On 11/28/1992 Some high school friends and I drove to Chapel Hill, NC’s Cat’s Cradle to see The Jesus Lizard. Upon arrival someone alerted me to the fact that “The singer from Dag Nasty’s band” was also on the bill. I’d been a fan of Dag Nasty and ALL! and I was excited to see what Dave Smalley was up to with this new band. Down By Law didn’t disappoint and by the end of the evening, I’d purchased their self titled full length (on cassette) and (over the next few years) preceded to wear that tape out. I was also a big fan of 1994’s “Punk Rock Academy Fight Song” LP.
A few months ago Brian sent me a drawing of the band ALL he’d done featuring the 3 singers from their past and present (including Dave Smalley). One thing lead to another and Brian ended up contacting Dave about doing a shirt with his first band (Boston’s DYS). We did the DYS shirt and since we were now in touch with Mr. Smalley, we asked him about doing a Down By Law shirt. As it turns out, Dave Smalley is a friendly, accommodating individual. We hope you like our Down By Law design. Their new album “All In” was just released in August and it rules! -Charles Cardello/ Bifocal Media
