Obey clothing and Suicidal Tendencies have teamed up together to bring a range of clothing and Suicidal Tendencies skateboard decks that celebrate 30 years of the band.
Shepard Fairy started listening to the band around the same time he got into skateboarding in 1984 and the two things seemed to go together. Shepard loved the scruffy punk, do it yourself vibes that Suicidal Tendencies had, something also close to the earlier days of skateboarding.
The links between skateboarding and the band where not too far away, Mike Muir, the lead singer of the band was the younger brother of Jim Muir, Dog Town Skateboards founder.
The guys that would be skating bowls would all be wearing bandanas to keep the hair out of their eyes. A look Suicidal took on board and is just as synonymous with the band as the art work that goes with it.
Further links between the band and the world of skateboarding lie within the bands art work. Rick Clayton and Lance Mountain producing much of the bands art work. Lance completed his first pieces for the band for a ticket to go and see them.
The collection is a range of Obey Suicidal Tendencies t-shirts and hoodies available in all colours as long as it is black and white.
