This is Round 11 of taking shots of people’s backs in NYC. This time, it’s all music. The first row starts off with a bright pink one for local Brooklyn natives The Homewreckers, next is a head-scratching, and seriously punk-looking, put-together for Tom Petty, and then a girl is missing her back patch, but still has her bottom rocker for Berkeley, Calif. punks Crimpshrine. In row two, we have an “all studded jacket” line-up: beginning with NYC ska-core outfit Choking Victim, centered by a Spanish punk’s call for “a punk new world,” and finishing on U.K. hardcore punks Chaos UK. Our last row starts with a dark one for Oakland, Calif. doomsters Noothgrush, a bright red one for The Exploited surrounded by a swirl of punk patches, and ending off on a fan of a young Ozzy Osbourne.
