Product Description

The Young’uns music is rooted fiercely in Teesside – specially, Stockton – where they first started singing together at the local folk club, although they spread their wings on this glorious 2012 album, When Our Grandfathers Said No, which includes a stomping French song, Pique la Baleine, a gorgeous unaccompanied arrangement of James Taylor’s You Can Close Your Eyes, some nifty instrumental work, a couple of rollicking shanties and plentiful strong original material from Sean Cooney. When Our Grandfathers Said No is a line from one of his most compelling songs, The Battle of Stockton, recalling an incident in 1933 when Oswald Mosely’s Blackshirts targeted deprived areas as potential fascist hotbeds and marched over the Tees – to be physically repelled by 2,000 outraged Stockton townsfolk.
