Young Canadians - No Escape

To make up with the lack of post last month, I’ll be posting twice this month. And right now it’s the Young Canadians. They were one of the earliest punk bands in Vancouver, together with DOA. They were formerly known as the K-Tels until they were threatened by the actual record company of the same name, just like what happened with Redd Kross.

They played punk with some power pop undertones. Their music is more akin with the Pointed Sticks than DOA. They only released a handful of EPs and singles and it is collected here in No Escape plus some live tracks.

These guys are legends in their own right, so grab it now.
