Biography

The Young Snakes was an American band formed in Boston in the early 1980s. Lead singer and bassist Aimee Mann formed the group after she dropped out of Berklee College of Music; other members were guitarist Doug Vargas and drummer Mike Evans, who replaced Dave Bass, who returned to his hometown, Philadelphia, after dropping out of the band.

After releasing the song “Brains and Eggs” on the Modern Method compilation A Wicked Good Time, the band released a five-song EP, 1982’s Bark Along with The Young Snakes, on Ambiguous Records. The compilation album Aimee Mann & The Young Snakes, released in 2004, included “Brains and Eggs” and a radio performance, but not the Bark Along tracks.

Mann has described the band as “a little punk noise-art outfit,” noting that the group’s “break every rule” ethos became a rule in itself, and that her later band ‘Til Tuesday was a rebellion against The Young Snakes’ lack of interest in “sweetness and melody.”

    Anyone know where to get this album - maybe the vinyl? Was it a limited run back in the day?
