The Young Ones – Our Nose in Their Business

Contra Records
Written By Mark Jones

Hailing from the Netherlands, The Young Ones were originally active more than a decade ago but after several releases sadly called it a day. Early last year original members Marlon (Vocals) and Elmer (Guitar and Vocals) decided to get the band back together adding the original drummer Jasper, Merijn (Bass) and Lando (Guitar and Vocals). After a few rehearsals, the band had written 4 new songs that made it on this comeback E.P and I’m sure they will please original fans and gain some new ones.

Featuring four anthemic songs ‘Our Nose in Their Business’ shows a band enjoying what they do, that is authentic Oi! which is incredibly catchy and fun. ‘Johnny Wanker’ is first and what a start, a melodic gem that will no doubt have you singing along in no time. I didn’t think things could get much better but how wrong was I, ‘Mrs. Plum’, ‘Cross-Eyed Butcher’ and ‘Joey Stiches’ are all absolutely brilliant songs which I’ve had on repeat constantly.

‘Our Nose In Their Business’ is one of the best records released this year so far, I just hope we don’t have to wait another ten years for the next one.
