10.DEEP x JOHN JOSEPH

May 08/2012

During our barrage of Spring photoshoots, we crossed paths with John “Bloodclot” Joseph of New York’s legendary, first-wave hardcore band, The Cro-Mags.  John represents a not-too distant but very different era of New York City’s street subculture, and is one of many of our understated influences.  He was gracious enough to spend some time talking with us about New York’s bad old days, the early punk/hardcore scene, and the importance of maintaining individuality today.  Check out the interview, some vintage Cro-Mags footage and John sporting some Spring ’12 pieces here.

To commemorate the occasion, we created a tee as an homage to The Cro-Mags’ iconic album, THE AGE OF QUARREL.  It will be available in very limited quantities at the webshop on Thursday, May 10th at Noon (EST).
