youth of america Night of the Comet / Navigator (7", £4.95)label: Great Pop Supplement
Youth Of America is the songwriting project of Simon Shaw from Trembling Bells. Participating on this release are all of the Bells plus singers Lucy Sweet (Lucky Luke) and Sophie Sexon (Big Hogg). Influences and sources of inspiration include US '80s and '90s West Coast power pop (think The Go-Go's, Bangles, Redd Kross etc.), and US counterculture films from the same period. Navigator has been described as "Big Star with gurls" while Night Of The Comet is a tribute to the 80s zombie cult classic of the same title. This killer 45 is limited to 400 copies with (proudly) no links whatsoever to Record Store Day.
