1981. Mabuhay Gardens in San Francisco. Black Flag invited 7 Seconds to play with them. The night I met Henry in person. He even “X’ed” Steve Youth and I up before the gig.

Can you spot me? - Kevin Seconds

Flyer from JFA’s first gig. May 5, 1981, before we were even called JFA, we were called The Breakers. Then we found out that some hippy surf band in California already had that name, so since all our friends already called themselves JFA after our song “Jodie Foster’s Army” and we already had bandannas that Bam-Bam made by stealing his mother’s bed sheet, dying it green, cutting it in squares, and writing JxFxAx on it with a black marker, we had a pretty easy time coming up with our new name. -JFA

THE ART OF PUNK – BLACK FLAG
June 11th, 2013 by Larry

On the first episode of “The Art of Punk” the art of the legendary Black Flag is dissected. From the iconic four bars symbols, to the many coveted and collected gig flyers, singles, and band t-shirts, all depicting the distinctive Indian ink drawn image and text by artist Raymond Pettibon. We start of in Los Angeles talking to two founding members singer Keith Morris, and bass player Chuck Dukowski, about what the scene was like in 1976 – setting the stage for the band’s formation, as well as the bands name, and the creation of the iconic four bars symbol. Raymond Pettibon talks with us from his New York art studio. Back in LA we meet with Flea, from the Red Hot Chili Peppers, about how the art, the music, and that early LA scene impacted his own life and career. To wrap it all up we sit and talk at length, with Henry Rollins, at MOCA Grand Ave in Los Angeles, about all of the above and more.

FULL FACE BACKSLIDE

This photo by Al Flipside was shot the first time Minor Threat came to Los Angeles in 1982. It originally ran in Flipside no. 47 (1987). The original image was shot outdoors in pitch black night with just a flash. Merrill Ward of SWA is also in this photo.  Note the cigarette in his hand in the lower left hand corner of the photo which merited Ian’s “full face backslide.” – Joe Henderson
