Five posts in five days and all from the same box. I haven’t managed that in a long time. This record is the sort of obscure indie post punk stuff this blog was built on before I started neglecting it. The only reason I haven’t featured it before is I was going to link it to a ZigZag article about Wasted Youth that I found, but of course that would require time and effort so it was put on hold indefinitely. If you liked the gloomy stuff from my blogs classic period you should like this.
The band line-up is:
Ken Scott (vocals & guitar)
Rocco Barker (guitar)
Nick Nicole (synth)
Darren Murphy (bass)
Andy Scott (drums)
This single was released on Bridgehouse Records which, according to Wikipedia, was a label set up by the bass player's father in the pub he owned in Canning Town.
Side A: Wasted Youth - I’ll Remember You (1980)
Side B: Wasted Youth - My Friends Are Dead (1980)
Produced by Peter Perrett of The Only Ones fame.
