magazine introduced an unsuspecting public
to the likes of the Sex Pistols, Clash,
Siouxsie and the Banshees and other hitherto
unknown bands. LA's own backyard was amply
covered with reports on X, Germs, Fear,
Black Flag, and many others. The last
issue of Slash featured articles on Crass
and Adam and the Ants. My Slash cover
drawing was not only a political statement,
it also served as a rebel fashion exclusive!
I can't take full credit for this, but
soon after my artwork hit the streets,
legions of youth in Los Angeles began
to sport Mohawk haircuts. Ah - the power
of an image!
