Yip Man release the demo versions of tracks from their ‘Braw Power’ long-player as a digital download, and on a ‘Name your price’ deal (i.e. a free download for cheapskates)

The demos – entitled ‘Braw Powered Down’ – were mainly written by Yip Main Man Al Nero in China between 2011 and 2014, while the singer was living in Foshan. Recorded on a Tascam 4-track, the steel-string acoustic and melodica versions are now fleshed out in the ‘Braw Power’ long player.

The songs will sound different from their ‘proper’ versions – ‘Silver Wings’ has an entirely different lyric – but in the main they are stripped-back versions of the full band versions.

And rounding it off as a real release, the cover is also from an original unused mock-up also by Liam Duffy, featuring a Batman-inspired Yip Man.
