The Nils were a pop-punk band from Montreal, started in 1978 by the barely adolescent Soria brothers. Now before you get all hot under the collar, this isn't Fall Out Boy pop-punk, this is more like the power pop with punk leanings that rulers like Husker Du (Bob Mould was a huge fan of these guys) and The Replacements made notable. The Nils contributed songs to the BYO compilation Something to Believe In and the regional Quebec comp Primitive Air Raid before releasing the Sell Out Young 12" EP in 1985. Another EP, Paisley, followed in 1986 (anyone have this?), and a more slick-sounding self titled LP came in 1987. The band remained active well into the '90s, but for some reason yielded no recordings after the debut LP. The Sorias were top-notch songwriters even at an early age. This EP is the proof. These guys should've been better known.
