Andy Yorke

Andy Yorke (born 1972) is a musician and former lead singer and guitarist for the band Unbelievable Truth, formed in 1994. He is the younger brother of Radiohead singer Thom Yorke.

Unbelievable Truth was a three piece band from Oxford, with Yorke on lead guitar and vocals, Nigel Powell on drums and piano and Jason Moulster on bass guitar and backing vocals. The band signed a record deal with Virgin and released their debut album "Almost Here" in 1998. The album received positive reviews by musical press and eventually reached #22 in the UK album chart. However sustained commercial success was not forthcoming due to a lack of support from Virgin and the band was dropped. In 2000, they released their second album "sorrythankyou" on Shifty Disco, the same Oxford independent label that released their first single. This album received mixed reviews from critics and failed to make any commercial inroads. In 2000, Andy Yorke left the band to pursue other interests, returning to university to study Russian politics and business. A posthumous double live and b-sides album was subsequently released in 2001 named "Misc. Music".

On 19 February 2005, at Oxford's Zodiac, Unbelievable Truth reunited for a single show where they played fifteen songs as a tribute to victims of the Asian tsunami that had hit India and Thailand in late 2004. They also reformed briefly to play the final night at the Zodiac in May 2007, before it closed down to be converted into a Carling Academy venue.

Andy Yorke released a solo album called "Simple" on July 14, 2008. Live shows in support of his solo material have featured both other former Unbelievable Truth members as backing musicians.
