Reagan Youth at Brick By Brick, 10-1-14
REAGAN YOUTH Proves Punk Rock Will Never Die
but Paul Cripple would rather be playing HO– USE OF GOD
by Reviewer Rob
I shot the videos below as well as a photo gallery of Reagan Youth, “the reformed 80’s iconic hardcore punk band out of NYC,” this week at The Brick.
I got a cd in the mail and will prepare a review of it as well as the band presently. Give me a few days.
Here’s some of the advance PR that was received via email from Nico, their tour manager:
“The band is going to playing the Brick by Brick club on the 1st of October…
“Dave insurgent and Paul Cripple formed Reagan Youth in Queens New York, attending High school at the same time as the Ramones, and helped define the emerging punk scene. Paul broke up the band after Dave committed suicide in 1993, an event spurred on in part by Dave’s girlfriend being murdered by serial killer Joel Rifkin.
“On this tour Reagan Youth will be playing songs from Dave and Paul’s unreleased and final work together, entitled “House of God”. These long Zeppelin / Sabbath-esq tracks, previously only available as rare demos laid down only weeks before Dave’s tragic death, we’re to be the next chapter. House of God is to Religion as Reagan Youth is to Politics, and the band is thrilled to finally give these songs the audience they deserve.
“This was the last time “House of God” was played live, back in ’88 in Tompkins Square Park NYC… video.”
