DYS


Fire & Ice + Wolfpack, 1983/1985 (1989 reissue)
From the infamous 80s "youth crew" Boston scene, let's dig out the straight edge buddies of SSD and Negative FX. The first demo and album Wolfpack are the classic Neg Fx sounding short, raw, fast, explosive stuff we love. Funny to remember that singer Dave Smalley then moved on to the melodic punk rock of Dag Nasty to influence what would be tagged "emo" years later. Fire And Ice is the same thing as the 1985 tamer and hard rock oriented DYS album, somewhere between Uniform Choice's Starring Into The Sun and SSD's Break It Up. The hardcore-arena rock branch of crossover... Not a bad album, yet I often jump directly to track 9 on the CD. Don't miss the Iron Man cover.
CD rip.

  1. DYS were a great band but damn if I don't like the second record better than the first!
