THE YOUTH BRIGADE SOUND AND FURY (ORIGINAL VERSION)
I'm kind of partial to this version of this record . I like the in your face vocals , and some of the songs like alienated in my opinion (which dont mean anything ) should not have been removed from the album . At any rate I think this is a true classic punk record . YOUTH BRIGADE was formed at the end of summer 1980 in Los Angeles, amid the explosion of the punk scene in Southern California by brothers Shawn, Mark, and Adam Stern. The brothers Stern have established YOUTH BRIGADE as one of the most powerful, independent groups in North America over the course of their 25 years of existence. Shawn and Mark formed the Better Youth Organization in '79. They started off promoting shows, (they ran the infamous Godzilla's nightclub in 1981), started BYO Records in 1982, (which has released 102 records to date and become one of the strongest and most respected indie labels in the world) set up tours for many bands, (including the first BYO tour which was done in a big school bus and documented on 60 hours of video tape to become the movie, "Another State of Mind"), as well as many other projects too numerous to mention. YOUTH BRIGADE played their first gig as a 3 piece(the bands first year of existence was as a 6 piece!) on New Year’s Eve ‘81/’82 at Godzilla’s. They were part of the big BYO extravanganza, “Youth Movement’82” at the Hollywood Palladium, where 3500 people showed up for an all L.A. bill in early Febuary. Then they recorded 3 tracks for the first BYO record release, “Someone Got Their Head Kicked In”, and took off intheir big yellow school bus on their first North American tour during summer of ‘82. After about 30 shows and several breakdowns (all documented on film!) they returned home to record their debut LP “Sound and Fury” (A premature version was rushed together before the tour but pressing was stopped at 800 copies as the band was not satisfied with the quality of the material or production.)
Welcome to Shotgun Solution.
I use this Blog to share my passion for records, and underground music. If your not into having your record featured here, or if you just want to contact me, you can do so here.
Unfortunately, all of my pre 2/19/12 online files were lost during the takedown of Megaupload. I hope to eventually fix all of my broken links in time. But until then, if there's something you really want to hear I’ll consider requests.
Records I'm Looking For
Here's a few records I wouldn't mind adding to my collection; some rare, some not so rare. Please click on the Records link to see them. If you have an extra copy to sell me or maybe even trade; I would love to hear from you. Maybe you can even point me in the direction of someone who may have a copy to sell. I would prefer to "buy"; although I may still have a few things I might be willing to part with; my collection is pretty condensed these days..
