Deptartment of Youth Sevices

The Brotherhood LP by DYS is my favorite from the band and most people would agree with that statement. True Boston hardcore before they went for a more metal/crossover sound. This classic LP can easily be argued into anyones "All Time Best Hardcore" album list. Eventually I would like to own the XClaim #4 copy of this, but when I saw that Taang! was reissuing this on red vinyl /500 I was all over it. They are still available at Rev HQ and if you are a fan of old school Boston hardcore then this is a must own. This is one of the best hardcore records ever made, so don't sleep and go pick up a copy on color vinyl for cheap instead of getting raped on Ebay!


  1. I'm completely torn on this one. On the one hand, I would love to own a colored vinyl copy of this great LP...on the other hand, since I don't own an Xclaim original, I feel like I'm taking the easy way out if I buy this.

  2. haha id rather listen to their later albums than listening to their newest stuff.poorly written grandaddy pubrock.

    of course brotherhood is the classic.will order soon.

  3. I would be hesitant if it had a large pressing number like /2000, but /500 on color seems relatively small for such a classic. I say go for it! I could see this fetching a cool $40 on ebay in 3 or 4 years once its all OOP (assuming they keep it that way.)
