CROSSED OUT – "power violence hc" bootleg shirt


When "power violence" was exciting and – most important – still just used to be called hardcore, bands like No Comment, PHC, Infest, Neanderthal and of course Crossed Out defined what became a fixed term later and I think it was - for this particular time - a very interesting and validate expression of hardcore punk (and becoming a fart when bands all over the world (especially Europe and Japan) started a cover contest in sound, lyrics and artwork).

A reader of the blog said that the posted Infest bootleg shirt has a disgusting motif (the cover of the 2nd 7") and I answered that it was nothing compared to a Crossed Out shirt that was done by the same guys.

The picture is also the cover of the Rorschach/ Neanderthal split 7". It is as far as I know a picture from the Korean war by Margaret Bourke-White. The back print is from the lyrics of "Crutch" which just fit the motif.

Around the same time when the bootleg 10" and LP came out someone did a black and grey bootleg shirt with different designs and I am looking for them; maybe someone wants to clear his/her closet?!
