Pursuit Of Momentary Happiness

LP black

Few albums in rock 'n' roll history have seen its creator's obsession veer so close to self-destruction, as Yak's The Pursuit Of Momentary Happiness. For singer, guitarist and driving force Oli Burslem, making his band's second album became about pursuing his artistic vision at the expense of all else, including his own financial security, and mental health. Who else these days invests every single penny available to them into recording, to the point where they become homeless, and have to sleep in the back of a Citroen estate? Listening to The Pursuit Of Momentary Happiness, you frequently feel the white-knuckle monomania of Yak's mission. It's one of those once-in-a-decade records, whose sheer sense of belief and commitment pulsates through every nanosecond of boundary-breaking sound - like Spiritualized's Ladies And Gentlemen We Are Floating In Space, and Tame Impala's Innerspeaker, both of whose creators had a part to play in its genesis.
