We’re humbled and proud to be working with You Am I."

They will join the growing ranks of established acts around the world that are choosing to exist outside of the multinational label system. The planned tour, that was to have UK hipsters The Thrills opening for You Am I, was cancelled after BMG's decision not to support the tour.

album tracks from their first five albums, the compilation is intended to be more of a sampler of the past albums rather than a greatest hits style album. "It’s more a retrospective than a 'best of' album," Tim declared. "It’s going to be a compilation of our first five albums and it’ll have album tracks rather than just a bunch of singles. It’ll also put a nice little full stop on that era of the band." Due to strict licensing arrangements the album will only be available through UK outlets.

you am i get stoned
You Am I will support their beloved Rolling Stones on the Brisbane leg of their world tour. The 2 shows on March 4 and 5 are sure to be a memorable moment in their career. A 14 year old Tim Rogers was actually inspired to become a musician by hearing Start Me Up while getting his teeth drilled at a mobile dentist. He even sports a tattoo of the Stones' mouth logo on his arm! Tim makes no secret of the fact that he's a wee bit excited by the prospect of supporting his heroes."That was very unexpected news and obviously it's going to be a lot of fun," he says. "I think we might drop the current obscure Stones covers we're throwing in the set. And I might cut out a couple of the moves that are too reminiscent of years gone by for that act."

23-02-2003
AUSTRALIAN & UK TOUR

CAn't find a better band
Members of Seattle superstars Pearl Jam have proclaimed their love for You Am I in a recent interview. When asked about the Australian music scene, bass player Jeff Ament had this to say;"I’ll take You Am I any day of the week over The Vines. Come on! Tim Rogers is one of the best songwriters ever. Why they’re not where The Vines are is beyond me. It’s good marketing I guess: he’s a cute kid, screams a little bit, whatever… I saw him on the MTV Awards and I wasn’t into it. Whereas You Am I, you get the record and think 'okay' but then you see them live and everyone is bouncing."
