YDI "A Place in the Sun" 2xLP
In the early 1980s, YDI put Philadelphia, PA on the punk map with their ferocious brand of hardcore. In 1983, they unleashed their debut 7" "A Place In The Sun," a blistering nine-track blast of American hardcore fury. Circa 1985, the band changed musical directions and created filthy, metallic, damaged punk. The "Black Dust" (a concoction of PCP, heroin and formaldehyde) LP was YDI's final recording and a criminally underrated slab of disgusting mayhem. This double vinyl document contains every known recording of the band. Also inside is a 10" x 10", full-color photo book with tons of never-before-seen images.
