The Jeunes were a great band:
The Jeunes were a band from Seattle, Washington, influenced primarily by British new wave and post punk. Comparisons ranged from the Cure, Stone Roses, Velvet Underground and Joy Division to Jesus & Mary Chain, Sonic Youth and Opal.
They formed in 2002; disbanded in 2005. Their only release was a four song EP, although they left behind unfinished and unreleased recordings of many more songs.
I just got this email from James Jeune:
Hope you’re doing well!
I just wanted to let you know we finally got around to releasing your 2004 remix of “Never Be The Same” – on a new LP by the Jeunes called Strangers In The Night.
Ironically the LP is mostly 2008 remixes of recordings the Jeunes made in 2004/5. In keeping with the history of the band, we decided to make it available as a free download. You can download it in 256k MP3 form (with cover art) in a single zip file here. The password to open the file is “june” (without the quotes).
Our website is here.
Feel free to give out the free download link on your blog or anywhere else – otherwise feel free to just download a copy for yourself if you’re interested!
James (& the Jeunes)
Well, better late than never!
And it’s FREEEEE!
