yellow6 is the solo project of jon attwood, a guitarist based in leicestershire, uk. early musical excursions were in punk bands in the early 80s in London…since 1995 he has been making home recordings, initially guitar drones slowly evolving to more structured melodic music including samples, programmed beats, reverb and a large improvisational element.
the first record, a 7" single, was released by enraptured records in late 1998. since then, along with a transition from 4 track to PC based digital recording, further recordings have been released by labels including bearos, atomic, ochre, jonathon whiskey, rocket racer, awkward silence. the mini-lp 'icanhearthemusicallaroundme' gained yellow6 their first airplay from radio 1's john peel and tracks went on to be used in film and TV productions.
the dawn of 2000 saw yellow6 venture into the live arena, initially as a bass/drums/guitar 3 piece and later utilising drum machines and samples along with bass and guitars. recent live appearances have been solo (as on the cd live@ochre7, the debut solo gig)
yellow6 has completed a number of remixes for portal, glider, tristeza, slipstream, amp and an album of remixes of yellow6 has recently been released (remixed by portal, innerise, bauri, maps&diagrams, galena, rothko, ::lackluster::, landing, phobos3 and amp)… the fourth album, disappear here, was released in early 2003 on the Make mine Music label, founded with other like-minded artists (portal, epic45, avrocar…) and was supported with a short US west coast tour. collaborations are ongoing with bauri and millimetrik
