The Young Lords

Front cover Young Lords

The Young Lords 7″ (Sonet, Norway) 1980

The Young Lords were a punk/new wave/power pop band from Halden, Norway. This was their only 7″ released in 1980, produced by Casino Steel. Three originals and a cover of The Heptones’ “Book of Rules”. The last song “Big Burden” is my favorite. You can’t get much more catchier than that. That song also opened their album “Same Shit – New Wrapping” also released in 1980. Singer/guitarist Henning Kvitnes fronted several new wave bands through the 80’s, but I don’t know much about them.

    Uff Da! Not quite as good as, let’s say, The Boys, but I like it a lot. Thanks.

    Downloaded this awhile ago, but I’ve been listening to it a lot since. Like a raw and lively Elvis Costello–what he should have been. Give this another listen.
