    My first exposure to Mike Watt’s music was hearing the Firehose song “Brave Captain” in the “Streets Of Fire- video in 1989. As was the case in so many “how I discovered Punk” stories: this new kid moved in down the street from us and he was way into lots of cool stuff. He had tons of skate videos and a box filled with cassette tapes from bands I had never heard of: Black Flag. Minutemen, Sonic Youth, Meatmen, Dag Nasty. etc. Many of these cassettes had similar cover art: almost like demented comic strip cells with band names applied. This is how I became aware of Raymond Pettibon’s artwork. A couple weeks ago (while exchanging emails pertaining to some other Watt related tees) Mike sent me this photo of he and Raymond. He asked if we would be into putting it on a T-shirt. I said “yes” and here you have it. Get it while we got it! Photo by The Pope. -Charles Cardello
