DE CYLINDERS - We Must Pay 7'' 1980

Second 7Inch by De Cylinders from Amsterdam and a fuckin' great record. The band were formed 1978 and consisted of: Jolanda (vocals), Vincent (guitar), Ruud (bass), Christian (drums), Rene (guitar) and Kees (piano & organ). Their debut I Wanna Get Married was released in 1980 via CNR Records and is a powerful one, as well as this one, the a-side with a driving mid-tempo number, the flip with a melodious delicacy and Jolanda's voice and the organ are superb. 
The band separated in 1984, three years after their last single. But they reformed in 2009 and they were very successful in New York and Japan and Jeremy Thompson (SingSingRecords) re-released this 7'' the same year on vinyl and he mentioned in an interview that there is a lot of unreleased De Cylinders material in the can and in 2012 the Japanese label BASE released a compilation CD with seventeen songs, including lots of unpublished material (has anyone?). Fazit: brilliant band, cheerful music which spreads good mood.
