the big one, you can’t ration fun, there is enough to go round!”

“Absolutely brilliant, really sharp, brilliant, razor rock tunes!” Tom Robinson, BBC 6 Music

“”Boasting an aptitude for edgy pop which could be likened to earlier Blur if Davy Henderson (of Fire Engines, Win and The Nectarine No. 9 fame) were on vocals” The Scotsman
