Logo #226: Negative FX
Singer Jack "Choke" Kelly designed the Negative FX sigil, a take on hardcore's HxC icon, in 1982 for the Boston hardcore band's Taang album. Here they are, doing "Might Makes Right." Their legacy - in these days of cultural necrophilia - is an impressive one; they played five shows in their short lifetime but their impact lies somewhere between that of fruit flies and flash fires. Sometimes one LP is all you need. They turned into Last Rights. Really, sometimes one LP is all you need!
