You Were So Young
 
You Were So Young Quantity in Basket: None
Price: $15.00
Artist: The Cigaretttes
 
 
Quantity:
 

It was at the tail end of what would later be loosely termed “The Seventies”, in Lincoln, Merry England, that three teenagers formed, the consequences of their actions are captured here.  “You Were So Young” consists of everything that The Cigarettes ever recorded in what was their two year life span. From the very beginnings in the rehearsal room through to tracks recorded for an unreleased third single. It includes the two singles and their flip sides, some tracks that were included on a local compilation album, and their solitary John Peel session along with a handful that never found their way onto a record.  Over the years The Cigarettes have gained a wealth of interest, leaving many to scratch their heads and wonder how they slipped under the radar for so long. To get a copy of their debut single “They're Back Again, Here They Come”, you would need to shell out some serious money and “You Were So Young” has been viewed on Youtube over 1 million times!  “File this album next to ‘Singles Going Steady’ and ‘All Mod Cons’ if you haven’t already.  I have always loved this band. And this, in my opinion, is the re-issue of the year.  They were just brilliant – like the Jam with a sense of humour, the Buzzcocks with a bit of politics, and weirdly a bit like Supergrass (circa ‘Caught By The Fuzz’).  Mainly though, they were a punk, pop, mod guitar band who were supernaturally talented and should’ve been contenders, if not mega-stars.  The band tell their story and undersell themselves with a self-deprecating interview in the accompanying 20 page booklet, but the songs sound as magnificent as ever.  ‘I’ve Forgot My Number (Now I’m Telling You My Name)’ is a completely different kettle of fish - a perfect Undertones style pop song.  ‘Can’t Sleep at Night’ and ‘It’s the Only Way to Live (Die)’ are the band at their finest musically.  They both seem to be joined at the hip with a kind of jagged reggae/punk feel, and the feel of something off of side two of a ‘Different Kind of Tension’.  ‘Stay Inside’ has the most amazing bass line and playing you will ever hear and beautiful scrabbling guitar…they really were every bit as good as all of the Top Twenty chart punk bands. They just didn’t get the breaks, the management or the luck.  I won’t go on and on…  Just get hold of this album.  You won’t regret it. It’s the best thing which never came out in 1979 or 1980.” – LouderThanWar.com  EXCELLENT!!
