This Richard Hell shirt – one of 12 produced in 1977 by NY punk photographer Eileen Polk – is currently for sale by UK memorabilia specialists Dig Gallery.
“I picked the image from a photo-session I had done with Eileen,” says Hell. “Then she got on with producing them to be sold in Manic Panic, who also hand-painted each one. ”
Manic Panic was the boutique opened on July 7, 1977 in St Mark’s Place NYC by Tish and Snooky, the sisters who had been singers in the original Blondie line-up and also performed as the Sic F*cks.
