Young Pioneers - Dusting off their spurs, poised to release their long
awaited debus LP, High Again on K. Veterans of the NW underground,
Young Pioneers formed in Olympia's nascent punk scene
during the early '80s. They've not lost their gift as masters of the dark
art of post-punk pop psychedelia, welding wicked melody into pop
hooks. They beat a mean tambourine. Leather jackets and a pompadour;
studs and eye make up; Young Pioneers have created a
massive sound layering the guitar organ drumbeat.
