    Woah - we didn't see this one coming! Athens Of The North focus on some unissued material from Dennis Young of no-wave / post punk legends from NYC, Liquid Liquid! Following the group disbanding in '85, Young continued to make music, adding elements of jazz and '4th world' music whilst being rooted into the percussive tradition synonymous with Liquid Liquid. A fantastic and intriguing release that puts a spotlight on that period in Young's career.
