“Deep Deep DNA”
- Artist Chris Shary
Release # BFLD316
Limited to 500
My introduction to Punk and skateboarding came from a very definitive video I saw back in 1982. DEVO’s “Through Being Cool” completely changed my 11 year old brain when I first stumbled across it on the very new MTV. It was completely unlike anything I had seen or heard before, and the anthem of going against the normal people was POWERFUL to a kid in Junior High. Through DEVO I discovered The Clash, Billy Idol, Generation X, the Damned, and the Sex Pistols; but DEVO was there first. DEVO has been the soundtrack to my life for 40 years now. There has never been a time when I was not listening to them. The are deep, deep in my DNA.
I give this background so you, the reader, may better understand what an incredible honor it is for me to be working with the band. Honestly, this is as big and as important as it gets for me. When I was asked to work up a design from this amazing photo by the late Michael Heeg, you could have knocked me over with a feather. I couldn’t be happier and I couldn’t be more honored. It’s massive for me, and I do hope you enjoy it. -Chris Shary
