Derby music review site Storge have featured Yakobo’s EP The Passage of Time in their list of ten great Derby releases from 2016. The list features a whole host of good music from Unqualified Nurse Band, Grawl!x, Steven Battelle (ex. Lostalone) and plenty more. Six more, in actual fact. It was a cracking year of music for the local scene, and 2017 is looking good too with the final part of Yakobo’s EP Trilogy in the pipeline.
