The Yo-Yos were a rock n'roll band, formed in 1998 by ex- The Wildhearts bassist, Danny McCormack and singer/ guitarist Tom Spencer (ex- Sugarsnatch/ The Lurkers) after the two met at a Toy Dolls recording session. The Yo-Yo's recruited Andy Selway (Bladz) (ex- Sugarsnatch) on drums & guitarist Neil Phillips (B-Movie Heroes) to the band.
The Yo-Yo's recorded their first single, entitled "Out Of My Mind" & then joined The Backyard Babies for a UK tour. Another single was then recorded, entitled "Rumble(d)." The Yo-Yo's continued to tour the UK & were then signed by US label Sub Pop.
On the Sub Pop label, the Yo-Yo's released their debut album, Uppers & Downers on CD & LP in 2000. Despite gaining a cult following as well favourable coverage from the rock and indie press, they split up do to infighting among members.
