MOSCOW DEATH BRIGADE SUPPORT SEA-WATCH WITH BENEFIT SHIRT
Moscow Death Brigade – the ski-mask wearing techno/rap/punk crew from Russia, joins forces with French Graffiti veteran POCH and German antifascist music label Fire And Flames…
…to release the collab t-shirt in support of Sea-Watch – a non-profit initiative that operates in the Mediterranean Sea, commissioning ships to rescue refugees and legally fighting for human rights. Sea-Watch has been saving lives of thousands of people for many years. For this t-shirt, POCH painted the name of Moscow Death Brigade and their original mascot – ski-mask wearing, boltcutter wielding crocodile, accompanied by the slogan “No One Is Illegal”. The t-shirts with the photo of the Graffiti piece are distributed by Fire And Flames Music – a Kiel-based left-wing music label and clothing brand. All the profits from sales are going to Sea-Watch.
“We have always admired Sea-Watch crew for their hard, dangerous and selfless work: saving lives of those who have to run from the horrors of war and genocide.” – says Boltcutter Vlad, one of Moscow Death Brigade’s MCs. “Now we have a chance to show some support while working together with our friends – French Graffiti hero POCH and German antifascist brand Fire And Flames Music. And we absolutely love the Graffiti piece with our band name that POCH did for this project!”
