Jerry's Kids

Jerry's Kids was one of the earliest Boston hardcore bands, from Braintree.
Their first recorded output was on the Modern Method record label's This Is Boston, Not L.A. compilation LP in 1982. They contributed six tracks. rising out of a local scene that included such bands as SS Decontrol, the F.U.'s, Freeze, Negative FX, and Gang Green, Jerry's Kids caught their first break in 1982, when they were featured on a compilation of local talent (This Is Boston, Not L.A.), which created a buzz for the band beyond just Boston. 1983 saw the release of their debut album for X-Claim Records, Is This My World. The group spilt from the label shortly thereafter, leading to the album being shortly out of print, before the Taang! label reissued it. 1989 saw the release of their second and final release, Kill Kill Kill, before splitting up.
