josef k - young & stupid

Josef K
Young and Stupid
LTMCD 2307

After all the moving around in the past year I'm finally getting settled down in my new accomodation. Have the chance now to empty some boxes that had been in storage for almost a year and get some more posts up here at SoYS. Today's post is a photograph of the original CD release of Josef K's Young and Stupid on the LTM label. This edition was originally released way back in 1990-91. Didn't realise that I'd had this for so long. A second edition (with different artwork), now deleted, was released on the same label in 2002. You'll have to shop around to find a copy nowadays. Or check out Ebay.

Young and Stupid is a collection of Josef K singles recorded for the Absolute, Postcard and Crepuscule labels between 1979 and 1981.
A comment from Spence (
the winnebago orchestra) allows me to add an update to this post:

- This collection was originally titled Young and Stupid/Endless Soul. It came out in 1987 on Allan Campbell's Supreme International Editions label, along with a 12'' called Heaven Sent featuring the Peel sessions.- (Thanks for the info, Spence).

You can read more on the Heaven Sent release at a previous SoYS post here.

Coffee & Orange Juice

Glad to back after a long hiatus following my relocation to France. Hope to be posting more soon.

For today, we have an interesting entry from übercoffee freak djmark1972 to the Sound of Young Scotland pool at Flickr. Here's what he has to say about his post.

"Coffee and Orange Juice. Nobody does the happy/melancholy pop thing quite like the Scottish. Orange Juice would eventually be known best for this song, this compilation features their early stuff from their days on Postcard Records. Good jangly lo-fi, post-punk that points in the direction of the more polished pop sounds that would come from them a bit later."
