Bored Youth were geographical and chronological peers of Negative Approach, the Meatmen, and the Fix, hailing from West Bloomfield, Michigan. Although they weren’t as superior or influential as the aforementioned bands, it’s surprising that they didn't release a 45 on Touch and Go…. or a record at all for that matter. Regardless, this post showcases their November 1981 demo tape. The songs are emblematic considering the overall canon of Midwest hardcore at the dawn of the 1980s: barely outlasting the confines of 60 seconds and immediate. Nonetheless, it’s a respectable demo, especially the anthem “Outcast.”
This demo was pressed once under highly questionable circumstances by infamous crooks, Lost and Found. It was included in a box set consisting of material by the Meatmen, United Mutation, Impatient Youth, and White Flag. This demo was also included on the rare “I Estimated Your Worth Today” cassette which also featured demos recordings by Violent Apathy, The Fix, Negative Approach, Crucifucks, etc.
Members of Bored Youth went onto obtaining degrees in law and committing suicide.
