YOUNG REPUBLICANS

Sabotage Your Cookout 7-Inch More Than A Witness

Finally found after going missing for nearly 25 years, the Young Republicans demo cassette is certainly one of the most elusive and infamous artifacts in the history of hardcore and is truly a special item. Some have claimed that it never existed while others have referred to it as a "holy grail" item. Recorded in ?83 and only given to a handful of close friends, ¾ of the band would later go on to form the initial lineup of the influential group YOUTH OF TODAY. This 9 song EP captures the absolute essence of spirited hardcore under the shroud of Reagan: snot-nosed teens going faster MPH while standing in opposition to teachers, parents, rednecks, & suburbia. Highly catchy & classic sounding, this could easily be considered the crucial missing NYHC or CT 7? EP from 1983. Three tracks on this Young Republicans 7" EP would later be reworked and rerecorded for the debut Youth of Today "Can't Close My Eyes" 7? on Positive Force; ?Respect For Authority (None)? became ?Stabbed In The Back?, ?Backyard Bomb? became ?Expectations?, and ?High School Rednecks? became Project X's ?Straightedge Revenge? note for note on their sole EP on Schism.
