This is a serious lesson in metal history for you lot out there! The ultimate
re-issue of the legendary "1980 Brats" album, complete with 4-page insert,
poster and extensive liner notes. As you may or may not know,
Copenhagen's very own Brats morphed into the one and only Mercyful Fate
when a certain Kim Bendix Petersen (aka King Diamond) joined them
towards the very end of their short "career". Apart from the future Mercyful
Fate guitar duo of Michael Denner and Hank Shermann (calling himself
Hank de Wank back then) Brats featured singer and bass player Yenz (also
known as Yenz Leonhardt or Yenz Cheyenne; born Jens Arnsted). Yenz
later went on to form Geisha and Y (together with King Diamond bassist Hal
Patino). Just like Yenz remembers, with songs such as "Punk Fashion",
"Heavy Rocker" and "Zombie People" "1980 Brats" was a totally unique
album mixing punk, hard rock and proto-metal. It was far ahead of its time!
