"All These Things Are Gone" is the title track and spiritual centerpiece of The Young Punx 3rd album. An epic 14 minute long journey it constantly evolves and takes in many musical styles, inspired by the 90s bliss house of artists like Saint Etienne and The Beloved. The track is a melancholic but moving ode to all that is accidentally lost from the world in the name of progress. When you are a child you think everything will last for ever. But as you grow up you realize quite the opposite is true. The large and small. The important and the trivial. The public and the personal. Everything you love, everything you hate. In time, they will all be gone.
The track is accompanied by a masterful video by Dutch multimedia artist Han Hoogerbrugge, who has collaborated with The Young Punx across all 3 of their albums. Han's characteristic deadpan hand-drawn style perfectly matches the track, creating an uneasy world where the familiar takes on a surreal edge like a nightmare of half remembered images. Both the video and the song leave you with the aftertaste that although everything in the world will end, nothing touches you deeper than the loss of a loved one.
