Dionysus Records has released a various artists comp called Tiger Mask Trash Au Go-Go which includes a previously unavailable Untamed Youth track! It's "Fight Fire" (yep, the Golliwogs song - you can hear the original on the Nuggets box set) and it's from the Youth's very first recording session ever in early '87 (the same one that produced "Minor Chaos"). This album is out now, so harass your local music provider! Or, just buy it online.

The Youth perform "My General Lee," a tribute to Deke's passion for the Dukes of Hazzard (which is detailed extensively in an article by Deke hisself elsewhere in that ish); the SCOTS track is called "Tidewater Jack." These two tracks are only available on this 45!
"F.u.j.i.m.o.," one of the great instro tracks from 1997's Planet Mace platter, appears on Rock Don't Run, Vol. 3 on Spinout Records.

Or Astroman?, Satan's Pilgrims, and other Estrus acts.)
Bikini World, released last fall by Repeat/Relativity, includes the Youth's rendition of a Trashmen tune called "Tube City." This recording was made back in 1991 by the first California line-up of the Untamed Youth, featuring Deke and Mace plus Greg Hunt (now of the Bomboras) on guitar and Dave Stuckey (he was the Dave in the Dave and Deke Combo) behind the kit. This version of the Youth only recorded four songs, and they've always been kinda hard to find. Well, now you can pick up "Tube City" on this comp! You'll also find tracks by SCOTS, Laika & the Cosmonauts, the Phantom Surfers, the
Boss Martians, the Bomboras and Los Straitjackets. Check it out!
