The Young Lions were among the most notable and undeniably the most original of Dutch post-punk experimental pop outfits active in Amsterdam at the end of the 1970s and early 1980s. In their short existence the band released only one official album: a 6 track 12″ EP, ‘No News, Strange Rumours’, on the Dutch Plurex label. All their other work was and is extremely rare, and, as things go, became the stuff that myths are made of…
This anthology, consisting of tracks recorded at various occasions and by various means in the years 1979 and 1980, was originally released in the early 1980s as a very limited edition cassette album by the Amsterdam based Amphibious Records label.
The digital album download includes the original cassette art work and several other goodies.
Released 01 July 1980

Tim Benjamin, Ronald Heiloo, Peter Mertens, Harold Schellinx, Rob Scholte
