Rational Youth

Profile:
Canadian synth pop - post-punk band
Formed in Montreal, Quebec, Canada, 1980, infuenced by Kraftwerk by Tracy Howe (initially a drummer for Montreal punks The Normals and then Heaven Seventeen) and synthesizer players Bill Vorn, and Mario Spezza. The latter was soon replaced by Kevin Komoda which left as well the group in 1983, and was replaced by bassist Denis Duran. They reunited for a synth-pop festival in Sweden in 1997 and officially revived by Tracy Howe in 1998 with Jean-Claude Cutz and Dave Rout, both ex-members of Digital Poodle recording their comeback after fourteen years.
