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. Frontman Bryan Jones and rhythm guitar player Dave Aronson later left the band, bass-player Rick Jones (Bryan's brother) switched to vocals and Chris Doherty of Gang Green took over on rhythm guitar. It was this line-up that recorded the classic 12 song LP Is This My World? on X-Claim in 1983, featuring songs like "Cracks In The Wall", "Tear It Up" and "Vietnam Syndrome".
