Probably posted elsewhere but here's a quality rip from pristine vinyl of the sole full length album of Yeah Yeah Noh.
I think I've read somewhere that John Peel was a bit disappointed with this album, being a big fan of the band. It's a quite long album and maybe Yeah Yeah Noh works better in small doses on 7"/12", but you need to listen a few times to this record to fully appreciate it.
The album has some known songs as 'Temple Of Convenience', a re-recorded 'Prick Up Your Ears' and 'Starling Pillowcase', and 'Home-Ownersexual' which is another version of 'Another Side To Mr. Quill'.
The album contains two covers, 'Susie's Party' and 'She Said She Said'.
The 'Fun On The Lawn Lawn Lawn' album which is a compilation of Peel sessions is the only record I don't have of Yeah Yeah Noh. Hopefully one day...

Now there are some bands called Menticide but this one is the UK band, actually from Southwell, Nottinghamshire. Already started in 1976/77 but their first and only release was this single released in 1985, after some line-up changes.
I think they are also mentioned in John Robb's 'Death To Trad Rock' book but I'm not sure.
Menticide also appear on 'The Timebox' comp. album posted by Sorrow-Vomit on his great blog Kentucky Fried Wave.
