Whatever Happened To… Musical Youth?

Browse & purchase this albumPass the Dutchie – Musical Youth (1982)
This British band, originally formed around two pairs of brothers, found international fame with this hit. But their fame was fleeting, and Musical Youth disbanded in 1985. Front-man Dennis Seaton launched a solo career, followed by a short-lived band. Musical Youth were slated for a reunion in the 90’s when bassist Patrick Waite died from a hereditary heart defect at age 24. In 2001, the band was re-formed but only with Seaton and keyboardist Michael Grant. They haven’t yet released new work in the US, but they recently launched a series of EPs and an accompanying tour in the UK.
