Item details

Vintage from the 1970s

This t-shirt belongs to Winston Smith, collage artist and graphic designer for bands such as Green Day, Dead Kennedys, Ben Harper, and the designer of the Alternative Tentacles logo on this shirt.
Please notice the eyes on this shirt. They are not angled like the logo we all know. A short run of this version was made before they eyes on the bat were change to be angled. Which is the same logo we've seen on records and shirts since about 1980. So, this is a super unique and rare piece of punk history. Safe to say that this shirt also made its way into many late 70's/early 80's punk shows in San Francisco at Mabuhay Gardens and the On Broadway.

A true collectors item for those who love Winston Smith's work, Alternative Tentacles or the Dead Kennedys.

The shirt is washed and a bit off-white with a couple small wear and tear marks. Nothing major at all.
