This flyer has never been released. It was an alternative to the second flyer Kevin Crowley drew for The Abused.
Together with Crowley, I’m working on a series on his artwork for The Abused right now and this is one of the treasures he shared with me. When I wrote up an overview of his work a year or so ago, I was so fixated on finding all 12 flyers that I didn’t really give each of them a closer look. Right now, I discover how rich Crowley’s artwork is, how many stories it tells about him, his band, and New York Hardcore. Also, talking about it with him makes these foundations of hardcore come alive again. It’s fascinating.
More on this in the next weeks.
