On November 23, Dischord will release Youth Brigade’s Complete First Demo. A quartet featuring singer Nathan Strejcek, drummer Danny Ingram, bassist Bert Queiroz, and guitarist Tom Clinton, Youth Brigade played its first show in March of 1981. The band lasted a little over a year and released only 11 songs between the Possible EP and Flex Your Head compilation.
This 7” single – which has been pressed on yellow vinyl – collects the eight tracks that Youth Brigade recorded with Don Zientara and Skip Groff in the summer of 1981 during its first recording session, many of which have never been officially released.
