Existing for just nine months between March and December 1981, Youth Brigade became a vital part of the birth of the D.C. hardcore scene, alongside fellow band Minor Threat. Formed from the ashes of Teen Idles — of whom Minor Threat's Ian MacKaye was also a member — and the Untouchables, Nathan Strejcek and Danny Ingram worked their way through various guitarist and bass players, finally settling on Tom Clinton on guitar and ex-Untouchables' Bert Queiroz on bass. Shows in their native Washington culminated in a support slot for Black Flag at their first East Coast show. Youth Brigade's only official release came in the shape of an eight-rack E.P. for MacKaye's Dischord Records. Released in 1981, the Possible EP was named as a tongue-in-cheek dig at an advert for upcoming Dischord releases, listing a "possible EP" from the band. After their break-up, Bert Queiroz went on to play with Double-O and Rain, while Danny Ingram joined British shoegazers Swervedriver for a brief stint in 1992. The band reunited in 2012 — minus Clinton — for a benefit show for the D.C. hardcore documentary Salad Days.
