“More Than A Witness ”
- Artist Brian Walsby
Release # BFLD160
Limited to 300
“Be More Than A Witness” was the slogan espoused by the infamous, LA based, Flipside Fanzine. The whole, creative “get off your ass and contribute” (to the Los Angeles punk scene) totally resonated with me when I discovered my first issue in the summer of 1982. It was like finding a world of scary/ cool shit an hour away from where I lived in Southern California. It might as well have been another universe as far as I was concerned. Every issue in the early eighties was like a bible to me. I loved the magazine in their glory days and I have to thank Joe Henderson for being cool about me and Charles working together on this shirt. This one features the late (and much missed) Bill Bartel (aka Pat Fear) of White Flag and Gasatanka Records fame. Bill was part of a line of many great characters to come out of the Los Angeles scene that Flipside dutifully reported on and we’re more than proud to pay tribute to him.
In agreement with Joe and Flipside, a portion of profits from this shirt will be donated to Gigi’s Playhouse here in Raleigh where I live. They help out people of all ages who have Down syndrome, and my daughter Willow is one of those people. Thanks to Joe and Gigi’s Playhouse for making this happen. I hope you enjoy this shirt. Thanks! -Brian Walsby
