    Boston Hardcore of the early eighties! Before I owned Brotherhood by DYS, i used to hear it at the old Cathay De Grande nightclub in Hollywood. This was around 1984. “Escape” was my jam. Soon, I got a copy of that record and thought it was cool..look at the back cover of that record and see the live shots and how they are dressed. These guys certainly paved the way for what people would call “Straight Edge Hardcore” in years to come. Musically speaking I was down with the brisk songs and Dave Smalley’s (at the time) “Tony The Tiger” vocal styling (ha ha ha). Of course times change and so did DYS. After the end of their short original run they reformed in the year 2010 and spent the next seven years playing shows and releasing new music. I even drew a shirt for them during that time period too! Perhaps they’ll be back for more in the future? Dave and Jonathan are both cool guys and have always been nice to me. Hopefully the kids (and kids at heart) will dig this new DYS shirt that me and Charles put together. Thanks! -Brian Walsby
