Here are some photos of vinyl leading up to the ideas for my backpiece.

First Ideas

music portland streetpunx criminal damage

First picture showing (from left ): portland streetpunx criminal damage first lp with lyric sheet; "and it won´t be stopped by rain and time won´t ease this suffering all i know s we´ll fight for what we need" taken from the song "power of fools". in the middle there´s the born/dead - peligro social split 7-inch-single. anarcho-punk with kind of spanish revolution inspired artwork. On the right (above) there´s the "deutschland in decline"-sampler of heartfirst records. a good way to sum up the attitude described by that tattoo. also on the right, of course, there´s the citizens patrol 7-inch-single. dutch hardcore punk in 80ies-us-hc-style.

second ideas

music albums this bike is a pipebomb fugazi

Second pic´s showing the backcover of the "this bike is a pipebomb" lp. the two songs "this is what i want" and "the argument" (also an amazing fugazi-song) made it into the backpiece. on the left you can see the second lp by "criminal damage" showing the pigs in their classic pose.
