  • Part One: The Death Squad


He began doing the bubble and mechanical styles of the era, and by 1975-6 he truly came into his own. From 1977 to 1980 few writers could compete with Part One and his TDS partners. These young men burned the subway lines from Brooklyn to the Bronx with their elaborately stylized letterforms and innovative color schemes. At the time Part One's aliases Fudge 357 and Worm 2 were seen on the trains in great abundance. Today, Part One continues to burn and is considered an original New York City style master. Part One of The Death Squad Fame and his crew have remained somewhat under the radar in regards to media recognition, even though they are considered one of the most prolific and influential style crews in the history of graffiti, and some of the biggest names in writing were affiliated with them. This book sets the record straight, giving Part One of TDS credit where credit is due. It is the first publication dealing exclusively with his impact on writing culture, with stories from the early days in 1974 until now, tracing his development as a writer and an artist over the years. Includes exclusive material and unpublished archives, including sketches, pieces, trains and bombings from the Part One and TDS vaults: historical gems, finally given the treatment that they deserve.
