THE VERNON WALTERS
Last Live (7")
Let's Make Our Own Records - 7 €
From Hoorn came this killer Dutch punk rock band called The Vernon Walters (1986 - 1990), named after an American diplomat and ledger officer mainly known as personal adviser to Presidents Truman, Eisenhower and Kennedy.
Frontman Hans Engel (vox/guit) plays an important role in the region in the underground music scene.
He was also active as a programmer for the youth center Troll and co-founder of the Westfries Popkollektief.
The band started the label Let's Make Our Own Records.
They released a split LP with Indirekt in 1987, followed by their only album two years later, and three singles.
Musically they played melodic punk rock with political messages by sincere lads; which didn't mean they were devoid of a touch of humour.
So this is their last record with 6 live goodies which were recorded very live at the Troll/Hoorn on 2nd June 1990.
