You Am I

~ Group

Annotation

Aussie rockers synonymous with the 'rock and roll is back!' and 'mid 90s indie rockers' tags should need no explanation to any Triple J listener. Their breakthrough hit circa 1995 'Berlin Chair' made Australian audiences think a little differently about their own music scene and suddenly rock was accessible, achievable and most of all, enjoyable again. Berlin Chair also had some success overseas.

A stripped-back 3 piece of Tim Rogers (guitars/vocals), Andy Kent (bass) and Rusty Hopkinson (drums), You Am I are known for kick-arse live shows full of banter, ad lib, Keith Townsend-esque windmills and 60s inspired rock and roll. Roger's side efforts include the country twang of Tim Rogers and the Temperance Union and his first solo release What Rhymes With Cars and Girls. They became a four-piece with the addition of Davey Lane (guitar) of The Pictures in 2001.

Despite ARIAs, gold records, playing Lolapalooza and rock star mates such as the Gallagher brothers (Oasis), success has had lament for the band and singer/songwriter Tim Rogers. They've released virtually every album on a different label, had punch ons in airports with TV stars. Through highs and lows, YAI are known to their fans as uncompromising, iconically Australian and a band that will never contrive a hit single to keep a label happy.
