On our ninth outing in New York City, we have all music acts on people’s backs. Row one starts with a screen print on leather of U.K. punk band The Adicts, and then gives us a psychedelic whirl of death and black metal patches, ending on a huge one for Slayer. In the second row there is a nice one for Queens’ Ramones, centered by an amazing hand-painted reproduction of Celtic Frost‘s To Mega Therion LP, and then a giant Misfits Fiend Club patch backs this beauty on St. Marks Place. The last row has got a great one for heavy metal legend Ronnie James Dio, one for Mercyful Fate surrounded by a small swirl, and we finish off on an oddly colored one for Virginia grindcore band Pig Destroyer.
