Youngblood Records

Sometime around 2008 I realized that I had pretty much pre-ordered and collected everything that Youngblood had ever released, so I decided to try to complete the Youngblood catalog as completely as possible, including test pressings and regular black vinyl pressings.  So I spent the next year or so collecting a bunch of random black vinyl pressings that I didn’t have, and ran down a couple of test pressings I was missing.  Ultimately I completed almost every version of Youngblood #1-32, up through the Carry On “It’s All Our Blood” LP release.  Once I had completed the full YB catalog, I decided that I really hadn’t been all that connected to any of the releases after YB #20, other than the Carry On “It’s All Our Blood” LP.  YB #20 is the Lights Out “Overload” LP, so I pretty much sold off everything released after the Lights Out LP, keeping only 1 copy of each release (other than the YB #32 Carry On LP, I kept all of those).  I went ahead and listed my collection at its peak, which encompasses YB #1-32, at the very bottom of this post.  But the photos and descriptions are only YB #1-20 because I only had one copy of each of the later releases at the time of taking these photos.

YB-1  Rancor – “Flip The Switch” 7″The 1st pressing had red lettering on the covers, with 200 on red vinyl and 725 on black vinyl.  There were also 75 on black vinyl that had plain black and white covers.  This was one of the only Youngblood rarities that I was never able to run down, so it is not pictured here.  There were only 5 test pressings, and I actually saw one sell on eBay in 2010 for pretty cheap – like $60 or something.  Had that been available a year or two earlier, I definitely would have jumped at the chance to own a test pressing of YB #1!!  But I had already started selling off the collection and I’m definitely not in the business of buying stuff anymore.  I was super surprised to see it pop up – I figured I’d see a black & white cover out of 75 long before I ever saw a test pressing out of 5!  The 2nd pressing had green lettering on the cover, and the labels changed to green ink as well.  They pressed 500 on green vinyl and 500 on black vinyl for the 2nd pressing.

YB-2  Bladecrasher – “700 Club” 7″The Bladecrasher 7″ is fucking awesome.  Their vocalist Timmy later went on to sing in No Justice, and left an infamous legacy of wild sets full of destruction.  I mentioned a few examples in the No Justice write-up, including this sweet show outside a BART train station in San Francisco.  Anyway, the Bladecrasher 7″ had a bunch of weird limited covers.  The first is this strange “goat” cover.  I don’t know what the hell the deal was with this thing, it looks like some weird Aztec or Mayan carving or something.  There were 100 of these sold in D.C. only, but 30+ got lost, so there’s really only 65 or less that actually got put together and sold, mine is #36/100.  The Youngblood discography says that the goat covers came with black vinyl, but mine came with blue vinyl.  The cover next to it is the black and white “demo cover”, which is numbered out of 100 on the inside, and comes with blue vinyl.  Mine is #61/100.  There were also 150 “demo covers” printed on orange paper that came with blue vinyl.  The remainder of the pressing was 700 on black vinyl with the regular cover shown in the 2nd row.  Oddly enough, I also have a blue vinyl copy that comes with regular cover.  It seems like there were all sorts of mis-communication when it came to putting these records together, because the info in the discography doesn’t totally match all the blue vs. black vinyl variations that are out there.  That’s just what happens when you have a bunch of different covers getting thrown on vinyl at shows – I definitely know how that goes, haha!  I also showed a couple of early Youngblood fliers, advertising the first 3 releases by Rancor and Bladecrasher.

Close-up of the “goat cover” on the left, and the black and white “demo cover” on the right.  Black and white demo covers were numbered out of 100 on the inside, mine is #61/100.  The goat cover is also numbered on the inside, mine is #36/100.

The insert for the Bladecrasher 7″, along with an advertisement from 1997 for the first 2 Youngblood releases.

YB-3  Rancor – “Never Hold Back” 7″The 1st pressing of the second Rancor 7″ was 120 on orange, 220 on clear, and 580 on black.  There were also 100 copies of a cool “Silhouette” cover, featuring the guitar dude jumping, printed on blue paper.  These are a bitch to find, but I owned one for a while.  I sold it, as well as my clear vinyl copy, in 2010 before I took these photos.  The 2nd pressing was 220 on really dark blue vinyl – 100 had the regular cover, the remaining 120 had a black and white cover.

Here’s the blue Silhouette cover, out of 100.  I asked the guy who bought it to email me a photo!

The back of the Silhouette cover.

To see the dark blue vinyl properly, you really need to hold it up to the light.  It looks pretty sweet.  It’s actually very similar to the 7 Seconds “The Crew” LP on blue, which is a legendary record that most people don’t even know exists because it looks black unless you hold it to the light.  There are photos of a 7 Seconds LP on blue on this blog as well.

YB-4  Life’s Halt – “We Sold Our Soul For Hardcore” 7″The Life’s Halt 7″ is a total rager that never got the respect it was due, mostly because they came from the west coast at a time when there wasn’t a lot of other straight ahead hardcore happening out here.  The other reason is that they rolled with the more “thrash scene”, so they weren’t on the radar of a lot of modern hardcore type folks.  Luckily Joe Onlife from Youngblood was living in SoCal at the time, so they DID end up on Youngblood’s radar.  There were 28 test pressings, most of which came with a special skater cover.  Unfortunately my test pressing didn’t have the special cover – instead it just has the regular “faces” cover with red ink.  The first pressing had a couple limited covers.  There was a “skater cover” on black vinyl with glued on graphics, sold only in Cali out of 50, which I never owned so it’s not pictured.  There was also the “Black Sabbath rip-off” cover out of 100, with yellow vinyl.  Then there was 120 yellow vinyl copies with the regular cover “faces” art, but with special green ink instead of the usual red ink, mine is #44/120.  50 of the 120 yellow vinyl with green ink had corny phrases written on the dust sleeve, and mine is one of them – more details below. The remainder of the 1st pressing was 750 on black vinyl with regular “faces” cover in red ink.  The 2nd pressing switched to yellow labels and had 75 “red skeleton skater” covers made for Positive Numbers Festival, along with 925 on black vinyl with regular “faces” cover , this time with black ink on the cover.

Here’s my test pressing, out of 28 copies. Unfortunately mine does not have the alternate test pressing skater cover. Instead it just has a regular 1st pressing cover and insert.

The “Black Sabbath” cover, complete with insert, out of 100 copies.

As I said above, there were 120 on yellow vinyl with special green ink covers, but 50 of those 120 came with corny phrases written on the dust sleeve.  Mine says “Carl Diego says…” on one side, and “West Coast Hardcore reigns supreme!” on the other side.  Mine is #44/120.  I got my copy by pre-ordering directly from Youngblood in 1999, but had no idea who “Carl Diego” was.  What’s cool about me owning this particular copy is that a couple of years later in 2002, I would meet my friend Carl Cordova (“Carl Diego”) when he was the Resident Advisor (RA) at San Francisco State University and he booked a show for my band, The Damage Done, at “The Cantina” – a recreation room in the dorms at SF State.  Carl came from San Diego, so he met Joe Onlife from Youngblood while Joe was living in SoCal.  Carl was heavily involved in the Memories Of Tomorrow LP compilation on Youngblood, as well as touring with Life’s Halt and What Happens Next.  Eventually Carl moved to SF for college where I met him, and later sang in Our Turn, who put out a 7″ on Youngblood.  This photo also shows the cool fold out “gas mask guy” insert that comes with the first pressing (the inside of the fold-over covers is blank).  This copy also came with a weird little “Black Sabbath” thing that looks like a gum wrapper or something, haha.  Also check out the label art of a graffiti/skater kid spray-painting the Youngblood logo on a brick wall as the cops roll up…

Here’s the reverse side of the dust sleeve, showing the “West Coast Hardcore reigns supreme!”.  I also made sure to reverse the vinyl and show the B-side labels, this time depicting the graffiti/skater kid thrashing and grinding the cop’s car as he escapes! hahaha.  Fuck yeah, I love this 7″.

Here’s the 2nd pressing “red skeleton skater” cover, out of 75 copies.

The back of the “red skeleton skater”, #36/75, made for Positive Numbers Festival.  Check out the cool lyric sheet with Felix Life’s Halt skating and hanging out with Sean Youngblood.  There’s also another little insert with full color photo of Ernie jumping.

The 2nd pressing no longer had the 1st pressing lyric sheet with the gas mask guy.  Instead, the lyrics are printed on the inside of the fold-over cover itself.  925 copies on black vinyl with 2nd press cover.

YB-5  Carry On – “The Line Is Drawn” 7″

Carry On is pretty much my favorite band of all time.  That may sound weird to you, but if you read my Carry On blog entry, you’ll understand why.  So I obviously love this 7″ and everything about it.  Carry On was vitally important to California and West Coast hardcore, in a way that most people will never understand unless they lived through that time period.  The blog entry linked above will explain it a little bit – give it a read if you have some free time.  Anyway, the 1st pressing of “The Line Is Drawn” was 260 on gold vinyl, 738 on black vinyl, with 24 test pressings. The gold vinyl copies had orange lettering on the cover, while the black vinyl had yellow lettering. That was kinda neat how they changed the cover lettering for the gold vinyl.  100 of the black vinyl have a stamp out of #/100 on the inside of the cover, shown below. So there are 638 on black with no stamp.  The 2nd pressing was 500 on red vinyl.

Sometime after the 7″ came out, Carry On did a short (and small) east coast tour with Count Me Out, who had only released their “Few And Far Between” EP so far. I know that the shows on this tour weren’t huge by any means. These stamped 7″s were sold at those shows, I think. Since I don’t live on the East Coast, I didn’t get mine at the show. I got mine via trade later from my buddy Marlon Moreno, so I hope I’m remembering this right.  Mine is #34/100.

Here is the original insert that came with the first pressing. You can see that it lists 6 band members – Ryan, Corey, Nat, Josh, Todd, and Jordan (upper right). Jordan had previously written and recorded the songs on guitar, but Todd had recently joined the band. There is even some text on the reverse side of the insert that says “Extra special thanks to our new guitarist Todd Jones who has stood by us forever. Good luck we love you Jordan.”

There are 24 test pressings of “The Line Is Drawn” and I own 2 of them. The test pressing covers were made by Corey Williams. He worked at Kinko’s so he was always making cool shit like these foil embossed covers. The tattoo art of X’d up praying hands was one of Corey’s own tattoos. I didn’t realize until I was taking this photo that one of my test pressings has the entire tattoo art embossed in gold foil (left), whereas the other copy (right) only has the writing around the art embossed in gold, but the hands are not embossed. I got my first copy of this test pressing from Ryan George in exchange for a Mouthpiece shirt. We were hanging out at a show at the Ojai Women’s Club one night, and I had this Mouthpiece shirt on that my friend had just gotten me in New Jersey when Mouthpiece played some reunion shows in 2000. It’s nothing special – just a royal blue shirt with varsity print in yellow and “XXX” in the middle. Ryan really liked it and kept wanting me to trade it to him. I told him I’d just gotten the shirt and I liked it, so I didn’t really want to trade it. He told me he’d give me a “Line Is Drawn” 7″ test for it, so I caved in. Haha, this was obviously a really good trade for me, and Ryan knew it, but he didn’t mind hooking a friend up. Thanks, Ryan, that was very cool of you! The second test I bought on eBay a couple years back. I have no idea why – I mean, I already owned one! I just love Carry On and for some reason decided I wanted to buy another one, haha.

The 2nd press of “The Line Is Drawn” 7″ was 500 on red vinyl, and had a different insert (shown on the right).

Most importantly, the inside of the 2nd pressing had a memoire printed for Jordan, Carry On’s previous guitarist: “In Loving Memory… Jordan Johnson”. Sometime around the year 2000, Jordan passed away unexpectedly from heart complications after some kind of skate boarding injury progressed into something more severe. Oddly enough, I never knew all the details, and never had the heart to ask. I didn’t know Jordan very well, but his brother Jeremy was a friend of mine, and some of my good friends were close with Jordan. To say the least, it was shocking and sudden, and it affected everyone instantly. I remember getting a call from Mike Stelle (Jitsu Records), telling me that Jordan had passed away. I think Mike was up in Vancouver, BC when it happened. He was there with In Reach who had come out to the west coast to do some shows after Mike had put out the In Reach / Open Up split 7″ on Jitsu Records. Mike is a pretty stoic dude, but I just remember how shook he sounded on the phone when he called. Before he said anything, I knew something really fucked had happened. I was out of town on a family trip when the funeral happened, but I remember everyone telling me that they came into town for the funeral and how fucking sad it was to see a bunch of kids so young mourning the loss of a fellow young friend. To this day it just seems so tragic. I remember a part of me feeling so thankful that I wouldn’t have to go through that anytime soon for one of my friends – we’re too young for this shit. Little did I know in 3 years I’d be doing just that…. and unbelievably enough, this time for Jordan’s brother, my friend Jeremy Johnson.  (See the Carry On blog entry if you want to know more about all of this awful shit).

The advertisement above for the Carry On, Life’s Halt, and ROTP 7″ was stuffed in one of my Carry On 7″s, and shows Joe Onlife hanging with Ernie and Felix from Life’s Halt.  During the time period after “The Line Is Drawn” 7″ came out, shows in SoCal were small, but very cool, mostly centered around the PCH Club in Wilmington, CA and Headline Records in Hollywood. There were also a few shows in the Santa Barbara area at The Living Room, or The Pickle Patch. During this time period is actually where I met one of my best friends, John Eightclip (eventually, vocalist in Allegiance). He was going to school in Santa Barbara, and my friends and I pretty much went to every Santa Barbara show. I don’t know how we hadn’t met sooner, but the way we met is kind of funny. My friends and I had gone to see Sick Of It All, Indecision, and AFI play at the Ventura Theatre in Ventura, CA. There were a ton of nazi skins there that night. Whenever any of the hardcore kids tried to mosh, the nazi dude were beating the hell out of us. John was wearing a hardcore jersey of some kind (Ensign, I think… haha, it’s OK, that was the time period), and I just remember both of us kinda seeing each other, realizing we had to protect each other, and just smashing any sketchy dude we saw that looked like he was about to fuck with another hardcore dude. Luckily, those nazi dudes ended up getting handled by huge SOIA and Indecision roadies from NYC, haha. Mid-way through the set, John and I introduced ourselves, and we’ve been best friends ever since – we even lived together for a long period of time. From that point on, I would often go down to shows at the Pickle Patch and spend the weekend at Eightclip’s pad in Isla Vista, CA. I remember one day Todd Jones came over to hang out and get burritos. He played us the new recording that Carry On had just done (which would become “Roll With The Punches”). John and I would also run into Ben Merlis (Ben Edge, vocalist in Fields Of Fire) whenever I would go down there. There was this one night where John and I ran into Ben on the street, where he was just watching all this craziness go down. The tradition in Isla Vista during the last week of school (mostly frat dudes and shit) is to throw your couches in the middle of the street and light them on fire, haha. So we sat there watching people light couches on fire, then literally throw them off 2 and 3 story balconies. Meanwhile, we started shit with bros and tried hitting on drunk college girls, haha. Yeah, we were dorks. Isla Vista is this fucking crazy party place where it’s almost just like “anything goes, as long as no one dies” type deal (and unfortunately, “dying” does happen). The cops just kinda let anything go on – case in point: allowing this dude Steve Aoki to do shows at “The Pickle Patch”, which was just his regular ass apartment in Isla Vista / Goleta (every school year it would move because Steve would get a new place). I definitely saw Ensign and Kill Your Idols play in a fucking regular living room of a 2 bedroom apartment, with people stage diving off the stairs that were inside the apartment, with hardcore kids just spilling out into the parking lot and common area of the apartments. Anyway, during this time there was a solid group of bands playing shows together, including Carry On, Life’s Halt, and No Reply. Metallic hardcore still reigned supreme in California, especially in Orange County with Throwdown, Adamantium, Eyelid, Bleeding Through, Eighteen Visions, and any number of similar bands. I’m not knocking these bands in any way – they were doing their own thing, and everyone should always play the music they want to play. There was just this whole contingent of smaller straight up hardcore bands that no one was paying attention to. All of these sweet bands were being overlooked by the “larger” hardcore population. And some of us did support the bigger metallic hardcore bands and go to their shows. But when kids are supporting what you’re doing and you don’t return the favor, some animosity is always going to start building. So this group of underground hardcore bands stuck together and played some cool shows together. In hindsight, it was better that the shows were small, that’s what made that time so special.  As I mentioned before, Youngblood had been able to tap into that, because Joe Onlife was living in SoCal at the time (San Diego?).

Here’s a cool photo of a young Todd Jones singing along to Life’s Halt. This photo is in the SK-8 or Die 7″ compilation that one of our friends, Ryan “It’s Fucking Ober” Ober put out on “Pig Pen Inc.” Records, haha.

When Carry On recorded “The Line Is Drawn” 7″, I can’t remember if they recorded before they knew the record would be out on Youngblood, or if things just took a while to get put together once they had recorded for Youngblood, but it seemed like it took forever to come out.  Anyway, there was this tape of the rough mix.

In today’s times, a label would probably be super pissed if a band did this, but I mean back then it was pretty unlikely that anyone was really dicking around with ripping cassette tapes onto computers the way kids are easily able to rip vinyl onto digital format today. So this tape had the Youngblood 7″ on it, as well as “Set The Pace” which was going to be put on the “Memories Of Tomorrow” compilation on Youngblood. Like anything in the 1999 era of hardcore, this tape was numbered – mine is #18/29, haha. If I remember correctly, there was also an alternate version of this song on the “As The Sun Sets” SoCal compilation put out by this dude Graham.  That comp was CD only.

YB-6  V/A – “Memories Of Tomorrow” Compilation LPCarry On’s “Set The Pace” appeared on the classic Youngblood Records LP compilation “Memories Of Tomorrow” that featured Life’s Halt, What Happens Next, and tons of others. Pictured here is a test pressing in the upper left #18/24, the “bands” press on clear vinyl out of 150 in the upper right, clear vinyl with regular cover out of 200, and black vinyl out of 800. Each LP came with a sweet stapled booklet that had one page for each band.

The test pressings had shattered pieces of vinyl glued to the front of the LP sleeve. It would be interesting to know what records Joe and Sean smashed when creating these. haha. The booklet has a red cover instead of the usual blue. The vinyl has special hand-made labels glued on. Mine is #18/24.

Here’s a close-up of the shattered vinyl glued onto the front of the jacket. You can’t really tell it’s vinyl though. It would look cooler if it was transparent colored vinyl where you could easily see the grooves. I’ll bet each copy had a different record sacrificed for the cover, so maybe some of the others have something other than white vinyl, I’m not sure.

Here’s a close up of the hand-made labels that are glued on. The #18 (out of 24) is separately cut out, collage style, and glued on top of the label itself.

The “bands” pressing out of 150 had a special spray painted cover and more hand-made labels glued on the vinyl (but different labels than the test pressing). These were given to each member of a band that appeared on the comp and the couple extra left over were sent out to early pre-orders. I got mine directly from Youngblood via pre-order.

Here’s a closer look at the spray painted “bands” cover.

Close-up of the hand-colored labels that are glued onto the vinyl.

This note was included with each band copy out of 150.

This is the Carry On page of the stapled booklet that was included with every copy of this LP.

Carry On is pictured on the back cover of the booklet. Oddly enough, the guy on the right playing bass is Ryan Coughlin, and I’m pretty sure he only filled in for 5 shows or less with Carry On, and he made the album photo! hahaha. Ryan Coughlin was a kid that was going to college in San Luis Obispo, CA that would hang out in our crew while I was living there. I remember this very night that the photo was taken. It was taken at Jerry’s Pizza in Bakersfield, CA.  Ryan actually drove me from San Luis Obispo to the show in Bakersfield, and I remember him being all nervous and jacked up about the show on the drive over. I can’t remember if Josh Luce was just unavailable to play the show that night, or if Josh had already left for the military and it was that weird time in Carry On where they just never really had a very permanent bass player.  Either way, I think Ryan Coughlin only played a handful of shows filling in on bass for Carry On!

YB-7  Rain On The Parade – “Fired  Up” 7″This was a 7″ that Youngblood released just as Rain On The Parade was breaking up.  There was just one pressing, 320 on red vinyl, 700 on black vinyl.  I did own a copy on black vinyl but sold it a couple of months before taking these photos.  I also owned a test pressing, out of 24 copies, but I sold it on eBay last year.  I dug up the photo and included it below.

Here’s a photo of the test pressing I sold on eBay last year, out of 24 copies.

The insert has a cool tri-fold layout on thin glossy paper, ala the Chain Of Strength “True Till Death” 7″.

The inside of the insert.

YB-8  Life’s Halt / What Happens Next – “Start Something” LPThis was a cool split with Life’s Halt and What Happens Next, which they sold on their summer tour together.  I believe it was a split release between Youngblood and 625 Thrash (Max’s label, drummer of What Happens Next). The 1st pressing was 400 on gold vinyl, 1600 on black vinyl.  They did a 2nd pressing of 1,000 on black vinyl, but they are identical to the 1st pressing black copies, so I just owned the one black vinyl copy.

YB-9  Striking Distance – “March To Your Grave” LPStriking Distance was such a fucking cool band, and they never quite got the respect that they deserved.  They were around during a period when American Nightmare was pretty much the hardcore band, and I just think that Striking Distance was so much more in the vein of no-bullshit-hardcore-punk that they weren’t quite appreciated in the same way that maybe they would have been if they had existed during a different era.  Nonetheless, this LP seriously fucking rips, and Dave Byrd sounds like the angriest man alive, haha.  There was a red “pre-release cover” out of 126 copies on black vinyl, then they used the same artwork for a Winter Tour 2002 pressing on green vinyl, out of 100.  The green vinyl with regular cover is out of 375, with the remaining 525 on black vinyl.  Much later there was a final pressing on yellow vinyl, out of 100.  I also owned a test pressing of this LP, out of 24 copies, but I sold it on eBay last year. I dug up the photo and included it below.

Here’s the photo that I used when I sold the test pressing on eBay last year. There were 24 test pressings.

Close-up of the pre-release, mine is #23/126.

Here’s the back of the Winter Tour 2002 cover.  Kinda cool, mine is #001/100.  My band, The Damage Done, actually opened the show where I bought this LP.  It was in Santa Cruz, CA on February 1st, 2002 with Bane, Over My Dead Body, and Striking Distance.  I threw a copy of the flier in with the LP.

Here’s the layout and insert, along with a special red DIY insert that they used for the “pre-release” cover, but Youngblood also threw extra copies in those LP’s that they sent out via mail-order.

Here’s a flier that came with my Youngblood pre-order for the Striking Distance LP.  Notice the Carry On / Striking Distance 7″ and the Rancor “demo” 7″?!  Neither of those releases ended up happening on Youngblood, but I know for a fact that the Carry On / Striking Distance split was definitely further along than you might think!  Read my Carry On blog entry for more info regarding that.

YB-10  Tear It Up / Fast Times – “Split” 7″The 1st pressing had yellow ink on the labels, with 350 on white vinyl and 650 on black vinyl.  The 2nd pressing was 1,000 on black vinyl with orange ink on the labels.  There are a few 2nd press copies that got a “Fuck Philly” stamp, but the Youngblood discography doesn’t mention how many.  My guess is that these were sold at the same show as the Shark Attack “Fuck Philly” edition (same stamp), but I don’t remember if Tear It Up (or Fast Times) played that Shark Attack show, or what the deal was.  The Shark Attack “Fuck Philly” was numbered out of 60 copies, so my guess is there’s probably a similar amount of these.

Close-up of the “Fuck Philly” stamp.

The fold-over cover layout.

This flier was included in my Tear It Up / Fast Times 7″ from Youngblood.  What’s cool about this advertisement is the bottom left hand corner: The First Step 7″/CD and another reference to the Carry On / Striking Distance 7″/CD!  Again, neither of these ended up happening on Youngblood.  The photo used on the flier is from a Carry On show at Jerry’s Pizza in Bakersfield, CA.  This photo was also used on the back of the “Memories Of Tomorrow” compilation LP booklet.  I was definitely at this show – I remember riding to the show with Ryan Coughlin, who filled in on bass for Carry On that night.

YB-11  My Luck – “Is Frozen” 7″I remember this 7″ was always advertised by Youngblood as “My Luck… A band with a singer who is obsessed with Antarctica”.  Clif was a friend and record trading buddy of mine, and he was definitely a cool/weird dude!  We used to always talk online about zines, records, etc.  I do remember Clif would always say things as they would start their set like “It’s getting fucking cold in here…”, haha.  When this 7″ came out, pretty much every pre-order got orange vinyl out of 300.  The rest were 540 on regular black vinyl, and 60 on black with that blue record release cover, mine is #17/60.  Then there was this mysterious purple vinyl that was really hard to get.  Whenever Youngblood talked about it, they would say “out of ???”, and you could tell it was a weird thing that the band had requested to be kept a secret.  Haha, weirdos.  I didn’t own one for years and years, until I picked it up a couple years back from someone who was selling a bunch of 2000 era hardcore for cheap.  To this day the Youngblood discography just says “??? purple vinyl”.  You can tell from the other pressing numbers that there were almost certainly 100 copies pressed on purple – 300 on orange, 600 total on black, so 100 on purple makes a nice even 1,000.  But it’s very possible that they did something weird like destroying some of them to make them more limited – that seems like a “My Luck thing to do”, haha.  Years later, there was a final pressing with stamped labels made for a Youngblood Showcase, out of 100.  Mine is #44/100.  Since there appeared to be 100 covers left over for that final press, my guess would be that there were only 60 copies of the purple vinyl that got covers, and they destroyed the other 40 purple copies.  That would leave 40 covers empty, along with the 60 covers that were left empty from making the record release covers, to make 100 available covers.  Then again, maybe Youngblood just had extra covers lying around – many times you get a 10% over-run on print jobs.  Who knows.

Here’s the back of my record release copy, #17/60.

The fold-over cover layout.  That Chain shirt is very appropriate…  Clif fucking loved Chain Of Strength, man.  I definitely remember him always talking to me about Chain vinyl!

YB-12  Knockdown – “s/t” 7″Yo, the Knockdown 7″ is fucking sick!  Zack, the bassist of Shark Attack, sang in this band.  They released a more youth crew sounding demo under a different band name of “Full Contact”.  When they changed their name to Knockdown, their style changed quite a bit too, more towards a raging sound, ala Straight Ahead.  There was only one pressing – 175 on black vinyl with yellow labels for Positive Numbers Festival 2002, 300 on clear vinyl, and 525 on black vinyl with green labels.  The inside of the fold-over cover is blank, so the insert on the right has the lyrics on the reverse side.

Here’s a photo of the original Full Contact demo, released before they changed their name (and style) to Knockdown.

YB-13  Desperate Measures – “It’s On Your Hands” 7″I also owned a test pressing of the DM 7″, out of 24 copies, but I sold it last year on eBay. I found the photo that I used when I listed it on eBay and included it below.  The 1st pressing was 125 on white sold at Positive Numbers Festival 2002, 300 on blue, 250 on black vinyl with a tour stamp, and the remaining 275 on black.  The 1st pressing was a glued pocket cover plus insert, whereas the 2nd pressing was a fold-over cover with a photo-copied insert.  The labels on the 2nd pressing also changed to red labels.  2nd pressing was 200 on clear with Winter Tour 2003 cover, 300 on clear with regular cover, and 450 on black vinyl.  I remember buying that red Winter Tour Cover 2003 cover at a show at “Luna’s Mufflers” in San Jose, CA.  Striking Distance played that show too.  Luna’s Mufflers would literally have the band set up and play in a huge automotive garage, with kids moshing around huge lifts, jacks, broken down cars, and automotive tools.  I kept thinking I was going to get oil all over me somehow.  I wanted someone to start a circle pit which ran UNDER one of the cars that was jacked up way high on a lift – too bad there were literally about 8 people who paid at the show.  Funny and sketch, haha.

This is the photo I used when I sold my copy of the DM 7″ test pressing on eBay in 2010.  There were 24 test pressings.  It’s got a cool hand-drawn cover by the same guy that did other Youngblood “hoodie guy” drawings like the Knockdown 7″ and the Lights Out 7″.  The test pressing labels also have cool “D” and “M” stamps.

The 1st pressing was a glued pocket cover, with a cool gatefold style insert that opened from the middle.  The black vinyl copy shown is one of the 250 with Summer Tour 02 stamp on the dust sleeve and labels.

Close-up of the Summer Tour 02 stamp, out of 250 copies.

The 2nd press fold-over cover is blank on the inside, so it comes with this photo-copied insert.  Black vinyl, out of 450.  My copy also has a promo sticker for their upcoming full length.

YB-14  My Luck – “Cleaver” 7″After the “Is Frozen” 7″ came out, Youngblood released the My Luck “Cleaver” demo on vinyl.  Of course, it had Antarctica imagery again, haha!  I actually like the My Luck demo better than any other stuff they released – and I promise I’m not usually the type of asshole that always pulls the whole “their demo was the best thing they ever did”.  The 1st pressing of the “Cleaver” demo on vinyl was 500 on solid orange vinyl.  It looks like some have red labels, some have yellow labels, but the Youngblood discography doesn’t mention how many of each.  Some copies are such a dark orange that it almost looks solid red.  The 2nd pressing was definitely 500 on transparent red vinyl, and had yellow labels (bottom right).

The fold-over cover layout.

YB-15  Worn Thin – “Remnants Of What Could Have Been” 7″The 1st pressing was 400 on red, 600 on clear.  100 copies on clear were used for the record release, so actually 500 copies on clear have the regular cover.  The 2nd pressing was 500 on white.  138 have a tour stamp, 362 do not. I also owned a test pressing, out of 24 copies, but I sold it before taking this photo. Individual photos below.

The back of the test pressing cover, mine was #2/24.

Here’s a close-up of the record release on January 31, 2003, #92/100.

The insert on the left was included with the record release copies, the insert on the right was the regular insert.

Here’s the 2nd press “California Spring Tour 2004” edition, out of 138 copies, complete with alternate insert.

Close-up of the tour stamp, #118/138.

YB-16  Far From Breaking – “The Identity” 7″I remember getting a promo CD-R that FFB was selling at a show in Ojai, CA during the summer of 2003 which had 2 songs from their upcoming “Identity” recording.  I was super pumped for this release, because one of the songs actually reminded me a lot of Carry On “The Line Is Drawn” 7″, and I was hoping the entire FFB 7″ would be as good as this one song.  The song I liked was definitely the best song on the record, but that’s OK, I still thought this 7″ was pretty good.  FFB didn’t last for much longer after this, with Darrell getting more into a more Nerve Agents type vibe (he sang in Phantom Pains) and eventually a couple of the other guys doing Iron Age.  It’s crazy that Jason sang in both FFB and Iron Age – talk about a different sound and style!  The 1st pressing  was 138 on clear with record release cover (actually 150 on clear, but they threw 12 into the river to make 138 — what did I tell you about those My Luck / Texas dudes?), 300 blue, and 550 black.  100 black copies were later used for a “final show Deuce!” cover, but I never got one of those.  So there are actually 450 on black with regular cover.  The 2nd pressing was 500 on white vinyl, and 3rd pressing was 350 on gold vinyl.  I included a couple of cool Far From Breaking stickers in the photo.  I also owned a test pressing, out of 24 copies, but I sold it on eBay back in 2010.  I found a photo of it and included below.

Here’s a photo of the test pressing, out of 24.  I sold it on eBay back in 2010, so it didn’t make the main photo above – I had to dig out the photos I used for eBay.

Close-up of the record release cover from May 31, 2003.  The clear vinyl, out of 138 copies, was only used with this record release cover.  Also pictured is the insert and some stickers that came with the rec release cover.

The fold-over cover layout.  You can tell it was definitely influenced by the clean, crisp vibe of the In My Eyes “Nothing To Hide” layout.  A lot of records around this era seemed to be similarly influenced by that IME LP, for example, Champion “Count Our Numbers”.  I’ve always been a sucker for this type of layout.

YB-17  Desperate Measures – “Never Enough Time” LPAround the time that DM released their LP, it seemed like Desperate Measures was always around out here in California.  They toured their asses off, and were definitely Youngblood’s “biggest band”.  They put on a really fun live show, and they were a ton of fun to hang out with.  DM had become really close friends with Lights Out, and I used to go everywhere with Lights Out.  I went on an East Coast Tour with Lights Out and DM in 2004, and went on a trip to Seattle with Lights Out where Ryan from DM road around with us.  Ryan was super tight with my buddy Connor from Lights Out until a crazy ass incident occurred between DM and Lights Out in the Summer of 2004 on the DM, Mental, Lights Out tour – I won’t really get into it.  Anyway, that whole incident was pretty much the end of DM and I never really saw them around much anymore.  I do see Stigma, Gene, James, and 85 every once in a while when Lion Of Judah rolls through.  The black and orange cover on the bottom left is the record release cover, out of 300 copies.  The top row is the 1st pressing – 275 on blue, 325 on clear, 400 on black.  The white cover on the bottom right hand corner is a final pressing sold at Posi Numbers Fest 2005, out of 125 copies.  I also owned a test pressing of the DM LP out of 24 copies, but I sold it last year.

A photo of the test pressing, out of 24 copies.

The black and orange cover was a cool drawing that Linas Garsys did for them.  I remember them telling him to just make it look like a wild mosh/show scene with a gorilla involved, haha.  They used this drawing on a ton of different wild colored t-shirts that summer too.  This edition was sold at their record release shows on October 24th and 25th, 2003, out of 300 copies.

The final pressing, sold at Positive Numbers Festival 2005, out of 125 copies.

Just comparing the inserts.  Top row is front and back of the regular insert.  The bottom left is the insert from the final press, bottom right is the record release insert.

YB-18  Our Turn – “Catch Your Breath” 7″Our Turn sprung up in the San Francisco Bay Area when Carl Cordova got some guys together to play some very focused straight ahead hardcore.  You could tell from day one that this band was on a one-track mind, geared towards a very, VERY specific style of hardcore.  That style was specifically Wishingwell Records / Unity / Uniform Choice, all the way down to the Wishingwell “circle” style labels on the 7″, and the whole “hardcore guys hanging out in nature” vibe of the artwork.  I personally dig it a lot, because I’m probably just as obsessed with Wishingwell remnants as Carl is.  Uniform Choice “Screaming For Change” is one of my favorite hardcore records of all time, and I absolutely love the classic Wishingwell vinyl labels.  The 1st pressing was 225 on clear vinyl with blue labels only sold at Posi Numbers Fest 2004, 275 on clear vinyl with white labels, and 500 on black.  The 2nd pressing was 300 on blue vinyl, with the color of the “circle” labels changed to orange, which looks totally sweet with the blue vinyl!

Close-up of the Positive Numbers Festival 2004 pressing on clear vinyl with special blue labels, out of 125.

The layout is a sweet tri-fold layout printed on thin glossy paper, ala the Chain Of Strength “True Till Death” 7″.  Looks awesome!

Just for fun, I also included the Our Turn “Demo” 7″ here.  It was technically released by Steve TFS on “Urgency Records”, but I don’t think it even says so anywhere on the release.  There were a couple different covers for this release.

Here’s the original Our Turn demo tape.

YB-19  Lights Out – “Get Out” 7″Lights Out was an awesome band from the Bay Area, CA that featured some of my best friends Connor Spencer, James Gianello, and Aaron O’Neil.  Through the band, I also met Andrew “Durag” Dilburger and Kevin Williams, who were 2 young kids that were seriously fucking wild.  I used to go everywhere with Lights Out – I was quite a bit older than most of them, so I think I was like their dad? haha.  I went out with them on an East Coast tour with Desperate Measures, and on a bunch of different weekend trips to Seattle, LA, San Diego, places like that.  They were a lot of fun to hang out with, and there were always so many hilarious crazy stories to tell – like when Durag and Kevin decided to light my hair on fire in the van and then Durag asked Aaron “What’d ya think of the joke?” (in his weird Southern-ish sounding accent type thing), and Aaron replied with “I thought it was alright”. I wanted to kill all 3 of them, haha.  The first piece of vinyl shown in the photo above is a test pressing, out of 24 copies.  The record directly to the right of the test pressing is a story in-and-of itself, classic Lights Out style… It’s a record release record out of 115 copies, but they didn’t have the vinyl at the record release show, so you “went to the Lights Out record release and all you got was this lousy coupon”!  More detailed photos below.  The rest of the 1st pressing is shown on the bottom row – 150 on green vinyl, 300 on yellow vinyl, 435 on black vinyl, plus the 115 record release covers on black vinyl.  The 2nd pressing was 500 on black vinyl with red labels, but 170 of them have a Posi Numbers 2004 cover out of 170, so the other 330 have regular covers.

Close-up of the test pressing labels.

The record release was on March 20th, 2004.  This is the back cover of the record release, mine is #99/115.

“I went to the Lights Out record release and all I got was this lousy coupon!”  In true Lights Out fashion, they made these goofy coupons when the vinyl was not ready in time for their record release.  Instead of playing a record release show without a record to sell, they sold the “record” anyway, haha!  Well, not exactly.  They sold a photo-copied cover that came with this coupon.  When the vinyl finally came in, you could redeem your coupon for a 7″.   Kids ate it up, and they sold all of their covers and coupons pretty much immediately at the show.  At times like this, we would all just chuckle and say “typical Lights Out”.

Close-up of the green vinyl out of 150.  Two other classic Durag / Lights Out jokes shown in the photo here.  #1 is the “Dilburger Pride” sticker.  Andrew “Durag” Dilburger is the middle brother of 3 Dilburgers that have run around the Bay Area hardcore scene for the last 15 years or so.  Eldest brother “Dan-O” is 96-2000 “my era”, “Durag” is next generation “Lights Out age”, and “D3” is Andrew’s younger brother.  Anyway, Durag would run around at shows, putting these stickers on people’s fucking cars, on the back of people’s shirts, or hell, he’d even slap one on your face while he moshed by.  Like I said, classic Lights Out shit.  The second funny thing in this photo is obviously the black dude on the vinyl labels.  We were all hanging out at some shitty show at the Burnt Ramen, which is in a really hard area of Richmond, CA.  This sketchy/crazy dude was just roaming around the show, mumbling to himself, doing all sorts of crazy wrestling maneuvers in the pit, etc.  This kind of “bum behavior” was typical at Burnt Ramen shows.  Anyway, at some point I turn around to see Durag, Kevin, and Connor writing “Lights Out” all over this dude with something – I don’t remember if it was a white marker of some kind, sunscreen, chalk, or fucking white-out.  All I remember is me, Eightclip, and Aaron O’Neil just fucking cracking up at these idiots, and worried that we were going to have to bail them out of yet another sticky situation.  Classic, classic, classic Lights Out shit.  PS – You’re probably wondering why “Durag” is called Durag?  Well it’s because he spent an entire summer wearing cut-off shirts, and using the cut-off sleeves as headbands/durag looking things on his head.  Ryan Desperate Measures one time said “yo, what’s up with that little… that little… yo, what’s his name? that little Durag kid?!”  And it stuck.

Some crappy covers were made for Posi Numbers Fest 2004.  Mine is #165/170.  I remember the guys deciding at the last minute that they just had to have a limited cover for Posi Fest, so they scrambled to put this crappy thing together.  I remember sitting with them while they were putting these covers together at the Lights Out / Allegiance table at the Posi Numbers Fest that was in that big “maze” building.  We were all just sitting there laughing at how ugly and pointless these things were.  Yet another classic Lights Out job.

Here’s the full layout of the fold-over cover.

Just for fun, I thought I’d also put a photo of the original Lights Out “Demo 2003” cassette tape, since all of the other Lights Out releases came out on Youngblood.

Here’s a cassette tape of a full length released by Connor’s very first band, The Lab Rats.  Connor was about 14 years old when I met him singing in this band.  They were a cool punk band from SF.  My band, The Damage Done, would go on to play a ton of shows with them.  This laid the foundation for close friendships amongst all of us, and led to one of the guitarists from The Damage Done, James Gianello, later doing a band with Connor called… Lights Out.

YB-20  Lights Out – “Overload” LPLights Out’s “Overload” LP is a total rager.  They really stepped up their game from the “Get Out” 7″.  The 7″ was rooted in modern “goofy” Lockin Out style hardcore, but the LP built upon that style by incorporating more speed, anger, and even some rockin parts.  Connor’s vocals got way gnarlier, and the guitars got so much more dirty sounding and a hell of a lot more aggressive.  You started to hear all sorts of influences from Infest to Motorhead, haha.  Almost every song on this record is a banger, and the slower song at the end is a sweet change of pace.  Plus, the drawing on the cover of this record is so fucking cool!  I’ve always felt like this was such a great album cover.  All in all, a really underrated hardcore LP that should have gotten a lot more attention than it did.  Prior to the 1st pressing, there was actually a “pre-pressing” out of 325 made for their Summer Tour, shown in the bottom right.  The LP jackets were not ready, so they have a screen-printed jacket and a different insert.  The 1st pressing was 225 on pink, 300 on blue, and 525 on black.  The next summer, there was a 2nd press on white vinyl out of 202 for another summer tour. I also owned a test pressing of this release, out of 24 made, but I sold it back in 2010. It came with an alternate screen printed cover.

Test pressing with screen printed cover, out of 24 copies. I sold this a while back.

Close-up of the test pressing labels.

The “pre-pressing” out of 325 was made for their Summer Tour because the real LP jackets and inserts were not ready.  This cool “peace logo” looking thing was something Lights Out was using on a lot of their t-shirts around this time, too.

The following summer, they did a 2nd pressing for another summer tour, this time on white vinyl with stamped labels, out of 202.

The back cover of the Lights Out LP has this cool band photo.  I’ve always really liked this photo of the dudes.

YB-Vault-1  Touchdown – “Reach For The Top” 7″Youngblood released the Touchdown “Reach For The Top” 7″ as a split release with Malfunction Records.  This was actually released as “Youngblood Vault #1”, which they were planning to use for old re-issues of bands that were not around anymore.  Obviously YB never did any more of these releases, so it doesn’t really have a proper catalog number.  The YB discography has it listed as “YB-00”.  The first pressing was 500 on gold and 500 on red.  Gold vinyl was available via Youngblood, red vinyl via Malfunction.  Later there was a 2nd pressing on black vinyl.  Somewhere along the way, there was a plant mis-press, yielding these weird blue and purple looking copies.  I was told there were less than 25 of each color made.  I really have no idea why or how these could have been color “variants” since gold, red, and black vinyl aren’t anything close to these blue/purple mixed copies.  So it must have been a straight up mistake of some kind.  I got these weird colors from Tru Pray when he was selling off and shutting down Malfunction Records.  He had some extra test pressing covers lying around, so he went ahead and threw them on a blue and grey copy for me.  These weird colors are not test pressings, he just had the extra covers lying around.  I also have a grey copy that does not have a cover (upper right).

The back cover of the test pressing cover.  Again, these weird blue and grey copies are not test pressings, Tru Pray just had some extra test pressing covers lying around and threw them on these copies for me.
