Nothing but ...the Youth

THE YOUTH is a young Beat/Garage/R&B band from Copenhagen, Denmark including Jesper Agerbæk:  Guitar - Lasse Tarp: Guitar, vocals - Sune Christian Thomsen:  Drums and last but not least David Peter Jørgensen:  Bass, vocals.

Some people claim that they are influenced by Medway bands like The Masonics or The Milkshakes but as far as I'm concerned I hear much more the influences of Dutch 60's bands like Q65, The Motions or The Outsiders. And to prove my point, they deliver a very fine rendition of "That's your problem". And even if their sound is rooted in the past, it sounds totally fresh and contemporary!  Their debut cd/album, "Nothing But..." was recorded at Circo Perrotti Estudios, Gijón, Spain and released on Dirty Water Records last October.

What a shame there is already a Philippino band of the same name. The guys are much better.
