The Young'uns - When Our Grandfathers Said No

Taken from their 2012 album ‘When Our Grandfathers Said No’, The Battle of Stockton Town by The Young’uns is our track of the week.

When Our Grandfathers Said No is a line from 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.

When Our Grandfathers Said No is available now from Propermusic, Amazon, iTunes, Spotify and all good music stores.

The Young'uns - Never ForgetThe Young’uns release their new album ‘Never Forget’ today which the band have decided to release the album under their own label Hereteu Records.

In May 2013, a beautiful thing happened in the city of York. Muslims from a tiny mosque on Bull Lane met protesting members of the English Defence League with a pot of tea and invited them to come inside. This tiny act of love inspired the album. The Young’uns bold vocals and innate musicality take the listener from a tiny mosque in York to the Spanish Civil War through a landscape strewn with working-class heroes, lost sailors and abandoned lovers.
