(Impatient) Youth-Don't Listen Lp

Ok here it is. For anyone that digs The Clash, SLF, or early Social Distortion then this is for you. (Impatient) Youth were from Vallejo, California, which is about 40 miles east of San Francisco. Vallejo is not the prettiest place to be from, and in fact, they are probably the only band I can think of that had any success from there. (Impatient) Youth specialized in tuneful, rocking punk rock. Once you hear them, they are a band where you slap your head and say, where have these guys been all of my life! They were THAT good. Just listen to Praise The Lord and Pass The Ammunition and tell me that is not one of the most catchy punk songs ever. (Impatient) Youth were around from 1978 to around 1982, and then released a pretty good Ep in the early '90's with Billy Martin (guitar, lead vocals) as the only original member. By then he had moved to LA and had his wife at the time playing bass. Maybe I will post that soon.


  1. Nice post Kenny. I'll never understand why/how this band aren't better known, as they are catchy as hell as you say.

    I've not heard the 7'' you're taking about so look forward to that.


  2. Thanks so much, Someone lent me this vinyl (a german one) like 20 yrs ago, i recorded it to cassette and could never listen to it anymore... until now! Greetings from Colombia.
