Dusted

In 1985 YDI followed up A Place In The Sun with The Black Dust LP. Many people were turned off by the slower tempos, longer songs, and even more metallic overtones (mainly in their manner of dress) of YDI at this time. Everything that made YDI and A Place In The Sun so potent are still present on Black Dust, the rage, the skronky wonky guitar tones, and most importantly, the animalistic voice of Jackal. Black Dust is a an arduous beating with a blunt instrument, a beating you've had coming for a long time. Just take it like a man.

How was the Halloween show?..Troy

I'm working on some Crow and Muga button designs,is that what you're looking for?????

Aesop said...

Troy, go ahead and repost stuff if you want, just give me a mention. Crow, yeah. Don't know Muga beyond their contribution to the Japanese Assault comp. Mainly looking for Confuse, Kuro, Gai, GISM, Coward, Gas Mask, Tranquilizer, The Comes, Zouo....

Aesop said...

Oh, and The Halloween show was great. Asunder and Corrupted crushed. We were okay as well. Lot's of people, lots of costumes.

It's at the bottom of the Samhain post. I saw Corrupted 8 years ago when I lived on Elm St. in the Long Beach. I think it was at the Troubador but I could be mistaken,maybe it was at Koo's in Santa Ana.
I actually haven't heard anything since I got Llenandose de Gusanos but I would love to see them again. That's the problem with all the great Japanese band,they don't really hit the East so often. the only one I can think of that has is Coffins. Mostly,I'm shit out of luck when it comes to that. Amebix is playing Boston for $15, I'll kill a fucker to get in that door........................Troy

Lots of Costumes......YYEEEEEEAAAHH

This is a pretty awesome & original slab & really has me wondering why YDI never really appeared on my radar. Thanks for this. After looking what's out there YDI-wise I see this getting quite the bagging on at least one other blog that I kinda trust - or at least used to.... glad I read about it on yours first.
