When H-Street made Shackle Me Not and Hokus Pokus back in the 80’s, using original music was a huge priority and we were able to find bands that no one had ever heard of at that time. One such band was Kirk & The Jerks from Lancaster, PA. They had a number of classic titles that helped make the video’s legendary, along with the unique riders at that time, like Ron Allen, Danny Way, Matt Hensley, Tony Mag and so many more. Of course, The Jerks weren’t the only band, there was also Sub Society, Operation Ivy, Ron Allen’s MC Intelligent and so many bands that helped make the videos what they are. It is also true that we helped put these bands on the map in a rather unprecedented way, so it was a great partnership for us and the bands.
Kirk & The Jerks was a classic back east garage rock band for a number of years in the late 80’s and 90’s, had a couple of different goes at it and broke up sometime in the 90’s but the band members are still around and an effort to create a complete Discography of their recorded material was undertaken by Division Street Sounds Records, who called us and asked if we had an interested in the project. When Tony Mag got to hear this news, a resounding “Hell yeah we do”, forged a very special colab project that includes a Jerks Vinyl Record with 12 of their best songs, two CD's with all their available material, 37 in all and a and download code. We also made a special edition deck graphic in two shapes and two T-Shirt designs.
T-Shirts are 100% super soft preshrunk ring-spun cotton, tag less with a double needle bottom hem and sleeves. Shoulder-to-shoulder taping, cover seamed neck.
We are doing this with our new T-Shirt print partners that do digital printing, which is different from silk screening. You will get a smoother and lighter print that “breathes” better than silk screening. All T-Shirts hold up better with a gentle wash cycle.
