Der Junge Hund - Ridders (12", Kremlin, 1981), Alte Und Idioten (LP, Kremlin, 1982)

This free jazz, rock, funk, punk trio from Eindhoven made these two records on Kremlin Products as well as 'Europa Ladenversuch' a double cassette which I don't have anymore. The Dutch answer to James White. 'Ridders' was recorded in thirty minutes so they claimed back then. 'Alte Und Idioten' is a bit more refined. The band was Horst Rickels (saxophone), Renz Sanders (voice, saxophone and guitar) and Rik van Iersel (drums). Very energetic stuff all around.
