Rational Youth

Cold War Night Life 1981-84

Rational Youth - Cold War Night Life 1981-84

One of Canada’s first synth-pop groups, Rational Youth was formed in the summer of 1981 by Tracy Howe (The Normals, Men Without Hats, Heaven Seventeen) and Bill Vorn (U, Sacred Noise). Within the 10+ years that Howe put Rational Youth on indefinite hiatus, their early vinyl recordings (1981-1982) became much sought after collector items, and had been re-branded as “minimal-synth”. This 5LP set with booklet provides an almost complete overview of their works from 1981-1984.
