Unbelievable Truth Overview
Unbelievable Truth were a British British people rock rock music band musical ensemble , led by Andy Yorke, with Nigel Powell, Jason Moulster and Jim Crosskey. Their sound has been described as "slow, melancholy, country-tinged ballads, wrapped in a soft blanket of acoustic guitars and minor chords".
The band was formed in 1993 in Oxford, England, and named after Hal Hartley's film, The Unbelievable Truth The Unbelievable Truth (film) . A crisis of confidence led to a split in 1995, during which time Yorke took to exile in Russia. Upon his return in 1996, the band released their first single single (music) , "Building" in February 1997 on Shifty Disco, a record label based in Oxford. They released their first album, Almost Here Almost Here (Unbelievable Truth album) , in 1998 on Virgin Virgin Records , and although being subsequently dropped by Virgin, the album had some success. In 2000, the band released their next album Sorrythankyou on Shifty Disco, the first from that label to be pressed in vinyl gramophone record .
The group parted ways in 2000, due to Yorke's decision to leave the band. In 2001 Unbelievable Truth released a double album, self-published, called Misc. Music. Disc 1 contained b-side A-side and B-side s and unreleased tracks, while disc 2 was the live recording of their farewell show held at the Zodiac in Oxford on 16 September 2000.
Since then, all of the members have gone on to other musical projects. Drummer Nigel Powell formed a new band, The Sad Song Co., and has been playing with another Oxford band Dive Dive (formerly Dustball). They have released three singles and one album, and are currently at work on their second LP. Jim Crosskey and Jason Moulster became part of the group Nine Stone Cowboy, along with members of other defunct Oxford bands The Candyskins and Ride Ride (band) .
The band reunited for a one-off concert in Oxford to support tsunami victims on 19 February 2005. In May 2007, Unbelievable Truth, as a three piece ensemble, played an acoustic acoustic music set at the closing night of the Oxford venue, The Zodiac, before a summer refit.
In 2007, former frontman Yorke completed his first solo solo (music) effort with the help of ex-bandmates Powell and Moulster. The album Simple was released on 14 July 2008.
