I never saw YOUNG LIONS during their time as a band. Hell, I never even heard of them until Erick Lyle sent me a big box of music to put on my blog. This CD was kicking around in the bottom of the box, kind of neglected in the shadows of the heavy hitters in the Region-Rock or early Bay Area punk genres. I put it on a few days ago and got really into it. To me, they sound like what I wanted SUPERCHUNK to sound like all those years ago....loose, jangly, punk, kinda desperate and noodly in all the right ways. To be clear, I don't think they sound like SUPERCHUNK, but they sound like what my young teenage mind thought that band should sound like, if that makes any sense.
"Demography" collects the band's demos from 2005 and 2006...16 songs in all. That's about all I know about this band. Oh, they're from Reno and they're great. That's it.
