The sadness of footsteps that beat out a tune,
The knowledge that death comes to all that’s in bloom,
The relief of raindrops that bring hope for change,
The kinship of laughter that says we’re all strange.
We’re are all fucked every one of us,
We’re all gonna die,
We are all dead, dead as dodos,
And we don’t know why,
We are all fucked; lifeless corpses,
We are alive; alive and useless,
And we don’t know why.
The feeling that burns you when you lay down to sleep,
The tissue that holds you when you sit down and weep,
Your office and laptop that gives you your wage,
Your daydreams are violent they withhold your rage.
Text from ‘We Are All Fucked’ by Yu

In case you live under a rock, and are not a lizard person(I have nothing against lizard people; I think they govern the world in a fair and just manner)tomorrow will see the release of the finest Spandau Synthpop album in the history of Spandau Synthpop, ‘We Are Sorry’ by the band I am so deeply honoured to be a member of, #Yu. Which is us. The band.
To entice you further and to ensure you buy the album I have a few things to share. First I will offer you the following preview of the album
‘We Are Sorry’ – Album Preview
‘We Are Sorry’ contains 10 songs and 4 bonus tracks. The songs contain words and music. Some of the words are Polish words. And some of the words are English words. There is almost no silence whatsoever. The album may or may not contain a significant amount of Synthpop of the Spandau variety. You are welcome. But ‘We Are Sorry’.
To further convince you that you should buy our album I must tell you that if you don’t you will probably be sad forever and die alone. Alternatively I will tell you an anecdote.
The most tiring thing about being part of a Spandau Synthpop sensation is the amount of press you have to do to promote the album. Here is a short video of me talking about the exciting moment I was offered the opportunity to join #Yu recorded exclusively for the Japanese market –
Don’t forget to order ‘We Are Sorry’ tomorrow!!!
It’s with great pleasure that I can finally announce the release of our album on May the 6th 2016. The album entitled ‘We Are Sorry’ is guaranteed to be a massive hit, so don’t miss your chance to immerse yourself in the glorious sounds of Spandau Synthpop.
In the meantime, before you run off to preorder the album, here is a short video which really gets to the heart of what we have tried to achieve with ‘We Are Sorry’. Take a look…
Welcome, witam, wilkommen, velkommen, welkom, bienvenue, bem-vindo and hello. As you can see, I have had the decorators in(no sniggering at the back) and redesigned my website. I sincerely hope you like it and find it much easier to find your way around. If not, then you really shouldn’t be on the internet. Or allowed to go outside. Or to reproduce.
This site represents what I hope will be a significant change. In the past few months I have learned a great deal about the Henry Tomlinson which lives inside all of us. I hope to share some of those thoughts with you in the coming weeks.
Alas, today I do not want to talk about tomorrow. I want to talk about today. For those of you that may have missed it, I, Scott Andrews, am in a Spandau Synthpop band. It is a story so odd and yet somehow majestic that I will likely save it for a book one day. Almost a month ago, our first music video was released. In that time it has clocked over 77,000 views on YouTube. And, guess what, you lucky bastards can see it below. Until next time…
