YOUTH OF TODAY – “WE’RE NOT IN THIS ALONE” FISTS/ROPE ART
May 1st, 2014 by Tim
Following the two other Youth Of Today shirt art entries we did, I questioned Porcell about the Youth Of Today – “We’re Not In This Alone” fist/ropes design and the alternate version of that art that was used on a flyer. Here’s what he had to say:
“The Youth Of Today – “We’re Not In This Alone” fist/ropes design was done by an art director out of a Rhode Island merch company, that had no connection to hardcore. I can’t recall the name of the merch company, but they also did Gorilla Biscuits shirts and those famous, “This Is Not A Fugazi Shirt” shirts. As for the Living Room show flyer with the fists/chains, that must have come after the the shirt design, but was based on the shirt. – Porcell”
THE YOUTH OF TODAY FIST ART
April 15th, 2014 by Tim
Following the theme of the Youth Of Today – “Youth Crew 88” shirt design post, I got a little info out of Porcell regarding the original Youth Of Today X’ed fist art. Anyone that’s familiar with Youth Of Today, is sure to be familiar with their classic X’ed fist logo. The art has appeared on countless shirts, stickers, pics, flyers and plenty of tattoos and here’s what Porcell had to say about it…
The original Youth Of Today X’d up fist was done by this Mahopac, New York kid named Herbie Straight Edge. Herbie originally drew the fist on the back of a gas station type jacket. Herbie became a skinhead and started drinking so he gave the jacket to Cappo. We traced the fist art off the back of the jacket and used it for Youth Of Today. -Porcell
SUPREME MOSH TEE

In what is most likely a “used without permission” photo, Supreme, has this interesting new “Mosh Tee” in their Spring/Summer 2014 catalog. The shirt features the photo taken by Bri Hurley and made famous from originally appearing on the back cover of Revelation Records’ first release, the Warzone “Lower East Side Crew” 7″.

Insted bassist, Rich Labbate has been hard at work with his company, The Underground Faction, for three years now. Rich is constantly adding new shirt designs to The Underground Faction catalog and just added this brand new “Out Of Step”, Dischord/DCHC/Minor Threat inspired design recently. Take a minute to check out the site and see below for The Underground Faction’s story. –Tim DCXX
