Vintage Right Brigade "1999" Pullover Sweatshirt

Boston's Right Brigade released their demo in 1998 on Standhard Records. This was at at time in Boston when Ten Yard Fight and In My Eyes were the city's best known exports and when referencing Youth of Today's We're Not In This Alone became a foundational aesthetic for the Youth Crew revival. Right Brigade did the opposite, they were named after the Bad Brains song and their approach was definitely not positive (even if Right Brigade singer was coming from positive CTHC band Follow Through). They played a, dare I say, much darker style of hardcore. By the time Right Brigade released their 7" on Stillborn Records in 1999, American Nightmare, who also featured Jesse Standhard on bass and who would later rip off this very sweatshirt for their own merch, was beginning and continued on this darker New England HC sound, while adding more emotionally introspective lyrics, and took the hardcore world by storm. The hardcore sea change that started at the turn of the millennium starts, in part, with Right Brigade. This hoodie, sold by the band in 1999, might be the band's rarest, even rarer than the "Clevo Sucks" cover of the 7". It is also notably being worn by Ryan Shafer in the insert of the Frostbite 7".
